This story caught my eye on CNN -- because of a vegan diet, a six-week old infant starved to death.
There's more to it. The Atlanta Journal Constitution's article describes how the six week-old infant was fed apple juice and soy milk, with limited (if any) breast milk or formula.
Soy milk containers clearly state that they are not a substitute for infant formula. The apple juice acted as a diuretic, which futher dehydrated the baby. The child was born in an apartment bathtub and had never received medical care because the parents were fearful of hospital germs.
At the trial, a vegan diet expert even testified that a vegan diet can be healthy at any age.
A vegan diet didn't kill this child. These were parents who used bad judgement.
