Are these facts from my self-proclaimed nutritionist friend true?

Jix Asked: Are these facts from my self-proclaimed nutritionist friend true?

So my friend is my age, 14, and she seems to think she knows everything about the nutritional value of food, and every single freaking fact about becoming vegetarian. She is about as far from vegetarian as you can get, as she eats meat at least two courses a day, maybe more. Anyways, I told her yesterday that I became vegetarian, and all of yesterday and today she's been lecturing me about all the vitamins I'll be missing, and how I'll still be eating meat no matter what (somehow), and how I won't have as much energy blah blah blah. Anyways, there were a few things she said that I'd like to have clarified, as I'm very confused now as to how much of what she told me was true.

First, she said that there are certain fats and vitamins that you CANNOT get anywhere else but in meat, period (she really did put emphasis on the word). Is this true?

Second, she says that animal dna, or some part of an animal, or something like that is sometimes injected into vegetables/fruits to make them last longer. I highly doubt this is true, and my mom also says it isn't true, but you never know.

Third, she basically said that without meat, I won't grow properly and get enough nutrients in general, and I won't end up as healthy when I'm older.

Does she have any idea what she's talking about?
