Veganism is based on the belief and philosophy that involves embracing a cruelty- free lifestyle.
It's pretty clearly defined, really. Vegans don't EVER use animals for their own purposes (food or otherwise) where it can be safely avoided. I state that qualifier, because people often have to take medications that are tested on animals or have some animal ingredients, and these may be needed for survival, when all other alternatives have been exhausted.
Food choices are the area in which free people have much choice. Vegans choose not to consume animal products, at all.
