According to wikipedia,
"Different practices of vegetarianism include:

Vegetarians who avoid consuming all animal products (such as eggs, milk, cheese, and honey)are commonly called vegans, though some reserve this term for those who additionally avoid usage of all kinds of animal products (such as leather and some cosmetics), rather than just food. ......."

Hardi,
I was reading the real definition of vegan at wikipedia and it said that vegans don't use animals products including silk and wool. So, I went to look for information of how to make silk to understand why they avoid to use silk. And to my disappointment, the silkworms are killed while they're still in their coccoons so they would not destroy the coccoons after getting out to be silkworm moths :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: . I never knew this information before. All my life I thought they made coccoons which would become silk later and then died. Now a new make sense information why vegans avoid to use silk to me.
About wool, I still don't understand why they don't use it, though. I've checked around and found nothing of sheep are being killed to make wool. Maybe, to make wool material, people have to raise sheep; therefore, sheep are not treated with care and stuff???? :? I don't know...........

How can you imagine that?I think, maybe because the wool is made from animal and that's why they avoid the usage of the wool..or maybe it just like what you've said..Heeheee...You are funny friend..I'll be fat if I laugh everyday..so i have to take vegetarian diet to make me slim again..

Heheheheheh too much laughing doesn't make you fat, too much meat does. Laughing retains your youth as much as possible. According to wikipedia about laughing,

"Laughter is a part of human behavior regulated by the brain. It helps humans clarify their intentions in social interaction and provides an emotional context to our conversations. Laughter is used as a signal for being part of a group — it signals acceptance and positive interactions. Laughter is contagious; often laughter alone will provoke laughter from others. This in part may account for the popularity of laugh tracks in situation comedy television shows. A particularly dramatic demonstration of contagious laughter was the Tanganyikan laughter epidemic, which also demonstrated that laughter can often be difficult to control and can occur, unpleasantly, when people are severely stressed.

Certain medical theories attribute improved health and well-being to laughter as it triggers the release of endorphins. A study demonstrated neuroendocrine and stress-related hormones decreased during episodes of laughter, which provides support for the claim that humor can relieve stress."

So laugh and try to be a vegetarian more :mrgreen: . I wonder if for just one day the whole world stopped killing animals, how many animals we would have saved???
