Costs to consumers Steep, cheap meat, milk, and
eggs take hell out of health, environment and taxes.
VEGA NEWS 9 (February 2001) focussed on evils in the sheep
industry. Since then VEGA has sustained its general campaign
with statements to the FSA and protests at its public meetings,
press releases, and other publicity through the media, emphasizing
the above testimony.
The 2001 epidemic of foot-and-mouth disease and closure of
the countryside emphasized the futility of short-term botch-ups
with ill-aimed subsidies.
High-cost meat, milk, eggs, and fish will drive down production
and demand, and drive customers and consumers to enjoyment
of the healthier options of a vegetarian diet with long-term
value a better return than cut-throat price.
