The industrialized age and increased access to information have made people more and more health-conscious. Among many other eating trends, veganism has been gaining more and more popularity for the last two decades. Like many other trends, veganism may be either absolute or partial.
Complete abstinence from animal source foods is absolute veganism. However, some people abstain from meat, while others don’t consume dairy products and eggs as well.
Health consciousness is one (but not the only) reason behind more and more people going vegan. Some other common reasons are based on religion, environmental impacts of livestock farming, increased awareness of animals’ rights, and even inspiration from social media and celebrity endorsements.
