What is veganism?
Veganism is a lifestyle that excludes all animal products. This means that vegans do not eat meat, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, or honey. They also do not wear leather, wool, silk, or any other animal-derived materials. In addition to this, vegans do not use any products that have been tested on animals or contain animal-derived ingredients.
Why do people go vegan?
The most common reason why people go vegan is for ethical reasons. Animals raised for food are often kept in cramped and dirty conditions. They are given hormones and antibiotics to keep them alive in these conditions. These animals are also slaughtered inhumanely. Many vegans believe that it is wrong to support this industry by eating animal products.
