Number Of Vegans In The US Doubles In 3 Years

by Anjali Sareen on April 12, 2012

According to a new Harris interactive study commissioned by the Vegetarian Resource Group, the number of vegans has doubled in just the past 3 years.

The study notes that seventeen percent of Americans say the “don’t eat meat, fish, seafood, or poultry at many of my meals (but less than half the time)” and another 16% don’t eat these foods at more than half of their meals (but not all the time). This indicates that even though there may not be a huge number of dedicated vegans at every meal, more Americans are beginning to take notice of the health, environmental, and ethical benefits of not eating meat and are practicing part-time vegetarianism.
