We all know animal rights activists, animal rights advocates are always fighting for what’s right.
But are you aware that some people in the animal rights movement actually want to make you buy animal products?
It’s the latest in a long list of issues that animal rights supporters are taking up, and the latest to be highlighted in a new study from the Centre for Ethics and Animal Welfare (CEAW).
The study, which is published in the Journal of Consumer Research, was done by the Centre, a non-profit organisation that researches the ethical and environmental issues of food.
The report looked at over 700 consumers across the country who participated in the study.
It found that over 90 per cent of respondents would consider buying a vegan product if it was not labelled as an animal product.
“Veganism is an ethical lifestyle choice,” Dr. Susan Lacey, a spokesperson for CEAW, told News.co.nz.
“It’s a lifestyle choice people make in the hopes that other people will follow.”
The results of the study found that 90 per.cent of respondents said they would consider purchasing vegan products if they didn’t have to consider animal products when buying them.
The results also showed that vegan shoppers were also less likely to have a negative experience buying animal-based products.
The majority of respondents were not concerned with the environmental impact of animal products, with only 11 per cent thinking the product would have a large environmental impact.
“Many people believe that it’s OK to buy animal-derived products, because they’re vegan, and that they’re ethical,” Dr Lacey said.
“But it’s important to remember that vegan products aren’t necessarily ethical.
And people need to be aware that they aren’t always ethical.”
One of the biggest issues with animal products is the high levels of mercury in them.
While there is no evidence to suggest that it causes cancer, there is a correlation between animal products and cancer, and it’s recommended that people avoid all meat, fish and dairy products.
According to the CEAW’s research, a small number of vegan consumers have higher mercury levels than the general population.
The researchers say this is due to a combination of factors, such as using less animal products as well as people’s attitudes to health.
“Some people are concerned that the product they’re using contains mercury because it’s made from animals,” Dr Jana Mihalovic, a clinical researcher for the CEW told Newsline.
“They’re worried about the environment and how that affects their health.”
There is also the issue of the environment.
A survey conducted by the Center found that 92 per cent said they were more likely to use organic or natural products when they bought them.
“These are products that have been used for a long time,” Dr Mihalsovic said.
There are also a number of ethical concerns that come with buying animal foods.
For example, the Centre found that 78 per cent would consider eating eggs from a factory farm, when buying organic products.
Another study from CEAW found that 86 per cent thought the environment was not a priority when it came to buying animal based products.
“When it comes to buying food, people have different priorities, depending on where they live,” Dr Gail Smith, a research scientist at CEAW told NewsLine.
Dr Lacy agrees with these concerns. “
The most important thing is to look at the ingredients and the way the food is produced and whether there are health benefits or environmental impacts.”
Dr Lacy agrees with these concerns.
“There’s definitely a concern that consumers are putting the health and environmental wellbeing of animals ahead of their personal health,” she said.
Dr Smith also said consumers were becoming more conscious of the health risks associated with animal farming.
“We’re beginning to see that many people are aware that the environment is not a top priority, but they’re also beginning to be more conscious,” she added.
“For some consumers, it may be an easier decision to go vegan.”
For people who want to go it alone, the report found that more than one in five people would consider not buying vegan products.
It is also important to keep in mind that buying vegan is not the same as going vegetarian.
“Buying vegan does not mean that you have to be vegetarian,” Dr Smith said.
“Buying a vegan food does not make you a vegetarian, because you’re not going to be vegan.
Vegans are not vegetarian.”
Vegans who are vegetarian are not only vegan but also vegan-friendly.
Dr Lace said that while vegan is a lifestyle, it’s also a lifestyle that involves many people who are vegetarians.
“To be vegan is to be part of a community that has a common understanding of the importance of food quality, and also to make an effort to be healthy,” she told Newslines.
“In the end, vegan is just an extension of what we do for a living. Veggans
