The difference between vegetarian and vegan
The difference between vegetarian and vegan is that vegetarian don’t eat any animals, including pigs, chickens, cows, fish, and all others. In addition to not consuming any animal flesh, a vegan also doesn’t consume dairy milk, dairy cheese, eggs, or any other product derived from an animal, including honey.
Why do vegans also choose to not eat dairy products and eggs?
A lot of people think that animals used to produce dairy products, like milk cheese and eggs are treated humanely. Unfortunately that’s not true.
The dairy industry is just as cruel as the meat industry. Cows are being forced pregnated to produce milk. And their newborns are being taken away after only a couple of days.
Benefits for the environment
Many studies have already proven that vegans have a significant lower greenhouse-gas footprint. Approximately 60% smaller than meat-eaters.
Every life matter. A vegan diet saves more than 100 animals lives per year.
