Vegetarians Top Facts

Vegetarianism encompasses the practice of following plant-based diets (fruits, vegetables, etc. ), with or without the inclusion of dairy products or eggs, and with the exclusion of meat. Abstention from by-products of animal slaughter, such as animal-derived rennet and gelatin, may also be practiced. Vegetarianism can be adopted for different reasons. Many object to eating meat out of respect for sentient life.

Pescetarianism (also spelled Pescatarian) is the practice of a diet that includes seafood but not the flesh of other animals. A pescetarian diet shares many of its components with a vegetarian diet and includes vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, beans, eggs, and dairy, but unlike a vegetarian diet also includes fish and shellfish. The Merriam-Webster dictionary dates the origin of the term "pescetarian" to 1993 and defines it to mean: "one whose diet includes fish but no meat".

Vegetarianism by country
Around the world, vegetarianism is viewed in different lights. In some areas, there is cultural and even legal support, such as in India and the United Kingdom, where food labelling is in place which can make it easier for vegetarians to identify foods compatible with their diets. The results of a recent International survey suggest the definitions of vegetarianism vary from nation to nation. Vegetarians in some nations consume more animal products than those in other nations.
