Baby Breastfed By Vegan Mother Dies

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist March 30, 2011

vegan breastfeedingAn 11 month old baby exclusively breastfed by a vegan mother has died and the parents are charged with neglect after an autopsy indicated the baby suffered from deficiencies in vitamin B12 and Vitamin A – both known to be critical to a child’s development.

Vegans have long been advised to take B12 supplements as long term veganism runs the huge risk of serious B12 deficiency as well as other nutrients only found in animal foods such as true Vitamin A.  Beta carotene is not true vitamin A nor does it easily convert to adequate amounts of Vitamin A in the body.

The Milk Cure in Action: Days 10-12

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist March 30, 2011

It's nearly Christmas!Paula’s observations on the Milk Cure also known as the raw milk fast continue in today’s post.   If you are just joining us, Paula Jager CSCS owns a Crossfit studio here in Tampa, FL and writes the fitness posts for this blog.

How much longer will Paula continue?  She originally wanted to fast for 5 days, but has continued through Day 12 so far.

Paula’s raw milk fast diary Days 1-3, Days 4-6, and Days 7-9 were previously posted, so don’t forget to read through those entries if this is something you are considering for yourself.   Springtime, after all, is the BEST time to do this fast as the rapidly growing spring grass in the unsprayed pastures where old fashioned, grassfed cows happily graze produces the most nutrient dense milk of the year.

Memories are made of this

Paula Jager’s Milk Cure journey continues in today’s post which chronicles Days 7-9.  Be sure to catch Paula’s observations on a raw milk fast for Days 1-3 and Days 4-6, previously posted.

Paula’s curiosity in the Milk Cure was piqued after receiving a copy of The Untold Story of Milk by Dr. Ron Schmid for Christmas.  Paula writes:

“Reading is one of my favorite pastimes and I quickly dove in. I was especially intrigued by the chapter on the healing benefits of the “raw milk cure” which had its roots with one of the founders of the Mayo Clinic. Best time to do this was spring. I put that on hold in the back of mind.”
