What does “vegan” really mean?

Veganism is a type of vegetarian lifestyle. Not only do vegans stay away from meat and fish, but they also don’t use any animal products at all. They also avoid wearing leather clothing and even going to circuses with animal acts. These days, flexible or part-time veganism is popular too. For example, someone still eats his uncle’s honey and someone sometimes buys second-hand leather products at the free market.

Why does this movement mainly exist in industrialized countries?

There are various reasons. Many people are inspired by scandals and news reports to find more information about the conditions and consequences of how animals are kept and meat production.

The facts often don’t match their expectations. Some people go vegan when they find out more about the production of eggs and milk, where each animal is exploited to get the maximum output. Disgusted, they look for alternatives. But why do people eat animal products in the first place? Because of their nutrients. Meat, milk, eggs, and fish have always been around in tough times to satisfy human’s nutritional needs and give them more variety in their diet. Nowadays, in industrialized nations, plant-based foods are always available. Consuming high quantities of meat holds major health risks over time. 

So vegans are often even healthier than people would expect. That is one thing medical research should look into more closely… For example, one study by universities in Belgium and France found that vegans have better nutrition. But there are certain nutrients that vegans need to be especially careful about. For example, Vitamin B12 is not present in sufficient amounts in any plant-based foods. That’s one case where nutritional supplements are helpful. 

These days, vegetarian and vegan dishes are more and more common on menus and almost every supermarket carries meat substitutes. But of course, a vegan label doesn’t make a food item healthy automatically. As always, we need to know more about it. 

It sums up: When people find out more about animal farming and its consequences, more and more of them decide to live partially or fully vegan lifestyles. But it remains a personal decision. Now some people also want to eat less meat and pay better attention to her food choices – reducing her impact on the environment. By consuming less meat and more fruit and vegetables, people even save money! That way people can afford to be more selective with food and help to consciously reshape the market.
