DEMIES are people who don't want to eat animal mammals for
ethical, health or environmental reasons, but find it just too difficult to
become a vegan or vegetarian. Animal mammals are the same as us, in so much as
they give birth to their young and ween them on their own milk - so that's a good
ethical reason not to eat them. There's also climate change and health issues.
Although DEMIES don’t eat animal mammals, they eat all other types of foods.
Including: fruit and vegetables; poultry and fish; eggs and diary; grains,
nuts, and pulses. So, when one thinks of all the different meals one can have, it’s
easy to understand that it’s no real sacrifice to become a DEMY.
Other reasons not to eat animal
mammals include the recent Government's advisory ‘Committee on Climate Change’
report recommending the number of sheep and cattle in the UK should be reduced
by between a fifth and a half to help combat climate change. Coupled with the NHS Eatwell guidelines on
healthy eating, which proposes a reduction in consumption of 89% for beef and
63% for lamb, and a 20% decline in dairy products - there is no better time to
reconsider our position on eating animal mammals.
So, as the New Year gets under
way, now’s the time to resolve to become a DEMY.
