I have skimmed through a thread on this news item, and the general concensus (actually supported by the source material) was that the parents flat-out starved the kid to death, regardless of what it was the parents themsleves were eating.

The reckless implication is that vegans are in danger of starving to death, but that has nothing to do with what happened here. Would it have been less awful if the parents had starved the kid to death while the parents themselves dined on filet mingon?
