last update: 2018 10 15nutrients is NOT guaranteed despite enough food:
Enough of each of the 13 vitamins.
Vitamin B12 is not contained in most plants.
Enough of each of the 2 essential fatty acids.
Namely alpha-Linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid) and linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid).
AFAIK linseed oil (flaxseed oil) is a good provider of essential fatty acids but maybe not a sufficient provider of conditionally essential fatty acids like e.g. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) or DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
IMO do not eat linseed oil at night because it could keep you awake.
- Enough of each required mineral.
Enough dietary fibers.
Foods of animal origin do NOT contain dietary fibre.

Much can deteriorate much before your die.
Survival does not mean getting enough of each required nutrient.
Lack of required nutrients has effects like fatigue and mental disorders and long term effects like accelerated aging and dementia and cancer and other diseases.

The new recommendations of daily intake:
- This could lead to a recommendation of 1000 IU for children <1 year on enriched formula and 1500 IU for breastfed children older than 6 months, 3000 IU for children >1 year of age, and around 8000 IU for young adults and thereafter. Actions are urgently needed to protect the global population from vitamin D deficiency.
- Since 10 000 IU/d is needed to achieve 100 nmol/L , except for individuals with vitamin D hypersensitivity, and since there is no evidence of adverse effects associated with serum 25(OH)D levels <140 nmol/L, leaving a considerable margin of safety for efforts to raise the population-wide concentration to around 100 nmol/L, the doses we propose could be used to reach the level of 75 nmol/L or preferably 100 nmol/L. Of course, these recommended doses can be individualized based on dietary and sun exposure habits and the latitude of the country, and they can also be adjusted according to body mass index, age, and skin color, with obese, elderly, and dark-skinned people needing higher doses.
My body reacts badly (belly ache, mouth ulcer) to products with mint or chlorophyll taste although I like the taste.

Maybe it is a placebo effect.
Maybe it is related to bad digestion and absorption of certain nutrients in the gut.
Maybe it is related to certain gut bacteria.
Maybe it is related to a bad reaction to some molecules frequent in plants or in the digestion process of plants.
Maybe the chemicals or bacteria in meat in the USA and Canada have some beneficial effects on some persons.
