Of course when influential people like Jeremy Corbyn go vegan, the positive impact goes way beyond Jeremy Corbyn himself. As any marketer will tell you, celebrities act as huge multipliers on public behaviour. Whether it's Lenny Henry promoting a well-known hotel brand, Jess Ennis, health insurance or Russ Abbot, a cigar company (congratulations if you're old enough to remember the last one!), the impact of celebrity is significant.

The Cruelty Of The Egg Industry And How We Can Help

I discovered that the average broiler (meat) chicken lives only 45 days (up to 70 days if free range or organic), despite a life expectancy of about 10 years. The majority endure short lives in overcrowded barns or sheds, beaks clipped, with less space than a sheet of A4 paper. When they reach full-size they are cruelly transported to a premature and painful death.

We're all used to it by now; when the summer arrives, so do the fashionable diets that claim to completely transform our bodies in a few short weeks. They take over our news feeds, magazine racks and even the supermarket aisles. But is there some truth in the latest summer health trends?

My mum has announced that she will eat less meat. She now has two meatless meals a day. It's a big step for someone who - as much as she respects and supports my lifestyle choice - never wanted to try any of my food, dismissing it as something "for vegans only".

Vegan Burgers Are Taking Over Our Streets, And I'm Lovin' It

Lishai Kaufer

You know vegan has become a monster food trend when you can pick up a dairy-free, meat-free, egg-free and in many cases gluten-free quick bite on pretty much any street corner. I'm not talking about high street fancy pants restaurants with incomprehensible menus. I mean the fun, fast, humble, finger-licking stuff from food trucks, pop-up cafes, market stalls, burger bars, and the like. Proper street food.

Okja: The Heart-Warming Story That Exposes The Horrors Of The Meat Industry

It's beautiful, disturbing, raw and powerful all at once. It melts your heart one minute and makes you squirm the next. And if it makes you stop eating meat or question the treatment of farm animals that are simply bred and killed for food then Director Bong Joon Ho has done his job. It's time we started taking more responsibility for what's on our plates, and I think after watching this film you probably will.

I Don't Eat Meat Because There's No Need To

Jonathan Young | Posted 30.05.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Jonathan Young

Often when I tell people I don't eat meat, I immediately see battle lines being drawn. Some will go on the defensive, countering with rationalisations about their own behaviour (completely unprompted). Others will attempt to undermine me by finding inconsistencies in my behaviour. Perhaps they saw me step on a snail when I got off the train.

Almost half of young people think they have a milk allergy. Yes, you can say it's a trend and yes, you can say it's largely for health reasons but what if the real reason why milk sales are plummeting was because people are realising it's gross?

If I could persuade you to do one single thing it would be to at least eat considerately. By all means eat meat if you so wish, but please for the sake of the billions of animals that have died for your burgers and sausages, order or make more realistic portion sizes.
