Why do people turn vegan? There may be a wide variety of reasons; the self-interest to stay and remain healthy could be one such reason. Another is to stay away from animal agriculture, brought about by a genuine concern for animals.
How do vegetarians differ from vegans?
Vegetarians are those who do not eat animals; except for eggs. They also tend to consume milk. Vegans are those who do not consume the aforesaid items, as well as honey. Apart from these, hard-core vegans also tend to avoid dressing up in clothes made from animal skin and products.
While people agree with the humanitarian and health aspects of taking up a vegan diet, they may not be ready to control their craving or self-indulgence. While there is no law restricting animal-consumption, it is a craving that should be suppressed in order to uphold ethical values. Turning vegan is a step by step process, which provides a feeling of satisfaction that you have contributed something to the society.
Vegan food is less expensive and also healthier when compared to non-vegetarian food. An appropriately researched and planned vegan diet can help you gain adequate nutrients while minimising cholesterol and fat. All it takes to turn vegan is gaining adequate information and having a lot of determination.
Celebrities who are Vegans
Some famous vegan celebrities include Natalie Portman, Alicia Silverstone, Casey Affleck, Demi Moore, Pamela Anderson and Toby Maguire.
The famous Paul McCartney once said, “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.”
