For television presenter Jasmine Harman (Veganuary Class of 2014), going vegan was an ethical decision, which come to the fore when she was having trouble breastfeeding her daughter.
I just thought how can it be so difficult? Why do cows find it so easy to make milk for no reason? And I had this sudden dawning that cows don’t make milk for no reason. We’re all mammals and cows make milk because they’ve had a baby. And then I started thinking what happens to the baby? I started looking into it and what I discovered completely horrified me. I didn’t stop crying for about three days and I’ve never again touched dairy products.
Jasmine also created a video for Veganuary’s 2019 campaign in which she explained why she gave up cheese which you can view below:
