Yes, vegans take it beyond diet and into lifestyle, avoiding other forms of exploitation such as in clothing and products experimented on animals. Strict vegetarian would be the proper term for someone that avoids meat, dairy and eggs (not sure about honey) in diet and that doesn't worry about exploitation in other lifestyle choices.

My boyfriend stopped eating meat, dairy and eggs because they were triggers for his GERD. He's become more aware of the ethical side and tries to avoid exploitation in other areas of his life now too so I suppose he could call himself a vegan if he wanted to.


I'm definitely an ethical / animal rights vegan but the health and environmental benefits are a bonus.
