Often synonymous with herbivore or plant-eater. A person who does not eat parts of dead animals. Vegetarians correctly do not make a distinction between "red meat" and "not red meat", and as such do not consume any kind of seafood or poultry. Some people who seek to put forward a stoic, ascetic or progressive image may claim to be vegetarian while still eating fish or birds. These poseurs often give themselves the oxymoronic label of "pecso-vegetarians". The reasons for abstaining from animal flesh are typically, ethical, religious, ecological, health-related or economic. Vegetarians who also shun animal products such as milk, eggs and honey are called vegans (VEE- GEHNS). Ethical/environmental vegetarians and vegans also often avoid animal-derived goods such as leather, tallow in soaps, etc.
When Bill found out that a meat-based diet uses more resources and causes more pollution than a plant-based diet, he went vegetarian.
