Why I became a vegan – and why you should, too
In early October, I surprised my family, friends and colleagues by announcing that I had become a vegan. Up until then, I wasn’t even vegetarian. I loved sausages, I ate chicken several times a week and I couldn’t imagine living without cheese. I have, of course, known for a long time that animal farming is a nasty business. Like everyone, I have seen those distressing pictures of the conditions endured by poultry, cattle and pigs in factory farms.
