B12 deficient common: Being vegetarian may reduce risk of folate (folic acid) deficiency, as the best sources of folate (folic acid) are dark leafy greens, lentils, beans, broccoli & asparagus.However, fruits & vegies generally don't contain b12, so vegetarians are at risk of B12 deficiency.Eggs and dairy products do have b12, but even vegetarians who eat those average less than half the rda of b12. B12 supplements are thus advised. See comment:. ...Read more

So, perhaps indirectly it may affect growth thru bone development assoc.W/ growth. ...Read more
