Biography

There is this stereotype of The Vegan as a judgmental and pretentious hipster. Fortunately, while there may be a few of those types, the vast majority of vegans are just like the rest of the population, except that they have chosen to no longer kill or exploit animals. Their reasons vary. Some get into it for health, others because of environmental concerns, still others because they love animals. Some go vegan simply because they've seen the horrific violence involved in modern day animal production and want no part of it, for the sake of their own conscience.

There are lawyers, doctors, actors, farmers and even hunters who have had the epiphany and made the leap. Check out some of these captivating stories and see if you relate.
