James Aspey - From a Big Meat Eater to Vegan Animal Rights Activist

Why did James Aspey, a big meat eater who doesn't really love animals, decide to go vegan?

James Aspey was convinced that being vegan is extreme and unhealthy. But then, he decided to take a closer look.

He had always viewed himself as a good person. However, what he learnt about animal agriculture went against his core values of avoiding unnecessary violence towards animals. What is a man to do?
