Since more parents are becoming vegan in Denmark, there is an ongoing debate there about whether or not a vegan diet is suitable for child consumption and chief physician Allan M. Lund at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen says that removing meat, eggs and dairy products from a child’s diet can have severe consequences not only lacking in nutrition, but also resulting in epilepsy and other developmental disorders.
Dr. Lund further warns citing The Voice of Europe who cites TV4:
The problem is that poor food, which for example requires the addition of vitamin B12, can have serious consequences for children. And as a result several children on a vegan diet have been treated at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen.
“Such a diet may involve developing different brain symptoms. With muscle weakness, poor contact and epilepsy. And in the long term mental retardation”, says chief physician Allan M. Lund to TV4.
Proponents of a vegan diet would respond by saying that a proper vegan diet would not result in the consequences Dr. Lund and other health experts point out. This is nothing more than utopian wishful thinking.
For example, to this day, Communists claim that places like the Soviet Union, China or Venezuela did or do not practice true Communism. If we just implement Karl Marx’s ideas the way he truly outlined, they tell us, we would finally get it right. This despite all of the monuments and references to Marx in every Communist nation that has ever dared to try.
Aside from the body count, if it walks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck …. you get the idea. It also doesn’t help when you have famous people, like Kat Von D who have pledged to raise their babies on vegan diets regardless of the consequences.
Not only do animal rights groups and other environmentalist organizations seek to end human food production by curbing farming of produce and cattle or other animals for meat products in order to force grown ups to embrace a vegan diet, they seek to make their children mentally retarded to speed up the demise of the human race. No wonder why environmentalists tend not to have kids.
