    It really is rather lovely that you're spacing out all your links in an effort to make it look like there are more of them ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I would like to point out that these are legitimate quotes from exactly the same sources of scientific evidence that you have given:

    "When a vegetarian diet is appropriately planned and includes fortified foods, it can be nutritionally adequate for adults and children and can promote health and lower the risk of major chronic diseases."

    "vegetarians typically have lower body mass index, serum total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, and blood pressure; reduced rates of death from ischemic heart disease; and decreased incidence of hypertension, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers than do non vegetarians."
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21139125

    "However, their complete blood count values did not deviate greatly from those found for nonvegetarians, even though some had been vegans or lactovegetarians for over 10 years."
    http://www.karger.com/Article/Abstract/176565

    "The health consequences of lower iron and zinc bioavailability are NOT CLEAR, especially in industrialized countries with abundant, varied food supplies, where nutrition and health research has generally supported recommendations to reduce meat and increase legume and whole-grain consumption."
    "adverse health effects from lower iron and zinc absorption have not been demonstrated with varied vegetarian diets in developed countries, and moderately lower iron stores have even been hypothesized to reduce the risk of chronic diseases"
    http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/78/3/633S.long

    "Conclusions: The proportions of plasma long-chain n−3 fatty acids were not significantly affected by the duration of adherence to a vegetarian or vegan diet. This finding suggests that when animal foods are wholly excluded from the diet, the endogenous production of EPA and DHA results in low but stable plasma concentrations of these fatty acids."
    http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/82/2/327.abstract

    "The ratio of polyunsaturated to saturated fatty acids intake was higher in vegetarians." (Even though I don't understand why you posted this source as scientific evidence, as it's a very niche investigation for only the population of Hong Kong)
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11083485

    "However, in vegetarians rather than in those who consume meat, creatine supplementation resulted in better memory. Irrespective of dietary style, the supplementation of creatine decreased the variability in the responses to a choice reaction-time task."
    http://journals.cambridge.org/action...ne&aid=8207518

    I can also provide a compelling list of equally scientific arguments for why the vegan diet is really rather excellent
    What's my spacing got to do with anything?

    The health consequences of iron and zinc defiency are well known in western medicine

    By the way, you know there's something called the 'placebo effect' right? Which probably explains why you claim to feel better despite the evidence saying you should be at least somewhat nutrient deprived.

    can promote health and lower the risk of major chronic diseases."
    'Can' promote health? So it's not guaranteed too, then?

    reduced rates of death from ischemic heart disease; and decreased incidence of hypertension, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers than do non vegetarians."
    Were all going to die sooner or later anyway; doesn't make much difference what from

    vegetarians rather than in those who consume meat, creatine supplementation resulted in better memory
    The vast majority of people only supplement creatine when building muscle so would not see these benefits on a normal vegetarian diet unless they specifically supplemented creatine

    not significantly affected by the duration of adherence to a vegetarian or vegan
    Tbf, I didn't check; were they allowed to supplement?
    Which kind of begs the question; if you have to supplement your nutrients (this especially holds true for veganism) and synthetic vitamins and minerals can be dangerous, can you truly say that vegetarianism and veganism are natural and good for you?
