I think veganism is a bit extreme but don't take any real issue with adults who choose to follow a vegan diet.

But you CANNOT do that shiat to your kids! Children cannot thrive on a vegan diet. Vegetarian? Probably ok, but not vegan. They simply will not get the nutrients they need to develop properly physically or mentally.

All it says to me when people insist their children follow a vegan diet is that they're fine with harming their own kids as long as no animal is harmed.

The whole breast milk sharing thing from TFA is nothing new, people have been doing stuff like that for years. That being said, if the issue is that vegan moms are unable to produce enough milk for their OWN babies, where exactly do they think this doner milk is going to come from if the only acceptable doners are other vegan moms?

Sounds like someone didn't think their cunning plan all the way through.

/If your ideology is harming your children, it's probably time to reevaluate some things.
//same goes for anti-vaccers who are mindlessly farking with herd immunity and harming OTHER people's children too.
///don't even get me started on the "prayers instead of medicine" crowd.

factoryconnection: tuna fingers: Here's a factoid for you. The great U S of A ranks 34th in the world regarding infant mortality rate.
Cuba does a better job with delivering babies. Very few countries dope up mom/baby like we do, and no other country has C-sections like we do.

Our hospitals are exceedingly poor at supporting women in labor without resorting to drugs.  They push the "lie on the bed on your back" position, the MOST PAINFUL position possible and least supportive for the baby coming out.  They impose artificial time tables.  They create nightmare-scenario warnings about "baby is too big based on the ultrasound" that has a quite-large error band.  They're slaves to due dates, even though they're educated guesses.  They impose needless restrictions on food and drink, so that the mother becomes completely exhausted just due to the tiny chance that she's rushed into surgery, while unconscious, and vomits but noone in the surgical suite notices and she aspirates.  They share nothing about body positioning or sacral pressure to relieve back labor, to adjust baby's position, or to help labor progress.  None of this is hippy-dippy, spirit-crystal nonsense... it mostly comes down to biomechanics.

They do push pitocin, which raises the need for an epidural, which raises the need for surgery.  That's what they do, because their specialties are crisis management, and unfortunately they end up creating crises.  We pay a lot more for all these interventions and they do provide worse outcomes.


This pit-epi cycle is exactly why we went with a midwife.

factoryconnection: "I care enough about my baby to breastfeed it and seek out extra milk when I can't produce, but not so much that I'll accept any from someone that might have eaten some cheese in the last decade."

Is this to make sure that the kids don't get any veterinary antibiotics or hormones?  Because the proteins and fats in breastmilk are generated from broken-down food nutrients in the mom's body... there isn't any "cow" left in the milk.

I guess this makes it 100% clear that her kids are raised vegan as well.  Hmmm...


IT's because if you fed the kids formula or god forbid, milk from a non-vegan, you'd completely destroy the kid's superpowers before they even had a chance to develop.

If you feed your cats raw meat, make sure you include taurine, vitamin E, and B vitamins supplements. Most muscle meat doesn't have enough of those in it to give them full nutrition.

Vegans keep animal slaves?  I think not.  Sometimes they ARE "animal parents" of domesticated animals- you know, just to keep them out of non "no-kill" shelters, and as a parent they'd prefer their four legged offspring adopt thier lifestyle choice, but forcibly imposing it on them would violate their principles  (besides kitties are obligate carnivores-no real way around that)

YixilTesiphon: the money is in the banana stand: YixilTesiphon: legion_of_doo: You've got Vegans, immunization conspiracists, all sorts of highly educated wackos here.

We're expecting in November and the thing I am most worried about is immunization nutters transmitting disease to my child. SCIENCE IS REAL. Damn.

Luckily I don't think there are too many of those in Pennsylvania, but still.

Can't you not attend school without immunization records? Isn't that part of the enrollment process?

My understanding is that schools aren't very good about enforcing that. (No idea, this will be my first.) My concern is that some dumbass's baby will get a disease from their older sibling while my baby hasn't been vaccinated yet (since they can't handle all vaccinations immediately), and then the daycare will get infected.


Waivers are available for religious, health, and in some jurisdictions, personal reasons.  That's freedom.  Plus, some people can't handle the stuff in vaccines--people allergic to eggs, for example.  I have a friend with an Antimony sensitivity and she can't even take injections with most metal needles or she'll go into life-threatening shock.  There are all kinds of bodies out there, and public school has to be available to nearly everyone or it's not really public.

True as far as it goes, but misleading in context. It's true that in aggregate, our numbers look quite bad. In fact, by current 2013 estimates, it's actually worse than you say; we're more like 50th.

But as with many statistics, it turns out that economic disparities have a severe impact on the aggregates. Restrict yourself to the folks with the "best" access to care and our numbers become some of the best in the world. I put "best" in quotes because while I'd call it the best access to care, I'm not so sure you would: these are the people getting all those elective C-sections and anesthetics you so deplore.

There is, of course, a dark side to that. If we're getting those good numbers on one side, then someone's got to be getting really bad numbers to drag the aggregate down. And, in fact, someone is: the groups with less access to medical care. The ones who really go for the alternatives, not because they're "more natural," but because they're seen as cheaper than the hospital. And this is what happens.

namegoeshere: There have been breast milk banks for a long time now. Some medically fragile babies can not tolerate formula, and must drink breast milk. If Mom can't produce enough, they're screwed.

The only difference here is the whole vegan thing. And the fact that (I'm not 100% sure on this one, but I believe) babies who can drink formula but whose parents choose not to feed it to them would not have access to the limited supply of donated breast milk in the established breast milk bank. Although I'm sure there are women who will sell their milk to whomever will pay.

Thing is, being unable to produce enough milk is supposed to be the exception to the rule.

Wangiss: They often have their babies at home with the assistance of crunchy-granola doulas.


Do women do home births without nurse midwives?  The doula may be there but the CNM is an accredited, masters-level medical practitioner.  I've seen lots of home birth videos and read the stories but they all had CNMs in attendance.

tuna fingers: This pit-epi cycle is exactly why we went with a midwife.


My wife's first delivery was as bumpy as can be without surgery being involved, for a variety of reasons including her dural sac not being particularly accepting of an epidural administration.  That made the pitocin contractions that much worse.

She went natural, using Hypnobabies with our second, at a hospital, and it was basically painless except when the admitting nurse made her lie on her back for monitoring.  We went with the midwife birth center with #3 because the hospital was more of an encumbrance and expense with a low-risk, natural birth than anything.  Plus they had this dedicated birthing pool and a REAL BED to sleep in afterward.

Even that midwife couldn't compute how calm the wife was when she was in transition and pushing.  She wanted to send us home even though the baby was coming.

Reminds me of a punchline for a joke.  I forget the full flow of the joke narrative but it essentially had to do with Indian women competing to have the strongest son with the chief by conceiving on rugs made of animal hides.  Bear was the best because, "The son of the squa on the one hide is equal to the sons of the squas on the other two hides."

I'm gonna have to try and track that one down - I love stories with a PUNch line. Here are a few of my favorites:

/We snuck them cans of Alpo or Pedigree at every opportunity.

Wow, I was thinking of switching my cat over to raw food for the nutrition, but something more along the lines of meats, not the ingredients for my salad.


My dog gets as much raw meat as I can send her way. Also, uncooked bones and the tough bits from livers that I prepare for myself. She loves it, but she also gets some grain-free dry food to round it out.
If you want to switch to a complete raw diet for your cat, I suggest lots of organs and bones (sardines can be a good source of that). They're obligate carnivores, so they eat the whole animal to get their nutrition.

Magorn: Attention Vegan Women: producing breat milk is one of the basic functions of a female human body. when a woman's body stops producing enough of it, it is a clear sign something is VERY VERY wrong. Usually only happens when the woman is STARVING to death.

Some women just don't make milk.  It doesn't matter what their diet is.  My ex produced plenty.  One of her friends (on an omnivore diet) couldn't make a drop, even with the industrial pump they have at the hospital.


Brittabot: But you CANNOT do that shiat to your kids! Children cannot thrive on a vegan diet. Vegetarian? Probably ok, but not vegan. They simply will not get the nutrients they need to develop properly physically or mentally.

What nutrients would they be missing?  My kids have been in the 99th percentile for mental and physical development since they were born.  Based on what you're posting, my nine-year-old can read better than you.


Vitamin B-12, vitamin-A, vitamin-D, zinc, calcium. Without some sort of supplements, a vegan diet doesn't supply enough for a growing baby/child.

Here's the thing:

If you choose to believe in something...anything...that requires you to behave a certain way, you *will* need moral support to *do* the right thing.

Vegans need to be a part of a community because the behavior they choose IS NOT NATURAL. Primates are omnivorous. As homo sapiens, we just happen to be wise enough to make decisions and plan for the future.

Any group which chooses to believe their behavior is RIGHT will NECESSARILY believe that the behavior of others is WRONG. But vegans are choosing to act against their biology. This causes lots of problems. Some people have the will to overcome, but that's not always a good thing as is evidenced here.
