Vegan Diet Goes Mainstream

Improved health, as well as environmental and food safety concerns, contribute to veganism’s rise in popularity.

This week, The Washington Post published an article noting veganism’s rise in popularity, due to concerns over food safety, the environment, and personal health. Veganism’s move to the mainstream can be seen in supermarket aisles stocking tofu and tempeh, as well as in school lunches—just this year, Hawaii, California, New York, and Florida legislatures passed resolutions asking for vegan options. In addition, more and more books like Skinny Bitch and Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet are ending up on best-seller lists. Veganism is gaining support from celebrities as well—heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson and Glee star Lea Michele both promote their choice for a plant-based diet.
