Yeah, so I have been a vegetarian for about 2 years. I feel weak as hell, and I heard that vegetarians have smaller brains than meat eaters. I eat cereal, but someone said that soy milk and soy products can cause cancer? What the hell? What am I supposed to do now? Eat cereal with water? I am thinking about eating eggs again. Technically, I will still be a vegetarian, right? Also, I have noticed that I have wrinkles around my forhead. I am only 22. Someone said that fish helps people look young or somethin like that. I was also told that I need Vitamin B. What kind of foods have Vitamin B? Should I start eating fish again?<br><br><br><br>

I've heard various things about soy and I'm not too sure what to make of them at the moment...I think I'm going to search through some scientific journals sites and see for myself what the recent research really does say. Personally, I don't eat a great deal of soy anyway.<br><br><br><br>
But yes, you can eat eggs and be vegetarian. There's three types of vegetarian...ovo-vegetarian (eats eggs, no dairy and no meat), lacto-vegetarian (eats dairy, no eggs and no meat) and lacto-ovo-vegetarian (eats dairy and eggs but no meat). All of these three types fit under the umbrella term vegetarian.<br><br><br><br>
There are several types of vitamin B.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Vitamin B1 (thiamin) - "Thiamin is found in whole grains, nuts and meat, especially pork. In the UK, white and brown flour and many breakfast cereals are fortified with thiamin."<br><br><br><br>
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) - "Major dietary sources of riboflavin are milks, eggs, fortified breakfast cereals, liver and green vegetables."<br><br><br><br>
Vitamin B6 - "Vitamin B6 is found in a variety of foods: beef, fish and poultry are rich sources. It also occurs in eggs, whole-grains and some vegetables."<br><br><br><br>
Vitamin B12 - "Dietary intake is exclusively from animal sources, e.g. milk, meat and eggs (and fortified foods). Although some algae and bacteria can make vitamin B12, it is probably not in a form that can be used by the body. Fortified breakfast cereals can be a useful source of this vitamin."</div>

Vitamin B12 tends to be the tough one for vegetarians and vegans. Though if you were to go back to eating eggs then it may be easier for you to get this vitamin. There are also vitamin supplements and fortified foods (in the UK breakfast cereals tend to be fortified with B-vits and iron).

I know a lot of weaklings with small brains and wrinkles. I think you'll survive, even with all three qualities.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
If you want to avoid soy, there are plenty of other options. Rice milk, almond milk, oat milk, hazelnut milk, etc. are all options.
