Veganism is a philosophy and lifestyle whose adherents seek to exclude the use of animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose.[1][2] Vegans endeavor to never consume or use any animal products of any type.[3] The most common reasons for becoming, or remaining, vegan are moral conviction concerning animal rights or welfare, health, environmental concerns, and spiritual or religious concerns.[2][4][5]

Properly planned vegan diets are healthful and have been found to satisfy nutritional needs, and offer protection against obesity, heart and renal diseases, cancer and rheumatoid arthritis.[6][7] Various polls have reported vegans to be between 0.2%[4] and 1.3%[8] of the U.S. population, and ranging from 0.25%[5] 0.4%[9] to 2%[10] of the UK population.
