In the past few years, the vegan movement has increased. Studies and inquiries about how livestock is managed have risen with the concern for animal consideration. Indeed, veganism is a lifestyle that refuses animal exploitation and so excludes the consumption of animal products. It includes meat, fish, insects, dairy products, eggs, honey, and all the products that come from animals, their exploitation, or products tested on them like (leather, fur, wool, silk).
