There are many reasons why people choose a plant-based eating style. Here is a list of possible rationales:
– Taste/don’t like animal foods
– Emotional/Sympathy for animals
– Most of their friends are vegan
– Health and healing (scientific or energetic)
Vegan means no animal products of any kind. Vegetarian means a consumer may want to include eggs and milk products, which are of animal origin but do not entail the killing of a living animal. Others won’t eat eggs because they could develop into animals.
