Usually, when making the change from vegetarian to vegan, the last thing you give up is dairy. It was the last thing I gave up, but here is just one more reason why you should consider it. Not only does dairy directly provide the veal industry with baby calves, but vegetarians that consume cheese on a regular basis are considerably MORE likely to suffer from iron-deficiency anemia than vegans. This is because dairy not only lacks, but actually interferes with iron absorption, making you more likely to suffer from iron-deficiency anemia. Think about that the next time you reach for that parmesan!
