Zinc intake and status in Australian vegetarians
TLDR
There was a significant correlation between serum Zn concentration and dietary Zn density in vegetarians, especially females (P < 0·001), but not in omnivores, and ovolactovegetarians did not have a significantly greater risk of low Zn status than omnivore.
The energy and nutrient intakes of different types of vegetarian: a case for supplements?
TLDR
It is recommended that ‘new’ vegetarians and vegans should use appropriate dietary supplements and the impact of low I intakes should be further studied, and it is recommended the most involved vegetarians were the least involved in a ‘vegetarian lifestyle’.

Nutrient intake and vitamin status of healthy French vegetarians and nonvegetarians.
TLDR
Vegetarians did not have a higher risk rate for a biochemical vitamin deficiency of thiamin, riboflavin, folates, and vitamins B-6, C, A, and E than the nonvegetarians.

TLDR
Although serum ferritin levels were inferior (particularly in vegetarians under 3 years old), the lower intakes of fat, cholesterol and sodium, and higher antioxidant vitamin intakes and status indices were potentially beneficial.

Dietary intake and biochemical, hematologic, and immune status of vegans compared with nonvegetarians.
TLDR
V Vegans had significantly lower leukocyte, lymphocyte, and platelet counts and lower concentrations of complement factor 3 and blood urea nitrogen but higher serum albumin concentrations, and did not differ from nonvegetarians in functional immunocompetence.

TLDR
It was shown that consumption of dairy foods and eggs, but not body weight, was associated with the lipoprotein and cholesterol findings, and similar differences in lipid levels were found between subgroups of 42 vegetarians and controls with identical mean weights.

TLDR
Rank of blood pressure had no influence on the measurements for zinc or copper, although within blood pressure ranks the men again had a higher hair zinc concentration than the women, and analysis of Tokelauan foods showed that most contained very low concentrations of zinc anc alsoLow concentrations of copper.

TLDR
Hair copper in 500 day-old adult rats was found to correlate directly with copper in whole liver and the subcellular liver nuclear, and cytosol fractions, and an inverse correlation was found between copper in liver microsomes and plasma cholesterol.

TLDR
Serum zinc concentrations were determined repeatedly in 99 healthy young men by a simple automated atomic absorption spectrophotometric method, finding that 95% of values from a given individual were within 18 μ g.
