Was a vegetarian for 2 yrs. during H.S. though, don't recall having much basis for the decision @ the time. I guess, during the late 80's, the hot topic was the inhumane treatment of veal so, that probably spurred it. Obviously since, many more heartbreaking exposes have come to light and I suppose, my social consciousness will no longer allow me to turn my back. Must add, however that am still non-veg (don't wanna misrepresent) just trying to position myself to slowly adopt the lifestyle. Thus far, have successfully semi-adopted soy milk...a small but encouraging change. I'm hoping to be influenced by those in the group to slowly make the transition.
