Just how many full-time vegans are there?
“The available research puts the figure [of vegans] at around 1% of the USA population.”
That may not sound like a lot, but it translates into MILLIONS of vegans worldwide. If you’re a vegan or a wannabe-vegan, never doubt that there are PLENTY of vegans who can support you.
“Nearly one-quarter of Americans say that they sometimes go meatless at restaurants” … “10% of consumers say they largely follow vegetarian-inclined diets and 5% more are ‘definitely interested’ in shifting to vegetarian-based diets in the future.”
“’Meat reducers,’ ‘semi-vegetarians,’ vegetarians, and vegans are growing segments of consumers. [...] The USDA estimates show declines in red meat consumption. [and...] One in four U.S. adults (25%) is a ‘moderate’ meat consumer who currently consumes meat with ‘about half’ of his or her meals.”
