SIR – November is Vegan Month – the perfect opportunity to start eating ethically.

By going vegan, in one simple step an individual can help to end animal suffering, reduce their carbon footprint and boost their health.

What other diet has such overwhelmingly positive benefits?

Animal Aid’s new five-minute film, Secrets Of The Dairy Industry – which can be viewed on the Vegan Month ( website – reveals how animals reared for their milk suffer brutal treatment on farms and at slaughter.

But the good news is that vegan foods – including non-dairy milk, cream, yoghurt, custard, cream cheese, ice cream and much more – can now be found easily in high street shops and supermarkets.

So there really is no reason for animals to suffer. Aspiring vegans can find more information at, which includes the opportunity to order a free comprehensive vegan guide, complete with recipes and nutritional information.
