Re: Health officials warn of vegan dangers for kids

What do you mean by meat propaganda?
And what source of B12 you're proposing to use? (As far as I know only supliments can help vegans maintain normal levels of B12)

Re: Cross contamination

I would eat it, easpecially if it will state that it's from a vegan owned bakery. But do your research before investing too much into it, try your products first on strangers, and don't limit your sales to vegans. (You can label all your product as cholesterol free for example)

Re: Thinking of going Vegan

First of all - take B12 supliments, secondly - it depends on you but you can try to introduce more foods which will replace eggs, like for example tofu and see how it gows, gradually, or you can one day decide that from today I'm vegan, both ways you'll have to adapt a little and wait for your body ...

Re: Do i need to be fully vegan or can i stray from time to

I think it's better to keep vegan so your organism will adapt, you can try to add to your plate salt or soy sauce to make your dishes tastier (I understand you don't have that no sodium condition).

Re: "The bottom line on eggs"

Actually taking vitamin B12 is better from supplements than from eggs, because those supplements were tested to prove that blood levels of B12 are increased when taking them.
