Why are companies using the word “plant based” instead of just saying vegan?
Vegan didn’t exist as a word until around 10 years ago as far as I can remember. There are militant vegans who run around spray painting butcher shop and throwing rape whistlers into the back yards of slaughter house owners in the middle of the night. Militant vegans are giving the rest of us a bad name in short. Plant-based sounds better and it doesn’t have an ideology behind it. I’m a vegan because the plant-based diet is the healthiest diet.
