ABSTRACT
The article features vegetarian Bruce Standish of Australia. With his mother's support, he started to stop eating meat at the age of four with the realization that meat was once an animal. He became actively involved in the Victorian Vegetarian Society during the early 1960s which later transformed into the Vegetarian Society of Australasia Inc. Despite the inactive status of the society, Standish still freely gives advice on vegetarianism and infrequently organizes health meetings.
