Here's what I was getting at:
The problem with going beyond just the parts relating to the actual elements pertaining to webcomic composition is that you end up entering the realm of science textbooks both in content and in the potential size of your entry, in theory. Things can get very complex very quickly which is why I tried to keep things as stripped back as possible with OJST and aimed for it to just be a jumping off point for people to then go find their own sources. At least that's what I was trying to do. I'd also discussed a similar approach with izzus for this one:
The Medical Journal of Australia is a peer-reviewed medical journal. It is the official journal of the Australian Medical Association, published by the Australasian Medical Publishing Company (applies to much more than just science, of course).https://www.mja.com.au/open/2012/1/2/vitamin-b12-and-vegetarian-dietshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Medical_Journal_of_Australia
- Soy doesn't increase estrogen.
- Veganism isn't any more restricting than a meat eater's diet.
- There is pus in milk.
- Meat eaters are like Hitler.
One example to start with, I didn't want him to take out the section on Vitamin B12. I still think that should go in. However, since people do literally write big textbooks just on this one subject, all I was suggesting was saying something along the lines of:
"A key difference between just being a vegetarian and a vegan is over what is available for sources of Vitamin B12."
It can be difficult to find reliable sources on the subject. So look closely at your sources.
This one is from a reputable medical journal as opposed to the multitude of other ones you have to wade to to get to it after a Google search. So, the key lesson here more than even the content is check your sources and know what to look for which is what I want to be the takeaway here.
Otherwise, you could potentially end up being dragged into discussions outside the remit of webcomics. So that's why whenever we go beyond just webcomics to intersecting with, well in this case science, I try to aim for just pointing people in what I hope is the right direction to start looking and then leave it to them.
"Pus in milk" which I'll get to next post. I would advise switching to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pasteurization
because that's much wider scope. There's a lot of things in milk you really don't want to encounter before that process, for starters.
