Here are the results of some research in the USDA nutrient database Rel. 13:

Spagetti, unenriched contains 0.79 g of tyrosine/100 Cal, pretzels, hard, plain 0,63 g/100 Cal., and lamb, ground, raw 0,43 g/100 Cal. Convince the school-nurse with these facts or better the dean!

If I'm not answering quickly enough - leave a note on Twitter for @Rheumatologe

What age group is this pamphlet written for? Obviously not high school students or lower. Is the author trying to win over readers by using confusing arguments and medical jargon? "You're just too dumb to understand, trust me, I'm a nurse."



I'm not aware of any B12 deficiency in vegETARIAN diets. The vegetarians I know eat loads of animal products.

Thanks.



Grades are due this week, so I'm putting my letter off to this coming weekend --too much paperwork! And I've shown a bunch of coworkers at this point... I'm not the only one who's livid.

I'm surprised it's so blatantly biased and based only upon one person's opinion.

Most school "nurses" aren't nurses at all and need few qualifications other than being able to call a kids parents so they can pick the kid up from school.



Mskedi- good idea in providing info from the ADA. I would also look at the other materials they have out. Who knows, maybe there is other fishy stuff in there, too.

Tyrosine is not an essential amino acid because it can be synthesized by the body from Phenylalanine, which is an essential amino acid. Phenylalanine can be found in just about any vegetable, nuts and legumes. Only people who suffer from phenylketonuria would have problems synthesizing tyrosine from phenylalanine due to a deficiency in the enzyme that catalyzes this reaction. These people would have to limit their phenylalanine intake while increasing their tyrosine intake.



Really there are only 6 essential amino acids that the body cannot synthesize but these AAs can easily be found in many vegetable and legume sources.



I have a degree in Biochemistry and like to think that I know a bit about what the body does and doesn't need from outside sources. It really bothers me to see things like this flyer that completely give the general public wrong information only to serve that person's hidden agenda.
