How are vegans different from vegetarians?
Vegetarians don’t eat meat or fish but they can eat eggs, honey and dairy products, but
vegans don’t eat any animal-based food products. Vegans argue that suffering is caused in
the production of these foods, for example they say that, on some dairy farms, male calves
are killed because they are too expensive to keep, and on some farms, cows are killed when
they get older and produce less milk. Similarly, on some egg farms, male chicks are killed
because they do not produce eggs. As for honey, vegans say that bees make honey for bees,
not for humans, and that bees’ health can suffer when humans take the honey from them.
Vegans believe that the products they use and consume should be free from not just cruelty
but any exploitation of animals.
