Our dear Ali Baba who belongs to the ahmadiyya sect whose followers are regarded by Sunni Muslims as kuffar and he is really trying to find a good reason for the barbaric halal slaughter and when nothing worked he told us that he knows many Hindus that are vegetarians and they had coronary bypass surgery and when I proved to him that for reasons unexplained it seems that heart disease is very common in India among all groups and is independent of the diet consumed then he told us that Thiamine deficiency kills vegetarians and this was also debunked now he tells us that because Allah tells his followers to subject cows and lamb to this barbaric halal slaughter therefore Allah is helping Muslims so no Muslim can get vitamin B12 deficiency and this is what he wrote

B12 deficiency will kill you lickidy split.

The problem with this poor logic is

1. This should not be a problem in those vegetarians that are Pesco-ovo-lacto or those that consume eggs, fish and milk and it would be a problem only for strict vegans but the solution here is very easy: Take supplemental vitmain B12 it is cheap and available and effective

2. It seems that even in vegans vitamin B12 deficiency is very rare and close to 1 in one million vegans because human bodies can utilize very tiny amounts of B12 and here is a reference

3. And as per our dear Ali Baba's poor logic if Allah helps indeed by telling his followers to eat halal meat so they do not die from vitamin B12 deficiency then this means that in the failed state of Pakistan we should not see any cases of vitmain B12 deficiency after all Allah says that you can eat halal meat and this would prevent vitamin B12 deficiency but it seems that vitmain B12 deficiency is a serious problem in the failed state of Pakistan as was found in a study from the Agha Khan University in Karachi and here is the reference

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20929023

So it sees that your Allah was not able to prevent his followers from developing vitamin B12 deficiency and what a disaster

4. If we examine the consumption of meat in Pakistan per capita it is only 12kilos per year v.124kilos in the US and here is the reference

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/datablog/2009/sep/02/meat-consumption-per-capita-climate-change

Which means that instead of Allah revealing an aya that says that poor people should take one vitamin B12 pill a day his solution is that they should eat halal meat but the problem is it is too expensive and this is why the consumption of meat is very low in Pakistan and this is why you have the epidemic of vitamin B12 deficiency in the failed state of Pakistan

So you see our dear Ali Baba your Allah is like Marie Antoinette who told her people that were asking for bread to eat cake instead of bread!

Now you tell me why do you not do your home work first before you post ...
