The general definition of a
VEGAN
is someone who does not eatanimal flesh (including fish),dairy products,or eggs. Many vegans alsodo not buy leather or other products of animal origin.
By not eatinganimal products,vegans remove the monetary support for animalfarming,and reduce the number of animals who are treated cruelly.
Sometimes new vegans spend a lot of time and energy making surethey do not use any animal ingredient,no matter how tiny the amount.This can show other people that they are living consistently with theirbeliefs. It also proves,both to others and to themselves,that a veganworld is possible.Unfortunately,because animal byproducts are so cheap,companieshave put them in so many things that avoiding all of them is impossi-ble. Many vegans eventually decide that it is not important to avoidevery single ingredient at any cost. Instead,it is more important toavoid the more obvious products of animal exploitation and use ourenergy to persuade others to do the same.When more people avoid the obvious ani-mal products,the byproducts will becomeless plentiful and more expensive; com-panies will replace them with othermaterials. In other words,persuadingone person to give up eating chickenwill likely do more good than if hundredsof vegans went from 99% to 99.9%pure.

Be Nice to
OtherHumans
,
Too
Sometimes it takes awhile to realize thatthe best way to spread veganism is to befriendly.
And among friends,being veganshould not be a game of who can avoid themost animal ingredients,or who is and who isnot really “vegan.” Be nice to your friends andrealize that any steps that anyone takes helpsanimals.Some parents are very understanding andsupportive of their vegan children; but many,if not most,do not understand what it is allabout. They might feel rejected by a kid whowill no longer eat the food they have made alltheir lives and have worked hard to put on thetable.Some parents are worried about theirteenagers getting proper nutrition from avegan diet. See page 7 for more details onthis.Stay firm in your belief in not harming ani-mals,but also be understanding toward yourparents — as you expect them to be towardyou. Many vegans have found that their friendsand family respond better when we don’tpreach to them.
