The author identifies the vegan diet is a strict vegetarian diet and therefore likely to be deficient in vitamins D and B12. A more dangerous diet, is the zen macrobiotic diet. Its adherents progress through ten stages of increasing dietary restriction until they are taking only cereals.
Severe nutritional deficiencies may result. A zen macrobiotic infant food called kokoh has been associated with severe malnutrition in infants.
