Vegans on the increase

There are now over half a million vegans in Britain, according to the biggest ever poll. This is an increase of over 350 per cent since the last estimate 10 years ago, making veganism one of Britain's fastest growing lifestyle movements.
The study also found that nearly half of vegetarians said they would like to reduce their consumption of dietary animal products. This equates to 521,000 people across Britain, meaning there could soon be in excess of 1 million vegans.
Jasmijn de Boo, CEO of the Vegan Society, said: 'More people than ever before are acting upon the health and environmental benefits of veganism and finding out what really goes on in the meat and dairy industries and deciding they do not want to contribute to the pain and suffering of animals.'
