Will we all be vegan in the future?

P. BelCher, Barton-le-Clay, Beds.

PAUL MORLEY (Letters) questions how veganism is better for the planet and why people want to eat fake meats. He should realise that the destruction of the rainforest is mostly down to satisfying the cravings of meat-eaters. Around 80 per cent of the world’s soybean crop is fed to livestock, which is one of the many reasons why people have turned their backs on a carnivorous diet. In 2022, Ipsos research found that 46 per cent of British people aged 16-75 are considering reducing their intake of animal products. As they have been brought up with

the taste and texture of meat, artificial meats can help them get accustomed to a different diet. I prefer nut roasts, bean burgers, etc, which do not try such mimicry.

GeorGe pinnell, london n10. A question for Mark Richards (Letters). if we all became vegans, what would happen to all the herds of cattle, droves of pigs and flocks of sheep? they are not suitable pets.

B. Clare, Welling, Kent. MAKING campus meals meat and dairy-free is a smart move by the University of Warwick (Mail Online). Each time we sit down to eat, we can choose not to contribute to animals’ misery, our own ill health and pollution of the planet by opting for a plant-based meal. PETA offers a free vegan starter kit for anyone looking to make the switch.

luCY Watson, peta Foundation, london n1. A consuMeR survey says traditional pies such as steak and kidney are losing favour, with the elderly dying off and increasing vegetarianism. this is utter nonsense. the reason why sales are dropping off is that most manufacturers put barely 25 per cent meat in their pies, which are full of stuff you don’t want to eat.
