Babies' Mental Delay Tied to Moms' Vegan Diet

(AP) - The breast-fed infants of two mothers who did not eat any animal
products, including milk and eggs, developed brain abnormalities as a
result of a vitamin-B12 deficiency, the US Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC) reported Thursday. The primary sources of vitamin
B12, which is essential for brain development, are animal products like
meat, dairy products and eggs. Since the mothers ate little or no animal
products, too little vitamin B12 was transmitted to their children
through breast milk, according to the CDC's Dr. Maria Elena Jefferds.
