The difference between a vegan and vegetarian diet are huge. Vegetarians don't eat meat (such as poultry, beef, and pork) and maintain their diet through plant-based foods. They do, however, eat food products such as milk and cheese. Vegans do not eat meat or any byproducts of animals, including milk, cheese, eggs. Most vegans will not support the killing of any animals for sport or fashion and so do not support industries that do.

In addition to living cruelty free, a vegan (or vegetarian) diet will help lower your risk of heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.
