Veganism or vegetarianism more than a diet is a lifestyle dedicated to avoiding causing harm to animals as far as possible; In this, it includes what is done directly, such as hunting or fishing, but also the actions that are promoted with the use of them for human consumption and food.
Through it, it seeks to convey a message of respect towards all sentient beings, which is why this lifestyle is becoming more and more common, since more people discover that they can replace food and other products of animal origin with other alternatives , thus contributing to a reduction of speciesism, discrimination of animals based on their belonging to a species.
The American Nutrition and Dietetic Association points out that a vegan diet is recommended and healthy at all times of life. That is why millions of people have chosen to live without products of animal origin in their diet and their day to day.
