Want to adopt a vegan lifestyle? - The Times of India | Plant Based Transitions | Scoop.it
From Natalie Portman to Beyoncé and Chris Martin, several celebs are advocating veganism. Are we ready for it? (Want to adopt a vegan lifestyle?
Yvette West's insight:

Misuse of the term Vegan, they mean Plant Based Eating not Vegan.  Vegan has the ethical component to "CAUSE NO HARM TO OTHER LIVING BEINGS"  Eating plantbased which is a component of Veganism is not VEGAN if they are still not making the animal compassion connection! Beyonce wears fur and her husband wears Elephant skin shoes, they are NOT Vegan just because they don't eat animals most of  the time.
