Vegetarians still harming animals

Published 25/02/2013

I totally agree with your correspondent Mark Richards (Write Back, February 12). I was a vegetarian for two years, naively believing that I was no longer causing any harm to animals.

Then I learned about the immense cruelty in the dairy and egg industries and realised that these industries were even worse than the meat industry.

I've been a vegan for 36 years now and my only regret is that I didn't discover the truth earlier.
