Veganism is becoming more popular every year. Since 2008, there are 350% more people who have completely abandoned animal protein!
But not everyone is what exactly will happen in a year with the body, if you radically change the diet.
Veggie has a long and difficult history.
In Russia, the first society of vegetarians appeared before the revolution. "Slaughterhouses" printed magazines, created restaurants and argued with the most famous doctors of their time.
Among the most famous people of pre-revolutionary Russia who refused steaks and meatballs are: Ilya Repin and Leo Tolstoy, who actively implanted among their followers the doctrine of "human" attitude towards animals and their lives.
Today, vegetarianism has taken a strong position and is one of the most popular among "non-standard" power systems in the world.
And veggieism has a lot of forms and variations — from lacto-vegeterianism (rejection of meat, but not from milk), to raw food diet (consumption of only raw thermally vegetables and fruits).
One of the strictest forms of vegetarianism is veganism or veganism — rejection of the consumption of any animal protein.
Simply put, such a food system not only taboos meat, but also any dairy products, eggs and fish in any form.
Vegetables and fruits are the main food of vegans.
Veganism is becoming more and more popular every day.
According to statistics from British scientists, since 2008 the number of vegans in the world has increased by 350%!
Someone becomes vegan simply because he pity the animals. Someone wants to be slimmer and healthier.
