Vegetarianism has quite prevalent in the United Kingdom since the end of World War Two. A Food Standards Agency’s 2009 survey showed approximately 3% of the UK’s population are "completely vegetarian", and further 5% are "partly vegetarian (excluding some meats from their diet)". The UK has the third highest rate of vegetarianism in the European Union, according to the Canadian Agriculture and Agri-food. But is this drastic lifestyle choice really a good one? And should we be swapping our Christmas Turkey’s with a meat-free festive feast?
