    Yes, in a way.

    To be a "healthy" vegan you need

    1) Access to the foods for your daily nutritional requirements.

    2) Be educated in your daily nutritional requirements and detailed knowledge of what is in what.

    All of which depends on where you live and your social economical status which affects the above. Either people can't access or afford them or you are lucky enough to afford them on a regular basis and are woke about your nutritional requirements.

    yes. many factors may prevent someone from being vegan, even if they want to. there are health issues. it's difficult to get all of your nutrition on a vegan diet without supplements, and those can be expensive. some people may also have medical conditions to where they would still be malnourished even with supplements. soy is also a common allergen and allergies combined with a vegan diet can severely limit your options. cost in general can be an issue too as vegan substitutes may cost more than the animal product they replace. you're also probably going to eat more in general because fruits and veggies digest fairly quickly. and depending on where you live, there may just not be a lot of vegan choices. food deserts are places where it's difficult or impossible to get fresh foods. some neighborhoods in big cities rely on convenience stores because there is no grocery store in the area

    Veganism is not a privilege it is an uneducated bad lifestyle choice made my self righteous people with too much time on their hands to be able to fanny around with grains, pulses seeds and cabbage leaves. They all look ill and under nourished.

    Veganism is Herbivorous. Humans are Omnivores however, so Veganism is badly-inadequate.

    Veganism is nothing more than a fad, like tattoos or wearing your ball cap backwards.

      You clearly have little understanding of this matter, so maybe best not to comment on it. The mind is like a parachute - only works when open!

    Veganism is a state of mind only shared by a small minority.

    Peace.

    No, it's not a privilege. Most people who are vegan are not so by choice. They don't consume animal products because they can't afford them.

      you may be correct, but if those impoverished vegans also knew that they would in general outlive meat-eaters, they might choose to remain vegan.

    Seems Daniel (Daniel Chapter 1, Holy Bible) had no problem with eating pulse and thriving on it. Pulse is vegetables and legumes. A vegan can live quite comfortably on a plant diet. A privilege? Hardly. Many third world countries have populations that live off of grains like rice and tubers like sweet potatoes and taro root.

    Yes it is more expensive to eat vegan. Also in 3rd world countries it is much easier to feed people with chickens than to rely on growing veggies and a successful harvest.

      I live in Europe and eat no meat, my food bill is much lower than it used to be when I expected to eat meat every day.

    Yes. The vegan diet is incomplete, requiring the consumption of manufactured supplements. At the very least for vitamin B12 and DHA. There are millions of people in the world who have no access to manufactured pills/supplements. They would die without them.
