According to new research, most vegans and vegetarians started again consuming red meat. The research was carried out by psychologist Hal Herzog, who wanted to know why her 31-year-old daughter returned to meat after continuing veganism since the age of 13.
"The proportion of true vegetarians and vegans in the United State is surprisingly small. Only about 2% of respondents did not consume any meat 1.5% was vegetarians and 0.5% were vegans. These finding are generally consistent with other studies", said Herzog.
