You have just dined, and however scrupulously 
the slaughterhouse is concealed 
in the graceful distance of miles, 
there is complicity.

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Vegan Diet is a strict vegetarian diet excluding all animal products.  Many people choose to adhere to a vegan diet when they become aware of the profound cruelty involved in the meat and egg industry.  Others develop an appreciation for animal welfare and a respect for life that precludes them from needlessly killing animals. Still others understand the nutritional benefits of a vegan diet.

I believe that the more educated one becomes with respect to life and sentient beings, animal rights, prevention of cruelty, and nutrition, and social consciousness, the more likely one is to become vegan.  Please study nutrition carefully before becoming vegetarian.  Compassionate people, once educated and enlightened to these important issues, most often become vegan.

Here are a few of the many resources available on the Internet.  I will be adding more links.  My recommendation to readers is simply this:

 Educate yourself -- everything else will fall into place.
