NYT Op-Ed Against Vegan Kids
The NYT ran an op-ed called “Death by Veganism.” Some “high”lights:
* “You cannot create and nourish a robust baby merely on foods from plants.”
* “There are no vegan societies for a simple reason: a vegan diet is not adequate in the long run.”
* “Children fed only plants will not get the precious things they need to live and grow.”
FWIW, our kids are vegetarian, not vegan, and they do consume a fair amount of dairy (and some egg) in their normal diet. I’d love to see some scientific critique of this article though; it seems more troll-y and designed to spur sales of the author’s book than a rigorous argument.
UPDATE: Another doctor blasts the editorial’s author.
