Plant-Based Diet Could Negatively Impact Your Brain Health, Study Reveals

Plant-Based Diet Could Negatively Impact Your Brain Health, Study Reveals More and more people in the UK are now choosing a plant-based diet, with estimates there are as many as 540,000 full-time vegans joined by a further 250,000 every January doing the Veganuary challenge. While the benefits for the planet are well documented (earlier this month the UN issued a report saying switching to a plant-based diet can help fight climate change) are there negative health implications of not eating meat? A new study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) raises concerns about vegans being deficient in choline - a nutrient critical for brain health - as it is mainly found in animal foods.

A vegan man and woman in Australia are facing jail time after their 20-month-old daughter was found so severely malnourished that she didn't have any Court documents revealed that the emaciated child was breastfed once a day and then fed a strict diet of oats, potatoes, rice, tofu, bread and

Diet , Leaving Her Severely Malnourished . the strict vegan diet they chose for their 19-month-old daughter resulted in severe malnourishment as well The lack of vitamin D in the young girl's diet led to rickets, a degenerative bone disease that left her so "brittle" that doctors were afraid to handle her.

'The gains have not come easily,' the carer said.

'This crime has had a long-term impact on her development.'

The girl could now crawl, stand and walk and spoke about 20 words.

She had developed a healthy appetite but her short stature meant she was obese.

The mother told a hospital dietitian her entire family followed a vegan diet and detailed the extreme eating measures that led to the girl's condition.

She said her daughter would generally have one cup of oats with rice milk and half a banana in the morning, and a piece of toast with jam or peanut butter for lunch.

For dinner, she said her daughter would be offered tofu, rice or potatoes.

But she said the girl, who was also breastfed once day, was a 'fussy eater' so she might just have oats again.

Sometimes for a snack the child was given a mouthful of fruit or two sultanas.

This diet resulted in severe deficiencies in nutrients for the infant, including a lack of calcium, phosphate, vitamin B12, vitamin A, iron and zinc.

Her levels of vitamin D - which can cause bone disease if found to be too low - were 'undetectable'.

The couple's marriage broke down shortly after their arrest and they have since separated.

The man's defence barrister, Frank Coyne claimed the mother was the primary caregiver and dictated how the household was run.

'She decided the diet of the household … he is not and was not a vegetarian or a vegan.'

Crown prosecutor Julia Dewhurst slammed the man's defence, saying he sent the children to school with two pieces of bread and an apple.

He cannot now claim the decisions were solely made by (the girl's mother).'

Judge Huggett did not accept that the father was 'powerless'.

'He is older than the mother and could have just as easily have done something.'
