Poll Validates Veggies

Recently released statistics show an increasing number of people are transitioning to a vegetarian lifestyle.

This year, veganism has seen increased visibility in mainstream culture, from Ellen's newly adopted plant-based diet to veggie-chomping sitcom characters. The Washington Times is reporting this week that over three percent of Americans consider themselves vegetarian, according to a 2009 Harris Interactive poll. The data shows that in regions such as the West, and among groups such as women, and young adults age 18 to 34, that percentage is actually higher. The article attributes the fast-growing number of new veggies to the public's heightened awareness of animal cruelty, changing health priorities, and concern over sustainability and environmental impact.
