Vegan diet is ethical answer

Vegetarians should not feel smug about the latest meat scandal. Cows and egg-laying hens live longer than 'meat' animals – and are arguably treated worse.

They all end up at the same slaughterhouse to become meat, anyway. Only a vegan diet is ethical. It also happens to be better for our health and the planet.
