Very little of what you say here is accurate. As for you article you linked, the newest source is from 2005, which the majority of the sources well older than that. And the site isn't exactly all that trustworthy. Not to mention the guy who that article was based from died is 1948 and had a lot of controversy with his ideas.
I'll stick with being a vegan, thanks, and my doctor is completely okay with that and I get all the vitamins I need.

Your opinion, which you are of course, entitled to, but the article is not false. Plants do contain many anti-nutrients as part of their 'protection against being eaten' processes and this is the reason why our ancestors used to ferment and sprout plant foods, to make them easier to digest and have less anti nutrients.

'Antinutrients are found in their highest concentrations in grains, beans, legumes and nuts, but can also be found in leaves, roots and fruits of certain varieties of plants. The major antinutrients found in plant-based foods are phytates, tannins, lectins, oxalates, etc. Antinutrients in vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts are a concern only when a person’s diet is composed exclusively of uncooked plant foods. Oxalate, for instance, prevents calcium from being absorbed in the body by binding with it [13]. Raw spinach, kale, broccoli and soybeans usually contain oxalates [14]. When consuming excessive tannins, which are associated with tea, wine, some fruit, and chocolate, enzymes responsible for protein absorption may be inactivated. Phytates are present in grains, nuts and seeds, while peppers, eggplants, and tomatoes contain lectins. Phytates consumption may lead a lower mineral absorption and lectins are able to cause various reactions to the body [15]. Saponins, on the other hand, have been linked to red blood cells damaging, enzyme inhibition and thyroid function intervention [16]'....

'Vegan diets are often praised for their health benefits. However, there are many nutrients that are only found in animal products. Vegans should carefully observe the levels of intake for the nutrients listed below in order to maintain good health. Vegans with autoimmune, gut or chronic inflammatory issues need to stay far away from a vegan diet even if they supplement with these 20 nutrients'..

So really the plant foods aren't the healthiest foods, like we are led to believe.....
