Vegetarian diet is deficient in Zinc (immune function), Calcium (brittle bones), and Vitamin D

1. Low Vitamin D
Yes, you can get vitamin D from plant sources and supplements. But there's a certain version of vitamin D (D3, that is) that only comes from animals. Sorry. Be sure to bump up your calcium supplementation if you're cutting out meat because low D levels, which is common among vegetarians — and especially vegans — can lead to brittle bones. Low calcium is also a common problem among non-meat-eaters.

2. Not Enough Zinc
Beef and lamb are two of the highest sources of zinc. So it's easy for those who keep these items out of their mouths to not get enough of the mineral that undergirds your immune function.

To each his own. I don't like vegetarians looking down upon meat eaters and vice versa.
