    i love animals, i hate cruelty and the way people eat, they have not thought were the food has come from, its already prepared, no blood,no feathers no fur. milk is in big demand. cheese etc. i wont drink cows milk, i hate animals suffering for human food.

    I agree with Lisa. I am 14 and vegan. I have been veggie for most of my life. I think it is wrong and unnatural to eat meat and i am sorry to hear about Donald Watsons recent death. No animal deserves to die for our tastebuds. No animal deserves to die…

    ps Donald Watson outlived Robert Atkins.
