Interest in Veganism Treble Interest in Vegetarian as Vegan Trend Doubles in 12 months

No stopping the rise in vegan now

According to Google trends, interest in the search term 'vegan' has doubled in the last 12 months alone having already quadrupled in the previous 4 years.

Interest in Vegan quadrupled, then doubled again since April 2015
Record number of Vegans

 VegfestUK exhibitions and festivals are seeing record crowds even though many other vegan festivals and shows are popping up in cities all over the UK and Ireland. Interest in vegan food, clothing, cosmetics and fashion as well as vegan politics has never been so high.

Similar vegan trends are being seen all over the world, not just Europe and the USA.

Treble Top 

Interest in veganism is now running at nearly three times than of the search term 'vegetarian'  . All restaurants need to re think their menus as a vegetarian lasagne just doesn't cut it anymore. Just substituting the meat for a bit of Feta, Goats cheese or Haloumi is ..Yawn, just, Yawn, too lazy.

More than double the interest in vegan , often treble vs vegetarian

Eating Out Vegan 

Eating out has never been easier with a number of Restaurant chains introducing new vegan menus. Pizza Express has had a Vegan Pizza for some time but now Zizzis has launched a Vegan Pizza with Dairy Free Cheese which has left Domino's missing the boat on their chance to introduce the vegan pizza that they sell in Israel to UK high streets.

A string of household mainstream brands have announced their intention to bring out vegan versions of their most popular products, even Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Guinness.

Dietitians the new 'Extremists'

It's only a few years ago when local government and NHS health trusts were calling Meat Free Mondays a step too far. Now health professionals are saying it's not far enough. Respected dietitians, nutritionists and dietetic scientists have become overwhelmed with the scientific evidence that is bombarding them and reluctantly overturning years of post war indoctrination and revising guidelines. Leading Dietitians around the world and public health officials in Holland are now recommending meat only 2 times a week - That's five days less a week than Paul McCartney's Meat Free Mondays,  Meatless Monday and Meat Out Days

Science uncovering inevitable truth

Scientists have discovered and isolated the distinctive taste of red meat is from haem iron that they have replicated from iron rich plants. Soon you will be able to buy a veggie burger that not just tastes like but bleeds like a piece of an animal flesh. What excuses then for encouraging and sustaining the torture of animals with your shopping budget?

London Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston Says "anyone who says they 'need' meat are deluding themselves, unless they mean it in a ' I need a drink' kind of a way

It's never been so easy to be vegan and more and more people are running out of excuses to stop increasing the risk to their health and the health of the planet as well as the inexcusable cruelty and death to millions of animals.

What excuses are there left for not going vegan?
