As rightly said above, it is vegans who do not eat animal products (and also in most cases use so-called "ethical" cosmetics, do not wear leather / fur, etc.). Vegetarians are those who don't eat meat.

Top reasons to be vegan / vegetarian:

  • ethical (I think the most common. and, as it seems to me, vegetarians from this category are the most aggressive. It is because of some ethical vegans that other people believe that all vegans without exception are inadequate hysterics, imposing their image on everyone people who give up meat for other reasons are much more calm and tolerant);

  • for health / dislike (someone may have allergic reactions to meat or lactose, for someone meat seems too heavy (many vegetarians note that after giving up meat they felt lightness in the body, digestion improved, etc.), for someone a lower risk of developing cancer is a sufficient reason to refuse to consume foods of living origin, for someone it is a way to lose extra pounds, but someone simply does not like the taste of meat);

  • ecology and economics (the so-called "ecological vegetarianism", they write about this in detail on all sorts of sites; there is also an article on Wikipedia. I rarely meet such vegans, usually this is an additional reason to some other, and not the main one, but it happens in different ways, of course. I think there are more such vegans in the West than in Russia);

  • spiritual (this is associated with belief in karma - by involving oneself in the circle of causing pain and suffering, not even directly, but by eating animals, a person condemns himself to the same suffering, to the same extent as he caused suffering to others; there is also an opinion that fear, pain, suffering of animals in slaughterhouses and during their killing leave a negative imprint on your "subtle body" when they are consumed; also in some teachings it is believed that you should not eat something what is close to us as a species - accordingly, most of all "stains" his karma is a person who eats a person, a little less - a person who consumes mammals, even a little less - if a person eats fish, very little - if he eats plants. the spiritual reason for veganism, IMHO, is the most difficult and deepest, so I will not write about it in full detail here. I myself most of all love the video with Alexey Pokhabov "The importance of nutrition in the development of the spirit" - he says very true things, calmly and without imposing niy).

These are, in my opinion, the main reasons. The rest of the reasons are their derivatives. If we also highlight the "fashionableness" of vegetarianism, then most often we are talking again about the ethical side of the issue (if you ask such people about the reason, they are unlikely to say "because it is fashionable", most likely they will say "sorry for animals"). The opinions of doctors on this issue are very different, by the way, and it cannot be said that all doctors are against or all doctors are for vegetarianism: there are doctors, and athletes, and scientific vegetarians..

  1. Fashion. The desire to stand out. The opportunity to say about myself "I'm not like everyone else," even "better than others, because I don't eat meat."

  2. Ignorance and belief in what you've read on the Internet. When people do not have enough knowledge about the structure of the human body, it is easy to deceive them, saying that a person's intestines are 4 times longer than the body and meat is toxic to him.

  3. Emotions. People feel sorry for animals and do not want to eat them.

There may be a combination of all these reasons.

People who do not consume animal products at all are vegans. They do not use honey, do not wear fur and leather products, not to mention the use of milk, eggs, etc.

As the famous American skeptic Guy Harrison said about belief in Atlantis: “Belief in Atlantis is a symptom of what something more serious. It can be seen as a red flag indicating violations. " But if not to be categorical, then "Everyone chooses for a woman, religion, road ..". In other words, everyone is free to choose which ideals and values ​​to believe.

And most often, the idea of ​​excluding meat from the diet comes for a number of reasons:

  1. Religion

  2. Ethics

  3. Medicine

  4. Economy

  5. Ecology

, etc.

Each is solely from their own beliefs.
