[quote="dandylioness] i know milks not healthy, but today someone told me there were enzymes in milk meant only for humans. i didnt have anything to say because i hadnt heard this before.[/quote]
Okay...let me be perfectly clear about this. There is NOTHING in a non-human animal's milk that is FOR human animals.
Cow's milk is for calves...not humans. if people really think about it and put their minds to it, then it should repulse them. hello???!!!!!....You are drinking the milk of another
species. talk about unnatural. Nature intended the milk for calves, not humans.
Raising your kids vegan is not only NOT child abuse, but the best thing you can do for them, if done properly and in an informed matter. But as somebody said, you have to inform and educate yourself about how to raise vegan kids. I know a few people that have healthy thriving kids on a vegan diet - kids that are healthier than their meat eating counterparts. For example, they dont have allergies, they dont get ear infecions, they have HEALTHY eating habbits,
which will serve them well later on in their lives, etc etc.
I recommend browsing the website for the Physicians Committee of Responsible medicine at www.pcrm.org
. They have lots of info on the "myths" about dairy, raising vegan kids, sugar addiction, etc.
And, tdouglas is a good example of somebody we have all met on cyberspace that is living breathing proof than an INFORMED and proper vegan diet is appropriate in all cycles of life - from when one is in a woman's womb, all the way to adulthood.
