Verschiedene Nährstoffe (von Jack Norris)

This article in the English original: Miscellaneous Nutrients / español

Bei manchen Menschen kann es zu speziellen Problemen bei der Absorption oder Verwertung bestimmter Nährstoffe kommen (unabhängig von ihrer Ernährung). Es gibt Nährstoffe, die normalerweise in einer ausgewogenen veganen Ernährung ausreichend vorhanden sind, aber in der Ernährung von einigen Veganern nur in kleineren Mengen vorkommen. Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) und Pyridoxin (Vitamin B6) sind zwei Beispiele hierfür. Während die meisten Veganer kein Problem mit Vitamin B6 haben, zeigten verschiedene Angehörige einer Familie Symptome eines Vitamin-B6-Mangels (1).

Sympathy

Sympathy a poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906)
I know what the caged bird feels, alas!     When the sun is bright on the upland slopes;    When the wind stirs soft through the springing grass,    And the river flows like a stream of glass;     When the first bird sings and the first bud opes,    And the faint perfume from its chalice steals— I know what the caged bird feels!
I know why the caged bird beats his wing     Till its blood is red on the cruel bars;    For he must fly back to his perch and cling    When he fain would be on the bough a-swing;     And a pain still throbs in the old, old scars    And they pulse again with a keener sting— I know why he beats his wing!
I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,     When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore,— When he beats his bars and he would be free; It is not a carol of joy or glee,     But a prayer that he sends from his heart’s deep core,    But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings— I know why the caged bird sings!
