Letter: Eat plants

Vegetables harbour E.Coli only because they have been contaminated with faeces from livestock. If we all gave up meat, there would be no contamination. Not only is ethical vegetarianism the best practice to solve our environmental crisis, it takes violence out of our collective consciousness.
