Our dear Ali Baba was told in tablighee web sites that if kuffar tell you that eating the barbaric halal meat is not good for you then tell them that vegetarians develop vitamin B1 or Thiamine deficiency but what tablighees do not realize is that we kuffar do our home work and expose their lies

As for your vegetarians...I hope you realize that cardiovascular disease takes DECADES to manifest itself, whereas things like Thiamine deficiency

Well let us see where one would find thiamine

Where do we find Thiamine?

Sunflower seeds, peanuts, wheat bran, seafood, beans all contain good amounts of thiamin.

Thiamine is found in both plants and animals and plays a crucial role in certain metabolic reactions, particularly, as mentioned, the conversion of carbohydrates (starches) into energy. For example, thiamine is essential during exercise, when energy expenditure is high.

This means that you can find it in nuts and plants and beans! Now how come you did not know that our dear Ali Baba?

Oh there is more

Causes of Thiamin deficiency

Thiamin deficiency may result from inadequate thiamin intake, an increased requirement for thiamin, excessive loss of thiamin from the body, consumption of anti-thiamin factors in food, or a combination of factors.
Thiamine deficiency is rare, but tends to occur in people who get most of their calories from sugar or alcohol. Individuals with thiamine deficiency have difficulty digesting carbohydrates. As a result, a substance called pyruvic acid builds up in the bloodstream, causing a loss of mental alertness, difficulty breathing, and heart damage. In general, thiamine supplements are primarily used to treat this deficiency known as beriberi.
People with beriberi have difficulty standing, walking, and controlling their muscles. This disease was common in the 1800s in Southeast Asian countries when people started eating white "polished" rice instead of brown rice. Removing the outer husks of rice removes most of the thiamine. It's very easy to get enough thiamine in the diet these days because it's added to processed grains. However, people who abuse alcohol or have a very poor diet may suffer from a Thiamine deficiency.

I do not see anything about your bogus claim that vegetarian diet can lead to thiamine deficiency that can kill them "lickety split" as you claimed right?

It seems that in the case of India where you come from this was because the thiamine present in rice is removed to have white instead of brown rice!

Now you tell us why do you now do your home work before you post your drivel?
