Vegan diet for mom kills 11-month-old breastfeed baby
A vegan mother and father were up before a court Tuesday in Amiens, in northern France, accused of "neglect or food deprivation" leading to the death of their 11-month-old baby daughter.The article here (in French) discusses more about the vitamin deficiencies in the mother's breast milk because of her Vegan diet.
Sergine and Joel Le Moaligou only fed their tiny daughter, Louise, with the 37-year-old mother's milk at their home in Saint-Maulvis, a small village 90 miles north of Paris. She died in March 2008, weighing just under 13 pounds and suffering from pneumonia and a vitamin deficiency. A doctor called to the family's rundown house refused to issue a burial permit.
Louise's parents became vegans after watching a television program about how cattle were slaughtered for food. . . .
