Extremes are dangerous in everything...be it religion, politics, nationalism, or diets. When it comes to inflicting these extreme food ideas on infants it becomes not just dangerous but criminal. My mother who lived to her mid nineties had a simple philosophy....moderation in all things. She applied this pretty universally to every activity, but especially to food and drink.. She never cut anything out, but enjoyed meat ....and alcohol, in moderation. This is a philosophy I have now adopted, although I will admit in my younger days I was more prone to excess in both!
They should have been jailed much longer for child abuse and endangerment that child is permanently. If you are not well educated in how to go meatless children die or end up permanently damaged. As a adult go ahead and kill yourself but leave kids alone. You need knowledge to be vegan unless you grew up that way, Balancing amino acids to get complete proteins it's not easy unless you grew up doing that
These parents were child abusers. They got away with it for so long because they were also anti-vaxxers and science-deniers, this kid never saw a doctor. Their other malnourished (unlike what this article implies) kids were also taken away from them. People manage to believe all sorts of silly things, often these beliefs are harmless, but when children are involved, this sort of horror can happen. Made me think of this: [en.wikipedia.org]
That headline is misleading. There around 500M Buddhists, many among them vegan, who live long healthy lives. Our being omnivorous means we may eat meat, not that we must. Moreover, even herbivores sometimes eat meat, and carnivorous sometimes eat vegetables.
I agree, I fear that there will be a lot of malnourished children in the future because of the current fad for veganism. We all need a balanced diet, especially children and it’s a parent’s duty to provide one until they are old enough to decide for themselves whether to become vegan.
