If you’d like to hear an interview with me on Our Hen House about the ex-vegan phenomena, please click here.
I would like to thank Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan for having me on to discuss this important topic that is not often addressed by vegan advocates.

I really enjoyed your interview. I hadn’t realized that taurine wasn’t an amino acid. I definitely have started to pay more attention to iodine since realizing that I wasn’t getting much from my foods.
I recently met a woman who’s been vegan for 2 years now and hasn’t been taking B12! I got her to start taking it the next week and I also recommended your book to her and she’s already read it and is making changes to her diet now. I am very grateful to you and Ginny’s advocacy and information because it makes a real difference.
My point about taurine was that it isn’t a protein-building amino acid, which Jasmine seemed to think it was (and understandably so – it’s a reasonable thing to assume). So, you can’t get it from eating protein.
Technically, taurine is an amino sulfonic acid but I’m not even so sure that you couldn’t legitimately call it an “amino acid”, it’s just not an amino acid in the sense that the protein-building amino acids are amino acids.
