As we’ve seen, raising children as vegans isn’t just moonbatty; it’s unethical. More evidence:
A girl of 12 brought up by her parents on a strict vegan diet has been admitted to hospital with a degenerative bone condition said to have left her with the spine of an 80-year-old.
Doctors are under pressure to report the couple, from Glasgow, to police and social workers amid concerns her health and welfare may have been neglected in pursuit of their beliefs.
The youngster, fed on a strict meat- and dairy-free diet from birth, is being treated at the city’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children. She is said to have a severe form of rickets and to have suffered a number of fractured bones. The condition is caused by a lack of vitamin D, which is needed to absorb calcium and is found in liver, oily fish and dairy produce.
The parents are “well-known figures in Glasgow’s vegan community.” As nutrition and dietetics professor Tom Sanders of King’s College London comments:
Some of them think we’re still monkeys that can live on fruit and nuts.
But it may take a few generations, or should I say degenerations, before moonbats can actually subsist as the lower primates they emulate.
At least the poor kid didn’t die of malnutrition.
