If you drink the milk from a mother cow, you need to learn about the dark secret of the dairy industry and then decide if you still choose to be part of it.
No Matter What We Do, We Can Always Make A Difference
This blog has been on the cards for quite a long time, but, life is what it is, and it dictated to me that this would must be completed with patience; I have simply not had the time to think about blogs far less write one – I have just been catching snippets of time here and there to write a few lines at a time!
With it being on the back-burner it was a strong coincidence that I had planned to publish it last week on the very day I woke up to find out Virgin Trains UK was Read More

My first steps into a plant-based diet in April 2018 were not your typical ones. It was a dark time; darker than many could imagine. Having separated from my wife only two days after my mother died in December 2017, my world had been ripped apart. I was unable to function as a normal human being. An attempt at some sort of reconciliation in the New Year eventually resulted in my moving out for good at the end of March 2018.

There was nowhere near as much mainstream talk, publicity, activism, adverts or information then as there has been over the past few years.

I have a big announcement everyone. Apologies for the long post, but I’m really making a big change in my life. Please read the whole thing.
I’ve decided not only to stop being an activist, but also that being vegan isn’t for me. As a logical, compassionate person, I can’t condone veganism anymore.
I’ve been educating myself and have realised something. An industry which breeds, confines, exploits and prematurely kills at least 56 billion sentient land animals (and countless marine animals) every year; is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution and habitat destruction (and many more); and offers products which directly promote our biggest Read More
