Misconceptions of being vegan

Lauren Depass discovers the truth behind the most common misconceptions about being vegan

The demand for vegan produce is on the rise, with a suggested 42% of vegans in the UK only recently making the change in 2018. As more and more people begin to learn the reality of animal cruelty, the drastic health benefits a vegan diet can have, and how easy it is to make the change, the more common the word vegan is across supermarkets and restaurants. If you were to stroll into a pub five years ago and ask ‘do you serve vegan wine?’, you would most likely have been greeted with a confused look. Nowadays, many pubs and restaurants have a dedicated menu. Despite the number of vegans within the UK almost doubling from 276,000 in 2016 to 600,000 in 2018, there are still those that don’t understand what it means to lead a vegan lifestyle. Many believe this to be a generational issue, as studies have shown students are six times more likely to go vegan than their parents. If this is the case, we need to nip all of the misconceptions in the bud so future generations are able to make an informed decision based on facts, not myths.
