Why Are People Vegan?

Being vegan is a bold choice. In a world where the biggest restaurant chains are McDonalds, KFC and Burger King, saying no to meat can be a tough thing to do. But why are people vegan in the first place?

There are many reasons why someone might chose to be vegan. However, the top choice are usually: dietary requirements, against harming animals, or following the trends. Most people who are vegan will likely tell you they do it because they care about animals. To product the burgers and sausges many people love, lots of innocent animals have to die. Instead of having innocent animals lives on their conscience, they make an effort to avoid eating meat at all costs. Instead they stick to a strick plant based diet that involves only eating natural and organic vegetables.

To someone people this might seem strange and silly. But to others its a bold choice to stand up to something you believe in. Being vegan doesn't just end at the diet though, its a way of life. There are many household items and products that are regularly tested on animals. Vegans have to carefully choose the products they buy to ensure they don't contain any animal byproducts.
