Summary of Vegan Diet
Primary Information, Benefits, Effects, and Important Facts
A vegan diet has only one rule: no animal products are eaten.
This may seem simple, but many people confuse vegan diets with vegetarian diets, or believe that occasional fish consumption is okay, or have other misunderstandings.
That being said, a small number of gray-area foods have been debated. For example, honey is an animal product (and is often removed from colonies and replaced with high fructose corn syrup or sucrose), but some vegans do occasionally eat honey.
