Farming group slams Vegan Society for lack of whole truth propaganda

Farmers For Action (FFA) Northern Ireland have written a letter to the Vegan Society to be ‘held account’ on their propaganda.

“Our question is simply this: Will your advertising in future and definition of veganism clearly state in equal size print that worms and soil microbes will die in the process of growing the vegetables required for veganism?”
