VEGANS are in JAIL

I am in the process of writing a much more extensive piece on vegetarian/vegan none sense. But this needs to be posted immediately:

Recently, in France, two VEGANS fed their child of 11months nothing but the mothers breast milk. There is nothing wrong with this, unless you are a vegan. Why? Because vegans lack many essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. Lets read the article:

Sergine and Joel Le Moaligou, whose vegan diet forbids consuming any animal product including eggs and cow’s milk, called the emergency services in March 2008 after becoming worried about their baby Louise’s listlessness.

When the ambulance arrived at their home in Saint-Maulvis, a small village 150 kilometres (90 miles) north of Paris, the baby was already dead.

The ambulance workers called the police because the child was pale and thin, weighing 5.7 kilos (12.5 pounds) compared to an average eight kilos for her age.

The baby had only been fed on the milk of her mother, who was aged 37 at the time.

An autopsy showed that Louise was suffering from a vitamin A and B12 deficiency which experts say increases a child’s sensitivity to infection and can be due to an unbalanced diet.

“The problem of vitamin B12 deficiency could be linked to the mother’s diet,” said Anne-Laure Sandretto, deputy prosecutor in the city of Amiens where the trial is taking place.

The couple has been charged with “neglect or food deprivation followed by death” and face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

 

I do not want them to go to Jail. I think the loss of their child should be the slap in the face they need to realize a vegan diet is absurd and does not promote life. This is a sad story that shows how far some people will get wrapped up in their cult-like diets.

This is not the first incident of this. Many Children have been taken from Vegan and Fruitarian parents. If you are not aware: A Fruitarian is someone who only eats raw fruit. In 2001, as reported by the BBC, a couple were almost put in jail because they killed their baby on a fruit only diet. Read an excerpt:

At her post mortem she was found to be markedly thin, dehydrated and to have severe pneumonia – all of which could be linked to malnutrition.

The couple were vegans, but in 1996 switched to a fruitarian diet consisting of raw vegetables fruit and nuts.

After Areni’s birth on 8 September 1999, the family saw a pediatrician who said the baby was not developing properly, and that her mother’s breast milk was nutritionally deficient.

The couple believed all Areni needed was “sunshine and fruit”.

she said babies of that age – and younger – would not have the fuel they need for muscle growth, organ growth and brain development.

They would miss out on proteins, iron, calcium, essential fatty acids and raw fibre, which will all affect their development.

 

Just as you want your Dairy to be Grass-fed (the diet cows are evolved to eat which maintains their health and well being) you should also want your diet to be one that offers your child the best breast milk to help growth and brain development.

What do you think?

    It’s sad. Adults (usually) have the freedom to choose what they eat. Children do not. This story highlights the collateral damage that can occur when people choose to eat such a nutritionally deficient diet. Growing children need protein and fat to develop properly. I wish vegan propagandists would be intellectually honest about this.
