A vegan is simply a practicing human herbivore.

All humans are herbivore by design.

That is an indisputable fact. (note: refer to Dr. Mills' "Comparative Anatomy of Eating" for a detailed analysis in chart format.)

Diet is the principle mode of earthly interaction and exchange. It is an essential feature of ecology that creatures function within certain behavioral 'niches' including dietary.

This is what enables nature's cooperative and supportive mechanisms to function and thus continuously renew and support all life. To not understand what we humans are designed to eat is so basic a misunderstanding that it has engendered many other destructive and self defeating behavioral forms including war and elitism.

This practical misunderstanding of our true herbivore natures also continues to bar our ability to commune as other animals do; openly, wholeheartedly and with a natural purity of spirit.
Vegans do not consume animal products or engage in behaviors that violate other animals' rights to life, habitat and nature determined experiences.

someone whose compassion for all living beings even includes the folk who felt it was okay to malign veganism with slanderous and incorrect definitions. to practice veganism is to avoid to whatever degree possible all products which are made from flesh or contain animal by-products with the exception of those shared between humans with mutual consent ( human breastmilk for example). most vegans also choose to buy organic foods manufactured by environmentally and socially responsible companies. to be vegan also means to embrace a lifestyle of compassion and non-violence. many people confuse strict vegetarianism, which is only dietary, with true veganism which encompasses all facets of a lifestyle and includes living your life with sense of the interconnectedness between all people, animals and our environment.
After reading John Robbins book " Diet For A New America" and educating herself about the detrimental impact animal agriculture has on not only the lives of animals but also our oceans, lakes, rainforests, topsoil, air quality and the health of human beings, Lisa made the very altruistic and gutsy decision to become a vegan.

Someone who does not use any animal products (which is near impossible). It has been proven that to be a vegan one must have a ridiculous superiority complex. This is often mistaken by the vegan and other vegans as enlightenment. This massive ego stimulation often results in insulting "meat-eaters" undeservedly, and the delusion that they are actually making a change. This also involves constant bragging about how much they love the lifestyle.
1. "If you are not a vegan, you are a terrible, terrible person incapable of feeling compassion or love because you can stomach the thought of killing a cow. Hold on, I have to finish my tofu and soy milk."
2. "As a vegan, I would sooner kill one human infant than two cows."
(Note: Number 2 is a direct quote from a vegan I know.)
