What is veganism?
Veganism is an attitude consisting of rejecting food or consumer articles of animal origin.

In the fight against animal abuse and the use made of them by many industries, the largest and most international association for the defense of animals is the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), in Spanish, Personas por el Ethical Treatment of Animals , a non-profit organization based in the United States, this being the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters.
PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which animals suffer the most intensely and for the time: laboratories, the food industry, the clothing trade and the entertainment industry.
The popularity of veganisms can be attributed, in part, to the rise of vegans. Motivated by health, environmental and animal welfare issues, thousands of people commit to turning their lives towards the vegan world.
For most of the people who approach the vegan world it is through food, such a positive experience that it has led them to change their lifestyle towards a vegan philosophy that reaches all areas of the day to day, greatly reducing measure the consumption and use of non-vegan products.
