Veganism (veganism, English veganism) is a lifestyle that seeks to exclude — as far as possible and feasible — all forms of exploitation and violence against animals as food, clothing or any other purposes. The term veganism was introduced in 1944 by the British public figure Donald Watson when he founded the Vegan Society.
Some plant-based foods
Vegan  (English vegan) — a person who follows the principles of veganism. Vegans refuse to consume all types of meat, milk (not counting breast milk when feeding babies), eggs, honey, as well as other substances and additives produced using animals (such as gelatin or carmine). In addition, vegans do not use clothing and other household items from animal products (leather, wool, silk, etc.), and also refuse household chemicals and cosmetics tested on animals. Vegans do not support animal circuses, zoos, dolphinariums and other entertainment involving the use of animals for entertainment purposes.
It differs from vegetarianism in that it affects not only the field of nutrition. People who adhere to a vegan lifestyle only in food are called strict vegetarians. In the English-speaking space, the term “plant-based” is used.
