Veganism can be chosen for many reasons. Others may be afraid of animals farmed or exploited. Some may be motivated by environmental issues.
Donald Watson and other founding members of The Vegan Society first established the vegan diet in its 1944 origins. Leslie J Cross, however, was quick to point out the lack of a definition of veganism within the society’s 1944 beginnings. This was later clarified to refer to “to stop the use of animals as food, work, commodities or vivisection, and any other uses that require the exploitation of animal life.” “
The society was officially registered as a charity in August 1964. Later, however, the assets of the society were transferred to another charity. In December 1979, the society became a limited-company. Winter 1988 saw the current definition. The phraseing of veganism has been modified slightly over the years.
