A vegan diet is part of a lifestyle that excludes the consumption or use of any products made from animals.
Vegans do not eat animal products, including honey, eggs, gelatin, or dairy. They will not use clothes, soaps, or other products that are animal-sourced in any way.
A vegan diet can be a highly nutritious choice, as it is low in saturated fat and rich in nutrients. However, starting out on an animal-free diet without proper planning can lead to some health risks.
All protein, vitamins, and minerals must come from non-animal sources, so food choice and preparation are important.
A 2016 poll suggests that around 2.5 percent of people in a specific country will follow a vegan lifestyle.
