Where are our vegans located?

Just curious as to where the vegans here our located. Would be interesting to see if there are any geographical patterns to veganism. I'm in Collie-forn-ya by the way.

There should be choices for Australia, the UK, Europe, Canada, Asia, the Middle East, etc. We have members from all over the world.

I suspect there are far more vegans in other parts of the world than the U.S. Americans like their meat and dairy too d*** much. :/

I would have put more choices. Unfortunately, the poll option only allows for 10 options and the US pretty much took up all those. If I get a whole lot of foreign responses, I may set up another poll just to see where all of them are. Thanks for your input, Capstan.

I've actually done some research in this area. The biggest beef consumers HAD been Argentina. They are still up there, but I believe Uruguay may have replaced them in the top spot. The Japanese also like their beef too. I believe the Danes are also the top pork consumers. Agree with your assessment though. Will do a search to see what the vegetarian statistics are for the US. I do believe the number is growing.

I just pulled some random information from the net about top consumers/producers of poultry, meat, dairy, eggs, and cheese. Not sure of the reliability of the statistics. The US is a top poultry and egg producer in the world as well as in the top running for cheese production (but not consumption). We are not the top consumers of meat though. Sadly it seems that meat, egg, and dairy consumption is steadily increasing worldwide. It is disappointing to see that India, which boosts so many vegetarians, is a top consumer of dairy.

I would encourage you to join me in southern California, but; it is very crowded and expensive here.

Texas. Fortunately there are many restaurants here that have chefs who are happy to cater to vegans... unless you go to a steak house!

Sorry for the double post, but yes sadly in India dairy is really common especially in North India. South India and Gujarat it is a little easier to eat Vegan. Many people in South India use coconut milk. It's very hard to avoid ghee too, the good news though Indian food can easily be made vegan if you are cooking at home. Many Indian vegetarians do not eat eggs so I'm surprised to see India high on the list for eggs and poultry. I know now there is a big controversy over the beef industry in India, the government wants to ban it but Christians, Muslims, Sikhs and probably some Hindu's are against the ban.

Okay we out of US members need our own categories. There are rather a lot of us. I am from a small island off the coast of British Columbia. You can only get here by ferry.
