Who is a Vegetarian & who is a Vegan?
- A vegetarian is someone who does not eat meat,poultry,game,fish and other sea products or by products of animal slaughter.They do consume eggs or dairy products.
- A vegan is a vegetarian who avoids all animals & animal derived products. Veganism is more than just diet.Vegans refuse to spend money on clothing or beauty products or entertainments which involves exploitation of animals (Circuses,zoos or horse races etc)
“Vegan is not about being perfect. It is about doing the least harm and the most good.” Anonymous
Some of the quotes by famous persons
“I personally chose to go vegan because I educated myself on factory farming and cruelty to animals, and I suddenly realized that what was on my plate were living things, with feelings. And I just couldn’t disconnect myself from it any longer.” Ellen DeGeneres
“The greatness of a nation and it’s moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Gandhi
“The problem is that humans have victimized animals to such a degree that they are not even considered victims. They are not even considered at all. They are nothing; they don’t count; they don’t matter. They are commodities like TV sets and cell phones. We have actually turned animals into inanimate objects – sandwiches and shoes.” Gary Yourofsky
“My body will not be a tomb for other creatures.” Leonardo Da Vinci
“If slaughterhouses had glass walls, we’d all be vegetarian.” Paul McCartney
