PRACTICING Human Herbivore
ALL humans are herbivore by NATURE's design. Meat eating began in limited circumstances and was not a part of the 'hunter' tradition but rather was introduced by ancient temple priests to traumatize and condition children into becoming violence-enabled soldiers and police for the court.
This type of conditioning is called 'trauma-based conditioning'. The very ancient and horrific circumstances that introduced meat-eating in ancient temple cultures around the world have been intentionally obscured by today's miltiaristic societies, including the secret police run states of Europe and the US.
Biological proof of these facts are easy to find including the one that NO creature EVER violates its natural biological niche behaviors unless forced to do so.

Vegan is a stupid cultural term. Dietary behaviors must respect natural requirements. Humans are herbivores naturally and only culturally scripted to commit murder of animals. This is not a 'cultural' or 'lifestyle' issue.
We don't need more 'vegans' we need more people to stop sucking on the corporate disinformation machine and awaken to their own design imperatives as scripted by nature. And then to live accordingly as human herbivores.
This is an ecological issue and it is at the crux of every stupidty underlying and driving our arrogant, elitist, ignorant and war-mongoring society.
If you are not living as a human herbivore, you are an ecological moron.
Someone who slaughters and kills fruits, and vegetables.
The poor carrot had no chance.
People who refrain from eating any animal products (or anything derived from animal products) or using animal products such as leather, silk, or wool. It is a more strict form of vegetarianism. People who are vegan are often passionate about their veganism.
The American Dietetic Association continues to assert that a vegan diet is a healthy diet.

Somebody who abstains from consuming products derived from the exploitation of animal life.
When asked why she was vegan and abstained from drinking milk, Mary explained that cows are severely confined, artificially inseminated and shot up with numerous hormones in order to produce milk on commercial dairy farms - something she wished not to contribute to.
Veganism is a diet that obstains from any animal products (meat) or bi-products (i.e. eggs, milk, wool, leather, etc).
Most people will assume that because you follow a vegan lifestyle, you must be a pretentious jerk (or in a cult). This is NOT always the case (although you do have your exceptions that give the rest of us a bad name).
Being vegan doesn't mean you have to be a part of any organization (i.e. PETA) or chain yourself up and protest. It just means that you choose to follow a 100% herbivore diet for whatever reason. Choosing to be vegan for diet purposes or animal rights purposes doesn't matter, as long as you're doing it because YOU want to.
If you do it correctly you DO NOT GET SICK and you DO NOT NEED SUPPLIMENTS in order to be healthy and happy. :-.)
*At a "mixed" bbq party* (Who would have thought vegans dine with meat-eaters? Yes, it's true, we do! OMG!)
John: Would you like to try some teriyaki steak tips?
Jane: No, thanks, I'm vegan. I would love it if you could pass me the tofu fritters though.
John: No, problem. *passes fritters*
THE WORLD CONITNUES UNINTERRUPTED AND NOBODY NEEDS TO STAND ON A SOAP BOX AND BELITTLE EACH OTHER. AWESOME.
Someone who abstains from the use of animal products, hides or meat.
Joe - Try on these leather shoes.
Vegan - No thanks man. I'm a vegan.I don't believe in the killing of animals for the use of their hide, or any other purpose.
1: someone who abstains not only from eating meat, but also milk, eggs, and anything else derived from animals.
Note: Not to be confused with a Nazivegan, who follows a vegan diet but flaunts one's veganhood over everyone else as if it is somehow morally superior. Kinda like saying that a gazelle is morally superior to a lion because the lion is a carnivore, you know? They're not better than each other; just different.
'I made sure I had veggie patties and vegetable shishkabobs on hand at my barbecue because some of the people I invited are vegans.'
A person who out of respect or compassion for animals, the environment, creation, or their own self, has chosen to eliminate animal products including, but not limited to, meat, dairy, eggs, honey, leather and wool from their lives. Often reviled by society, they are a committed group, who put ethics and love before the dictates of their taste buds or tradition. Vegans often cross-identify as radicals, pacifists, hippies and new age spiritiualists.
Moby is a vegan; Leonardo da Vinci was a vegetarian.
