      Parents' vegan diet 'nearly killed child'

      by Standard Reporter
      A vegan couple have been accused of nearly starving
      their baby daughter to death by denying breast milk
      and feeding her nuts, fruit and vegetables.

      Ice Swinton weighed only 10lb at the age of 17 months
      when care officials discovered her. She was half the
      weight of a normal child her age.

      Her parents Joseph and Silva Swinton, both 31, of
      Queens, New York, have been charged with reckless
      endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

      The couple claim that they treat veganism as a
      religion.

      Doctors who examined their daughter discovered she was
      suffering from development problems including a
      distended abdomen, fractured bones, rickets and a lung
      disorder, all due to malnutrition.
