YET ANOTHER SET OF OMNIVORE PARENTS GUILTY OF STARVING THEIR CHILDREN!

Omnivore diet (along with keeping cats) is child abuse! Let’s go get ’em, angry mob!

If these subject parents were vegans, “THE vegan diet” would have been blamed, but they’re meat eaters, so bad parenting is pointed at. Nice how that works, isn’t it? Check out the fridge contents at 0:56 in the below article’s video…chicken packages. Casserole and roasting pots on the counters, commonly used for meat dishes. Bottle of steak sauce in the mess too, along with plenty of liquor bottles mentioned. Five starving children in a meat-eating household. Just imagine the field day everyone would be having if those parents had instead been uncommonly ill-informed, nutty “vegans.”

(Poor kid, imagine, trying to sell his toy to get a bit to eat, and four more hungry kids at home. Poor cats too. I hope all are safe now.)

Consider how about 15 to 16 million children (infancy to age 18) in the USA live in households where they are unable to have enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life. Realize that the vast majority (if not all) of those households rely on (often government supplied “free” with food stamps) meat/dairy/eggs as their main calorie sources. It is neglect and abuse causing these children suffering and ill health…inherent in that are bad food choices, lack of fresh produce, reliance on packaged junk and animal products and a general total lack of care, along with poverty which should preclude people from bringing children into the world to depend on them. That total lack of care was exemplified in these parents’ evidently caring more for their drunkenness than their children. 

So when a child neglect/malnourishment case occasionally occurs with ill-equipped vegan parents, please put 2 + 2 together and see these “vegan malnutrition/child abuse” stories as what they are. They’re hyped up garbage dug up by meat interests and spread by a beholden and unscrupulous media, and gobbled up and hatefully enjoyed by the public, so eager for legitimate sounding excuses to continue supporting animal abuse and killing. “It’s vegans we should hate, not our own culpability!”

FarmSanctuaryGo vegan. Stay vegan. Be healthy. Be impervious to the vicious and relentless, hugely financed campaign against veganism. And forge ahead. We are the animals’ only hope and we must grow and grow and succeed.

Yep, another “malnourished vegan baby” story hit the news like a stink bomb recently…

…This time from Italy, and it was triumphantly grabbed onto by “news” outlets and run with, vehemently. Again painting veganism as fraught with terrifying risks, a godawful lifestyle…especially terrible for children and babies! I won’t plug the story here by delving into it or with links…people can find that oh-so-easily on their own. The powers that be want you to find it.

I only want people to consider this:

Thousands and thousands of vegan parents give birth to and raise perfectly healthy vegan children. Those kids have far fewer illnesses than their peers and are very rarely obese; they’re active, bright, nicely behaved, full of character, all in all, prime examples of how to parent and raise healthy kids (see above links). And a large number of “omnivorous” kids raised on pancakes, sausages, bacon, cheese and other junk suffer malnourishment every day, even suffering or dying from heart disease and various cancers at young ages. And no one wants to link any of that to all that bacon and ice-cream. But feed kids vegetables and fruits minus the hot dogs, and look out, you’re headed for tragedy!

People basically believe what they want to believe, with truth and facts having no bearing on any of it. Note how we have no news pinheads trumpeting about the dangers of animal based diets for children. After all, media sponsors are animal agriculture and pharmaceutical industries. So, “meat/milk/eggs are wholesome health-giving foods fed to their children by smart and loving parents!” And don’t you DARE even think otherwise!

16Now, let there be some out-there kooks or irresponsible orthorexic or anorexic “vegan” parents that unintentionally starve their babies or children and end up in trouble and having their kids taken away, and you’ve got a huge news story on your hands. Something that will be gleefully and hatefully spread like wildfire, full of talk about vegan idiots and child abusers who’ve no right to even exist in this world. A huge load of vileness which the public is all too eager to join in on in an ugly attempt to justify their continuing to support animal “growing,” abuse, torture, and slaughter…being the “necessary-evils” believing animal lovers they are.

Note: I put “vegan” in quotes up there because some people who apparently know the full story in the news recently wrote that it’s not true that this baby was vegan, and that the whole story has been debunked (see youtube comment screenshots below). Regardless of what’s actually the case, however, the damage has been done. People so need to have “reasons” to condemn animal-free diets/lifestyles, so they will have those reasons, come hell or high water!screenshot 2screenshot 1

A Comparative Case in Point…

Vaccines GOOD – Veganism BAD!

Consider how those same masses…when hearing parent after parent after parent tell of their cases of serious, life-changing, debilitating, even fatal VACCINE damage in their kids…stand firmly with the “authorities” in disbelieving them, hating them, condemning them as unfit parents. Basically raging against them as societal scourges who should be rounded up, put in camps and forcefully vaccinated with every shot out there, and their kids confiscated by the government and of course vaccinated up the wazoo as well.

So here we have human delusional dementia exemplified:

Flimsy cases of “vegan malnutrition” are instantly believed by the public, who enthusiastically swallow it all, hook, line and sinker. Suddenly anecdotal “evidence” becomes concrete as can be and the many other instances proving the opposite…that vegan kids are healthier than others…are to be ignored as more of those heinous vegan LIES.

While case after case after case of actual devastating vaccine damage reported by all sorts of sensible, educated parents, as well as certain more honest and therefore despised doctors, is roundly dismissed as anecdotal and therefore to be ridiculed as trendy hysteria spread by irresponsible luddites under the undue influence of certain despised celebrities. Tales of unvaccinated kids being far healthier than their peers and of those vaccinated peers actually spreading diseases which they’re vaccinated against are all filthy LIES!

To clarify (or muddy up) the point even further…

You are to believe unquestioningly that veganism is dangerous and a form of child abuse because of the entirely anecdotal “evidence” of occasional dimwits who have eating disorders and thereby starve their babies. And you are to hatefully dismiss the myriad of evidence to the contrary provided by smart vegan parents with very healthy kids from conception onward. You are to continue to believe all that even when it turns out the malnourished child was not vegan. Why? Just because and how dare you ask! And just forget about all those omnivore kids who are sick and malnourished, to the tune of 62.8 million kids worldwide who suffer from acute malnutrition today. While…

You are to believe unquestioningly that vaccines are safe/effective and therefore excellent childcare, despite many parents’ accounts of life-ruining damage manifesting immediately (or weeks/months later) following vaccines. Anecdotal is bad, bad evidence, don’t you know? Even when hundreds and hundreds report the same types of damage. And all those accounts of parents who say their kids are all vaccinated up and healthy as heck are to be believed 100%…how could anyone doubt a smart and aggressive parent’s word?! The industry has done studies, after all, and shown themselves as heroes. To doubt is to sin!

In a Nutshell

Rare, questionable anecdotal evidence of vegan baby starvation, even when contradicted by real life and scientific evidence, is to be believed in alliance with the powers that be…in this case, animal agriculture.

While copious, demonstrative anecdotal evidence from parents with vaccine-damaged kids, when contradicted only by vested-interest evidence, is to be roundly rejected in alliance with the powers that be…in this case, the pharmaceutical/vaccine industry.

Convenient, how that all works out, ain’t it? And the public eagerly gobbles it all up and becomes ever more gleeful with hatred against “bad parents” of both the vegan and anti-vax type. Simply wonderful. I think I’ll reconsider being a misanthrope. Turn in my card. Hah.

Prince & Mayte and the Sad Loss of Their Vegan Babies

[Above video added 2/15/17…another great one…previous video was deleted from youtube.]

As virtually everyone knows by now, Prince passed away on April 21, 2016. I liked him, enjoyed certain of his tunes a lot, and especially liked his performances. My elderly mom even liked him, loved watching him on stage on tv. He was from Minneapolis, same as her, so perhaps a bit of hometown prejudice there? 😇

Rest in Peace, Prince Rogers Nelson

On to another sad matter…

Prince’s ex-wife, Mayte Garcia, had two pregnancies with Prince in the 1990s; one was lost to miscarriage and one suffered from Pfeiffer syndrome, an inherited genetic disorder where the skull and other bones fail to grow normally and cause malformations. That baby survived only for a short time, even though Pfeiffer syndrome isn’t considered fatal.

Apparently Mayte suspected that the lack of animal products in their diet contributed to her babies’ problems and deaths. And that is very likely totally false. Even now, her only child, a daughter she is raising with much love and care, was adopted, not given birth to by her. Not everyone has an easy time reproducing. And adoption is a really good thing. I believe the couple’s problem was also with Prince and I suspect that it was genetic or in some way nothing he could help…nothing to be blamed on anyone or any diet.

Prince was another “celebrity vegan” we come to find out actually wasn’t vegan for that long, only for a period somewhere from the mid-1990s to perhaps 2005 or so (but who really knows?), even though he did support veganism and had compassion for animals.

He does seem to have been a bit preoccupied with thinness (for Mayte too) and may have been in the habit of working very hard to stay lean and not eating much, which will cause anyone problems, not just vegans.

So any health problems he developed, like damaged hips, possibly leading to his pain pill addiction and early death, most likely stem from an eating disorder, among other things like performing in severe shoes…not from his past years of eating no animal products.

Plenty of vegans are healthy, strong, have healthy pregnancies and radiant children, and live good long lives. I believe it’s a matter of eating enough, healthy lifestyle practices, and having no genetic or other predisposing problems.

There’s a rumor floating around that Prince had HIV since the 1980s, but in my view such rumors aren’t worth a damn.

Prince was epileptic as a child, which I only recently learned. He may have also had some problem involving reproduction and his sperm, since with the high level of wild sexual activity throughout his life, he only got one woman pregnant that anyone really knows of, and that’s Mayte. (He’s said to have one other “love child” who’s come out recently, after Prince’s death, but the truth of that is unknown at this time.)

So at most, Prince fathered three children, with at most two women but likely only one. That’s out of dozens or more women who surely would have been very eager to be mothers of his children. And still, only two babies that were definitely his. Said two having sadly perished, one in the womb and one a short time after birth.

Prince and Mayte

Prince and Mayte in the 1990s

Now, it seems dishonest for Mayte to hint that the vegan diet they were into at the time was to blame; or perhaps she was misinformed. If her lack of nutrition was part of the problem, it was more likely from not eating enough of any foods, not a lack of animal foods.

I’ve read recent excerpts where Mayte encourages fans to be “flexitarians” with her, so frightened she still is of eliminating animal products from her diet. And she does love and care for animals…she is quite active in dog & cat rescue: http://maytesrescue.com. Which shows how that unwarranted fear of lack of animal foods can lead even a serious animal lover back to consuming them.

Prince was known to passionately desire children of his own, dreamed of babies all around him, so he was certainly not someone who would ever have chosen not to have kids. Beautiful women flocked to him, he could have had babies with any one of them, or any number. But he did not. Not well before he ever went vegan, and not well after he’d gone back to dairy, eggs, and whatever else he ate after he quit being vegan.

Seems he’d have most likely become a dad in the 1980s when he was at his peak of success, from about age 21 to 30, yet he never did. And no one would say his diet was responsible back then, unless they want to say an omnivorous diet was the problem. No, it was most likely that he, for some unknown reason, had a serious problem that prevented his becoming a father.

As you’ll see by reading here about Lucas and Kenya and their two awesome boys: http://ourveganpregnancy.blogspot.in/2015/10/extra-extra-read-all-about-it-our-vegan.html, vegans who eat well and take care of themselves have no problems with pregnancy, birth, and raising healthy kids. There are many more than Lucas and Kenya, but I’ll not bog this down with my chosen links. You can search “vegan pregnancies and child rearing” on your own, but beware of dishonest anti-vegan sites spreading misinformation when searching. Internet is full of such “land mines.”

There are miscarriages every day all over the world, and babies born with problems who are unable to survive. Their parents are not vegans. Percentage-wise, I’d be willing to bet that vegans’ chance of pregnancy problems is the same or perhaps lower than others, because vegans typically get more folate in their diets from healthy foods like leafy greens, along with other important nutrients found only in fruits and vegetables. And generally, vegans are more health conscious and go all out to have healthy pregnancies and kids, when not opposed to reproducing that is, obviously.

I just wanted to sort of clear this up here, even if just for myself, because I’ve always wondered if Prince or Mayte ever blamed their lack of surviving babies on veganism. And today I found a quote from Mayte saying just that. How distressing. She was pretty negative and unfair there.

Any thoughts, anyone? (But of course, any hate-filled vegan bashing will not be approved.)
