Major point that you seem to forget is that someone who was climbing Everest would have blood tests, medical and dieticians advice and would know that their iron levels were OK and if not take supplements.


Major point you seem to be unaware of is that medical standards typically come down to the expedition operators, and ultimately that's governed by their desire to get paying customers up the slope. That, and the individuals' willingness to actually listen to advice if given.


In that case they died from something other than being a vegetarian.
