This book will take you through the change from being
a meatie to a vegetarian – every step of the way.
Every question answered, every doubt knocked on the head
and every concern sorted.
If you’re already veggie, this book will give you
the confidence and knowledge to argue for your beliefs.
If your parents are worried, it will put their minds at
rest. If you’re short of facts, you’ll find
Farming has become a secret industry where animals are
crammed together behind closed doors, away from prying
eyes. Section 1 of this book shines a spotlight into the
darkest corners and reveals what it’s really like.
As you’ll discover, even the animals you see in the
fields are not the examples of contentment you’re

and fish as they find out its real cost – and it’s

spent most of my working life trying to save animals, talking
to tens of thousands of young people and campaigning all

is that one person can make a difference.
Throughout their life, one person eats 5 cows, 20 pigs,
29 sheep, 760 chickens, 46 turkeys, 15 ducks, 7 rabbits,
one and a half geese and half a ton of fish.
