What is veganism?
A time when no vegetable
In the early years of evolution man was a hunter. And the first food to be eaten was probably animal meat, but as we know time passed and farming was invented and now the man had two options to eat. The meat of the animal and also the grains are grown in the field. It can be used as food. Now it has a wide range of food. Needless to say, human beings have not been able to give up whole predatory food. Despite having many options for food, they cannot give up animal meat. Some people decided not to eat meat voluntarily. The idea of becoming a vegetarian is just a matter of abandoning an egg or an animal. If you think that the idea is wrong, it is because there are so many products We use it in everyday life but it is an animal product. To make these things, animals are knowingly and unknowingly tortured and we do not commit this cruelty ourselves but indirectly promote it. When it comes to subtle non-violence, the concept of being vegetarian became a little broader and a new word came in 1944, and that word was vegan.
What is vegan?
Vegans strictly avoid consuming any foods or beverages that contain: meat, poultry, fish and shellfish eggs, dairy products, honey, insect rennet, gelatin, and other types of animal protein stock or fats Veganism is a stricter form of vegetarianism. Vegans avoid consuming or using any animal products or byproducts. The Vegan Society defines veganism as
“a way of living, which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation and cruelty to animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose.”
After understanding the word vegan, let’s discuss when such a word came up in the picture. One thing to keep in mind here is that the word vegan we are discussing is a much later word. It is a much more subtle idea than the word vegetarian. Because speed and not just thought is an idea of how you spend your life where another animal is least harmed.
The Vegan Society
It will be interesting to know a little about the beginnings of the Vegan Society in 1944 by Donald Watson in the U.K. by omitting half of the middle letters in ‘Vegetarian’ to define a non-violent way of living. Donald realized that the term ‘Vegetarian’ was NOT a true representative of a non-violent lifestyle as it was just a type of diet and that too involved consumption of animal-derived products like dairy, egg, honey, etc.
Which is a very cruel and violent facet of vegetarian life?
Not only that, but vegetarians also do not restrain from using several animal products & services which are not part of their diet e.g. leather, silk, wool, fur, pearls, cosmetics with animal-tested or animal-derived ingredients, circus, zoo, horse-racing, etc. Vegan is not a rule that needs to be laid down but vegan is a lifestyle that is followed for environment and animal development and life-saving. Some people think that milch animals are reared all over the world and by scientifically developing these animals.
The dairy industry is run. Some countries like Denmark are dependent on this industry. Even in Hindustani scriptures, the cow is called “Kamadhenu” and cow’s milk is given a place in Panchamrut. It is also true that if the milk is not weaned from the cow’s udder in time, it will cause a lot of trouble to the cow or any other milking animal.
The reality of the Dairy industry
The production of dairy products necessitates the death of countless male calves that are of no use to the dairy farmer, as well as the premature death of cows slaughtered when their milk production decreases. Due to prolonged time spent in these awful conditions, the lives of production animals are as bad, if not worse, than the animals raised for slaughter. Again, the focus is on profit — by minimizing the amount of space and time it takes to obtain animal products, profit is maximized. To maintain milk production, dairy cows must be repeatedly and forcibly artificially inseminated. After birth, the calves are removed from their mothers within 24–72 hours. The sooner, the better as the relationship between mothers and their calves strengthen over time and the separation is extremely stressful for both animals. Milk that is produced for the calf is harvested for human consumption and the calves are fed a powdered milk replacement. Calves born of dairy cows are used for different purposes depending on their gender. Females begin their lives as dairy cows at 13 months of age. Males are slaughtered for veal within anywhere from just a few hours old up to 4 months of age. The veal industry is a direct by-product of the dairy industry. While a cow’s natural lifespan can exceed 20 years, most dairy cows are killed by the age of 4 and sold as beef. The lifespan of a dairy cow before slaughter is dependent on its ability to produce milk. 90% of dairy cows killed are for reasons such as infertility, mastitis (infection of 1 or more udders), lameness, and low production levels.
Furthermore, let me tell you that the milk which is shown to be a waterfall of power would be true but inside that milk, we do not know how it was obtained from cow or buffalo.
Hormones inside the body of animals affect us very quickly and that is why some There are also side effects. The unhealthy saturated fat, some proteins, and the cocktail of hormones and growth factors found in dairy products are linked to a wide range of illnesses and diseases. including acne, allergies, arthritis, cancers of the breast, bowel, ovaries, and prostate, colic, constipation, coronary heart disease, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, dementia, ear infection, food poisoning, gallstones, kidney disease, migraine, autoimmune conditions (including multiple sclerosis), overweight, obesity, and osteoporosis. Cow’s milk is designed to help a calf grow into a cow in a year so it is packed full of growth hormones.
Milk is not a natural drink for humans — especially adult humans!
The health implications of being the only mammal to consume milk as adults (and not just that, milk from another species too) are becoming clear as levels of the so-called diseases of affluence soar.
Side effects of Dairy products.
people who drink cow milk have had a bad spell. Vomiting every day suffered from long bouts of vomiting, stomach cramps, headaches, severe tiredness, skin problems, and depression. Several researchers suggest that he suffered from lactose intolerance, a condition that affects 70 percent of the world’s population.
It’s not a problem for them as contrary to popular belief, most people in the world don’t do dairy! In fact, over 70 percent of the world’s population does not consume cow’s milk or dairy products; it’s not normal or natural.
About vegetarian eggs.
People who eat vegetable eggs also take this into account because in some parts of the world eggs are not considered carnivorous but also find out what happens behind preparing eggs for your diet. Similarly, in the egg industry, even ‘ethical’ or ‘free-range’ eggs involve the killing of the ‘unnecessary’ male chicks when just a day old.
I want to say the third thing.
We are well known with varakh word as compared to foil that’s why I am going to us the word varkh for this article. varakh is widely used. What is it this varakh? the ultra-thin a layer of silver that covers your sweets or paan? Maybe not! However, this ultra-thin layer of a silver leaf or ‘varakh’ as it is known, should not be taken for granted.
Investigations by organizations such as Beauty Without Cruelty (BWC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of India has revealed that the bulk of the Varkh available in the country is non-vegan and non-vegetarian besides containing harmful metals that are carcinogenic in nature.
The pounding leaves behind tissues from the animal’s skin and gut, blood, and excreta on the varakh, which makes it non-vegan and absolutely unsuitable as an offering at places of worship. so,
Varakh is a cruel product; first, because of the process involved in its production. And second, because of the presence of non-vegetarian / non-vegan substances in the finished product.
Varakh produced by a Jaipur based company Kanishka is cruelty-free and machine-made. The company provides various other sweet shops in the country. Inquire where your shops source varakh from. Kanishka Varakh is cruelty-free and machine-made, a fact that has been certified through the BWC-led investigations. According to BWC, Kanishka Varakh has also been tested by sweet shop owners and found to be satisfactory.
A spokesperson from the Kanishka company informed us that their product is ‘better’ than cruelty varakh in every possible way! So now you must have understood how cruel it is to get vegetarian eggs and milk, Strict vegans also extend these principles beyond their diet and will try, where possible, to avoid any product that directly or indirectly involves the human use of animals. These products can include: leather goods wool-silk beeswax soaps, candles, and other products that contain animal fats, such as tallow latex products that contain casein, which comes from milk proteins cosmetics, or other products that manufacturers test on animals.

A year later the British Medical Journal published a report showing that intelligent children are more likely to become vegetarians later in life. This might explain why people with a higher IQ are healthier! let’s come to body-friendly talk. An increasing number of people are turning to plant-based diets in the hope of shedding excess weight. This is perhaps for good reason.
