Is Eating Vegan Better
For Our Health?
FOUNDER OF VEGAN
Donald Watson was born in 2nd September,
1910 at Mexborough, Yorkshire, the son of
a headmaster in a mining community. He
was schooled till at the age of fifteen and
Watson was apprenticed to a
family joinery firm, and became a joinery
teacher when he was twenty. He taught
in Leicester, where he also played a large
part in the Leicester Vegetarian Society.
As a child, Watson spent time on his uncle George's farm. The slaughtering of a pig on
the farm horrified Watson; he said his view of farm life changed from idyllic to a death
row for animals. Watson began to reassess his practice of eating meat. He became
a vegetarian in 1924 at the age of fourteen, making a New Year's resolution to never
again eat meat. He gave up dairy products about 18 years later, having understood the
production of milk-related products was also unethical.
