What is Veganism?

Veganism was a movement started in November 1944 by a British woodworker named
Donald Watson announced that because vegetarians ate dairy and eggs, he was going to
create a new term called “vegan,” to describe people who did not.
Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet,
and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. An individual
who follows the diet or philosophy is known as a vegan.
