As defined by the Vegan Society, veganism is “a philosophy and lifestyle that aims to eliminate all forms of animal exploitation or cruelty in all forms.”
Animal products are generally avoided for one or more of the reasons listed below.
Ethics Animal rights are a fundamental principle for ethical vegans.
As a result, ethical vegans oppose any act that would kill an animal for the sake of eating or wearing its flesh.
Additionally, ethical vegans firmly believe that milk, eggs, honey, silk, wool, and silk fibers are not the property of humans.
Health Health benefits may also be part of the reason why people opt for a vegan diet.
It is known that consuming large amounts of meat increases your risk for developing cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
The consumption of plant-based foods, on the other hand, appears to protect against the development of these diseases and premature death from them.
Environment In a bid to reduce their environmental impact, people avoid animal products.
Recent studies indicate livestock farming is one of the major sources of greenhouse gas emissions, which contributes to global warming.
