Angela Gossow is a German singer and former lead vocalist of the Swedish heavy metal band Arch Enemy.
Her mother became vegetarian at the age of 3 or 4 after seeing how animals were slaughtered and how sausages were made. She brought those values into her own family and thus Angela was born and brought up as a vegetarian. When she became an adult she decided to go one step further by cutting out eggs and dairy.
In an interview with PETA2.com she explained why she chose to go vegan:
‘I’ve always been educating myself. I’ve been watching all the documentaries about animal transport, what’s happening in slaughterhouses. I know everything about the hormones, the antibiotics that you find in meat and milk products. It costs society … billions of dollars for health insurance for all their heart problems, blood pressure problems, diabetes 2.’
