Vegans do not eat or use animal products, animal by-products, or products tested on animals. Many people do not know that vegans do not use honey either.
Vegans will not wear leather belts or shoes and will often buy their shoes from places which do not use leather in their manufacture. Thus they often wear
shoes made from vinyl or other petroleum based materials which do not allow their feet to breath. This is why vegans feet will stink very badly.
The term vegan, formed from the first three and last two letters of the word vegetarian ,
was coined in London in 1944 by seven vegetarians who founded the Vegan Society.

These folks think that they are vegetarians, but are not. Perhaps they try to consume less meat than they would like, or occasionally pass up on a burger, but are not at all
vegetarians and seem to be ashamed by that fact, usually due to some sort of peer pressure.
