What is
Veganism, Anyway?

Lea Michele and Jason Mraz are vegans. So um… What is it? BFF is here to dispel some rumors!

-Vegans are like vegetarians, right?
Yes and no. Vegans do not eat animals, but they also do not eat any animal products. Foods like honey, milk, eggs, etc. are off-limits.

-Can they wear animal products?
Ethical vegans choose not to. This means they won’t buy leather jackets, belts, silk scarves, and bags. Also, they will try to avoid products that have been tested on animals.

-Is veganism a healthy choice?
Yup! Since vegans are not consuming meat, they tend to be at a lower risk for cardiovascular diseases and they have lower levels of obesity. However, poorly planned vegan diets can be low in calcium, vitamin D, iron, and vitamin B12, to name a few.
