How I became a vegan: As a preschooler, I asked my mother what my sausage was. When told, I expressed disappointment. After thinking for a while, I suggestd 'couldn't they just cut a bit off the animal's bum'? I became a vegetarian aged 10, influenced by two friends and an aunt. Giving up milk later helped me to recover from M.E/ C.F.S. Aged 17, my student teacher took me to Animal Aid for homework research. I learnt about the egg industry and started becoming a vegan.
