Veganism is not just an eating pattern or a choice of food, but a lifestyle having rationale behind whatever we decide to eat. When one goes vegan, he chooses not to consume dairy, eggs, or any other products of animal origin, in addition to refraining from meat, as vegetarians do. Currently,Veganism is defined as a way of living, which attempts to exclude all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty, be it in the form of food, clothing, or any other thing.
