WORLD VEGETARIAN DAY
World Vegetarian Day, October 1, is the annual kick-off of Vegetarian Awareness Month. Vegetarian diets have proven health benefits, save animals’ lives and help to preserve the Earth. World Vegetarian Day was founded by the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) on 1977 and was endorsed by the International Vegetarian Union on 1978.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VEGETARIAN AND VEGAN
Vegetarian is a blanket term used to describe a person who does not consume meat, poultry, fish, or seafood.
This grouping includes vegans and the various sub-categories of vegetarian; however, it generally implies someone who has less dietary restrictions than a vegan.
The term semi-vegetarian is usually used to describe someone who is a vegetarian who consumes dairy products, eggs, chicken, and fish, but does not consume other animal flesh.
Ovo Lacto Vegetarian:
Ovo-lacto vegetarians are vegetarians who do not consume meat, poultry, fish, and seafood, but do consume eggs and milk. This is the largest group of vegetarians.
Ovo-vegetarian is a term used to describe someone who would be a vegan if they did not consume eggs.
Lacto-vegetarian is a term used to describe someone who would be a vegan if they did not consume milk.
Vegan is the strictest sub-category of vegetarians. Vegans do not consume any animal products or by-products. Some go as far as not even consuming honey and yeast. Others do not wear any clothing made from animal products.
[NOTE OF THE CONTENT DEVELOPER: World Vegan Day is a vegan holiday celebrated since 1994 on November 1 - an anniversary of the creation of The Vegan Society. Taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Vegan_Day [en.wikipedia.org] -The Free Encyclopedia-]
Important: Take some time to figure out for yourself, what group you will belong to when you become a vegetarian. You will want to consider both dietary and ethical reasons for choosing this lifestyle.
