Although a vegan diet is hailed for its many health benefits, like lowering your chance of getting diabetes or cancer, there may be downsides to ditching animal products completely.

The study also found that vegans have less calcium than people who eat animal products. Some of the other nutrients that vegans lack are vitamin A, vitamin B2, lysine, zinc and omega-3 fatty acids.
