Sir: Michael Strand (Letters, 20 August) quotes with approval Albert Schweitzer's statement that 'until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace'. This sounds good, but Schweitzer's principle of reverence for life raises an awkward question: what would we eat?

Yours faithfully,
