Vivienne Westwood is no stranger to a petition – and this time, it's your diet that she wants to change

The British designer, who is as famous for bringing modern punk and new wave fashions into the mainstream as she is for her political activism, has a new a mission. Westwood wants everyone to eat less meat and she has gone straight to the door of Number 10 Downing Street to tell the prime minister. 

On Wednesday, the 73-year-old delivered a petition to the British prime minister's office, highlighting the dangers of genetically modified food in the UK. 

“My comments were related to eating less meat. People are eating far too much factory farmed meat and junk food which is bad for you, and not providing the nutrients you need. You can source good food and farmed meat for less money.” Westwood is quoted as saying.

There is yet to be an official response from parliament.
