No, this isn’t a dead baby joke. If it were, the title might say something like, “What’s the difference between a truck full of bowling balls and a truck full of dead babies?” (You can’t unload the bowling balls with a pitch fork) Sadly, this is no such joke and perfectly good baby child has perished at the hands of unfit vegan parents.
As the Guardian reports, these French vegans decided to only feed their baby with breast milk for the first 11 months of its life. Unfortunately, these were also the only 11 months of that baby’s life, because drinking vegan breast milk resulted in a woefully malnourished baby.
When the parents finally realized something was wrong, they called an ambulance, but it was too late. By the time the ambulance arrived, the baby had already passed on. Lacking in vitamins A and B12 (both of which come from animal products), the baby was susceptible to disease and although the ultimate cause of death was pneumonia, the sad situation never would have occurred if the baby had a proper diet.
The parents could face up to 30 years in prison for “neglect or food deprivation followed by death.” That’s no small sentence, but I can think of a better punishment for them. How about forcing them to eat nothing but those malnourishing vegan foods they seem to love so much and see how long they last? I’d rather spend 30 years in prison than live like that.
