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.

A modern diet followed by people who, for various reasons, don't eat animals. Eating animals used to be necessary in the stone age, but we now have the knowledge and resources to follow a healthy vegan diet. Contrary to popular belief, it IS possible to follow a vegetarian diet and still consume adequate protein. Soy products and other legumes contain amounts of protein comparable to meat, and also contain less fat. Most vegetarians are thinner and healthier than people who eat meat, and live on average 7 years longer.
