Tammy D.: Depends on how old the doctor is! Wether or not he (or she) reccomends organ meats to an amnivorous patient, that is. You must also be blind. I saw quite clearly icons for carrots, citrus fruits and green veggies.

Yes, Tammy. I think they've concentrated on the most stereotypical fods. For example, iron occurs is some vegetables, but as the most stereotypical source of iron is meat, they have neglected the other sources, which doesn't, of course, mean that meat is the only source. A well-balanced vegetarian diet is definitely healthy, but the author hasn't taken the time to read up on vegetarian sources of vitamins and minerals.
