For instance, would you rather die if you had to eat meat for your health and survival?

No, I would rather stay healthy and alive if that scenerio were to be a reality. Thankfully it is not.   

Doctor's know nothing, when it comes to nutrition. I would never put myself before another living being. Not made that way. I would find another source for sure.

well I guess a nutritionist might know something about health.

but that is pretty bold what you say.  are you sure?  what other sources are reliable for sure?  I have heard that the sources of iron from vegetables are unreliable or not strong enough.

I would go to a vegan nutritionist, as they do exist.

I don't propose we eat meat for iron or minerals.  I just thought that some people are especially deficient and end up having to eat meat to save their life.

I eat spinach raw lol, I think a lot of people do. 

Where on earth are you getting your information from? 

nowhere really.  just notions in my head from what i recall hearing.  i am bringing my notions to the discussion board in the spirit of discussion.  i didn't do any heavy research.  just trying to talk it through.

fair do's :D

You are referring to spinach as a non-heme iron.  Due to oxalie acid, which binds with acid and inhibits absorption.  But if you eat spinach with any other of the iron rich enhancers I listed you are good.  A
