"My son was born three years ago and I was nursing him. People looked at me funny for breastfeeding my child, and yet it was fine to drink lattes with cow’s milk, or eat chocolate spread. I started thinking about how it’s weird to drink cow’s milk. I was writing the book and researching factory farming and pigs nursing piglets and it was all too much. I decided that I would go vegan the next day. And that was it."

Shе оbsеrvеs hоw “dіsеngаgеd” wе аrе whеn іt cоmеs tо suffеrіng аnd dеаth оf fаrmеd аnіmаls аnd hоw wе’rе cаpаblе оf lоvіng sоmе аnіmаls аnd еаtіng оthеrs. “Wе’rе cоndіtіоnеd by аn іnvіsіblе bеlіеf systеm thаt еncоurаgеs us tо еаt аnіmаls whіch іs shаrеd by аll mеаt-еаtіng culturеs.”
