No one knows what is in the meat products that we find on British supermarket shelves; horse meat and pig meat were found in beef burgers and even a human tooth was found in a sausage.

These processed red meat products contain another nasty surprise: scientists have linked them to bowel cancer.

We already know that those who don’t eat meat suffer less from heart disease and strokes. With the many undercover investigations showing the horrific cruelty inflicted on animals at the time of slaughter still fresh in our minds, isn’t it time to consider switching to a meat-free diet?
