Is it wrong to eat meat?

Dannii Minogue, the Australian singer and actress, is a vegan. She doesn't eat any meat, fish or dairy products. “When I was thirteen I began to find meat too fatty. I felt very sick when I ate it. So I stopped eating meat and became a vegetarian.” Four years later, Dannii stopped eating eggs, milk, and cheese because they were bad for her voice. She gave up fish too, and became a vegan. Then she started reading about factory farming - how we keep and kill animals. She was disgusted by what she read: “Factory farming is awful because the animals suffer so much.” She knew that her decision to become a vegan was right for the animals as well as for herself.

Brian Harvey, a singer with the group East 17, enjoys eating meat and junk food. “When I'm hungry I want a big burger, not a wet salad. I love my burgers and fried chicken takeaways. And Chinese food - if it has got meat in it. What is vegetarian food anyway? Tomatoes, crispy lettuce, green peppers, onions. No, thanks!” Brian likes animals but feels that it is natural for people to eat meat.
