Joel Kahn wows with life-saving information and Shawn Stratton shares about the first Vegan Film Festival, happening in Ottawa this fall.Honey has long been a controversial subject among the vegan community.Some vegetarians don't eat eggs, but the majority do consume milk and butter.Vegetarians tend to be a bit more lenient when it comes to using products derived from animals and you may find preference varies from person to person.You see, people tend to see veganism as a diet, but actually it's a way of living that seeks to reduce harm and suffering. Two variations of a vegan diet are as follows: A raw vegan is a person who combines the concepts of veganism and raw foodism, excluding all food and products of animal origin from their diet, as well as food cooked at a temperature above 48 °C (118 °F). Followers eat a diet consisting mainly of meat, fish, vegetables and fruit, and excluding dairy, grains and processed food.
However, in addition to not consuming any animal meat, a vegan doesn’t eat eggs, dairy products or any other product derived from an animal.
Mother cows can be heard crying for their calves for days.
The mothers are then hooked up to milking machines two or more times a day and the milk meant for their calves stolen for human consumption.
In truth, it's really just a vegan diet, since the large majority of vegans endeavour to eat high-quality, organic foods anyway, generally avoiding ready-meals, sugar-laden sweets, soda drinks, etc. I should note here that one can also draw a distinction between a person who is a vegan and a person who doesn't identify as a vegan but eats a plant-based diet.
The latter is not neccessarily concerned with animal cruelty but chooses to eat plant-based to improve health.
