As many as 20% of us could be vitamin b 12 deficient
possibly as many as 40%
of the over 50s, but the problem is how to find out and what to do about it. This video explains the problems very clearly, lists the large variety of symptom from alopecia, though anaemia, digestion and neurological to vision virtigo and weight problems. Some of these can be severe but the problem is diagnosing the deficiency and getting the right treatment.http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BvEizypoyO0
Part of the problem is lack of awareness both from those who might be affected and from those who might treat it. Please sign this petition aimed at educating doctors. Please pass it on to friends and family, the B12 lobby could do with your help with this. The solution to this lack of knowledge lies in the hands of people who use the social Internet. This petition had only gathered 230 signatures in 4 months until a few of us started circulating it in relevant sites... Now two weeks later there are 350 signatures on it. But there are 1000s of people out there to which this is relevant and I think more people should know about this. Please sign this petition and pass it on... That is how we can make a difference...http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/Diagno ... eficiency/
