      [Huffington Post UK]

      If the thought of unwittingly munching on horse meat has made you
      think about leaving the animals in the field and adopting a meat-free
      lifestyle, you are not the only one. Presently, 5% of British people
      are vegetarian, but studies have shown that this figure could rise to
      10% by 2015. In addition to this, more and more are turning to
      "flexitarianism" where meat is cut out of the majority of meals.

      Having been vegetarian for 14 years I have seen a huge rise in choice
      both in the supermarkets and in restaurants, making it easier than
      ever before to eat great food every day. That said, making the switch
      to a vegetarian lifestyle can be more difficult that simply bypassing
      the burgers at Tesco.

      Reasons to Go Vegetarian

      There is no doubt about it; horse burger-gate has certainly got the
      'ick' factor. Not only are the majority of British people unaccustomed
      to eating horse meat, it's a frightening thought to think that the
      meat you believe to be beef could be all manner of animals. People
      have lost trust in labels and a switch to vegetarianism is a safer
      prospect for them.
