And if everyone reduces their meat/dairy consumption only by 90%, that's a huge improvement. Lots of vegans, I gather, are purists: they would say that a 90% reduction is morally comparable to no reduction at all. But it seems obvious to me that a 90% reduction is a lot closer to a 100% reduction: it's basically a victory.

David Drum Bum is right, and the way in which farm animals are intensively bred,reared and fattened is wrong because it causes them sustained pain.
ii. Then don't buy meat produced in that way.
ii.I don't because I am a good veg cook, and can afford to buy organic meat on special occasions. Trouble is that factory farmed meat and dairy are cheap and popular food sources in the absence of mass- produced vegetarian fast food.And in the absence of proper nutrition education.
