The man at your health food store is wrong.
There are lots and lots of healthy vegetarians, who never have any health problems. I haven't eaten an egg since early 1977, and I'm in radiant health at age 65.
L-Taurine is an amino acid that is used by
many bodily organs, especially the brain and
nervous system. Your daughter can get her
L-Taurine from a first-rate multiple vitamin,
just like I do.
My daily multiple vitamin is Daily Advantage,
made by Mountain Home Nutritionals. The company is owned by Doctor David Williams,
who is one of the very best alternative physicians in the USA. Daily Advantage
consists of a packet of 8 capsules and tablets. Why so many? Because you just can't
fit all the nutrients a body needs in one
big tablet. Daily Advantage contains 65 of
the most-needed nutrients. My old body thrives on it.

The order line is 1-800-888-1415. And, no,
I don't work for them, or anyone else. But
I like to share my trusted resources.
There are other good multiple vitamins out
there. Try to pick one that comes in packets
of capsules and tablets. DON'T take a multiple vitamin that is no bigger than an
aspirin tablet. They're worthless.
Your daughter has made a wise decision, but
sticking to the vegetarian diet won't be easy;
not if she's only 12 years-old, and everyone
else in your home is eating the SAD diet. She
needs to educate herself about real nutrition.
CureZone is a good place to do that.
If she likes to read, I suggest you buy her
a copy of one of these books (or all of them):
1) Living Foods For Optimum Health, by Brian
2) Lessons From The Miracle Doctors, by Doctor
3) Healing With Whole Foods, by Paul Pitchford.
4) Timeless Secrets of Health & Rejuvenation,
by Andreas Moritz
The first book might be best for her right now. Clement is the Director of the famous
Hipocrates Healing Spa in West Palm Beach,
Florida. It's an easy book to read, and is
filled with insights and wisdom -- plus about
30 pages of recipes. Once she reads that,
your daughter will KNOW she's on the right
track. And if you read it, Namaste, you might
decide to get on that track with her!
I wish you and your entire family the very best.
