List Of Vegans

Veganism increased significantly in popularity in the 2000s, in part for reasons of human health, and in part out of concern for animals or the environment.

Vegans can be split broadly into three groups. Dietary vegans exclude animal products from their diets, often for health reasons, but may continue to wear clothes or use toiletries that contain them. Ethical vegans are concerned with animal rights, rejecting the commodification of animals entirely, and refusing to eat or use them in any way. Environmental vegans argue that a wholly plant-based diet is the only environmentally sustainable way to feed the expanding human species; Paul Watson, president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, writes that the society's ships are vegan because its crews are marine conservationists, not because they are animal rights advocates.

The following is a list of notable people reported to have adhered to a vegan diet at some point in their life, whether for health reasons or any other.

Famous quotes containing the words list of and/or list:

    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    I am opposed to writing about the private lives of living authors and psychoanalyzing them while they are alive. Criticism is getting all mixed up with a combination of the Junior F.B.I.- men, discards from Freud and Jung and a sort of Columnist peep- hole and missing laundry list school.... Every young English professor sees gold in them dirty sheets now. Imagine what they can do with the soiled sheets of four legal beds by the same writer and you can see why their tongues are slavering.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
