Hardcore vegan baby nearly dies

A couple in Italy will not be getting their child back, after their 14 month old son was hospitalized for severe malnutrition.

Via SF Gate:

When a 14-month-old Italian baby arrived at a hospital in Milan on July 2, he was severely malnourished with the body weight of a three-month-old.

His calcium level was at the minimum needed to survive and this was exacerbating a heart condition that required him to undergo emergency surgery.

The surgery was successful and the baby is recovering well but will not return to the hands of his parents because doctors say the child suffered due to a strict vegan diet.
