Talk on Veganism

Mr Nitin Mehta, founder of the Vegan Society, delivered an insightful talk on the responsibility each of us has to the planet, and how modifying our diet can improve our health as well as have respect for the environment we live in. This talk was followed by a short video about ill-treatment of animals. The talk led to a discussion with Mr Mehta by the audience, whereby they considered the benefits as well as disadvantages of soya in the diet.
