Vegetarians don't eat meat and may have an animal-free diet, but they're not committed to an animal-free lifestyle (no leather clothing etc.).

Vegans get their b12 by sucking from a supplement bottle. Vegetarians get their b12 by sucking from a cow's teat (sp?).

The way I've always understood it, vegetarians won't eat meat (or fish(some people are of the opinion that fish isn't meat).<br><br>
Vegans won't eat any animal products--meat, eggs, milk, honey etc.<br><br>
Generally the difference between meat and animal product is whether or not the animal dies in the production of it--so gelatine is not suitable for vegetarians.<br><br><br><br>
I don't think it is a general animal friendly lifestyle thing, it refers specifically to the eating and many vegans do it for health reasons so have no better reason for living an 'animal friendly' lifestyle than vegetarians.<br><br><br><br>
If the general ethical sentiment is extended to everyday life (and I admit I am guilty of walking into shops and asking if they have any vegetarian shoes) vegetarians would not wear leather, because the cow dies to make it, but might be ok with wool (where vegans would not) because it is taken off a living animal.

*Apian Vegetarian (not used often): doesn't eat animals, eggs or dairy but will allow honey in their diet.<br><br>
*Strict vegetarian: eats like a vegan but might not live like one (<b>might</b> being the key word here b/c some SVs do try to live as vegan as they can while some don't). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I thought there was some discussion about this term a while back, and we all decided to call 'em "BEE-gans"!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Actually, most vegans do not have B12 deficiencies when tested...might be more likely to have B12 deficiencies, but in reality most Western vegans do not have such deficiencies.

Beegans? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> I call them mielotarians getting the prefix "miel" from the French word for honey.

So a paralellogram is really a beegan that has a group of rhomboid muscles attached to a French mielotarian? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:"><br><br><br><br>
Wow. Talk about learning something new everyday... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

I think there's a reason for why "apian vegetarian" isn't used often.
