U.S. Vegans

Ellen Degeneres: vegan

Tobey Maguire is not going to eat this spider because he's vegan.

I recently read an article in Vegetarian Resource Group, a scrupulously scientific source of vegan nutrition and facts, about their 2009 Poll.  Their survey showed that 3.4% of U.S. adults consider themselves vegetarian (no meat at all) and .8% are vegan (1.3% if you include those who eat honey).  Similar results were obtained in 2010 when youths were polled.  With a population of almost 310,000,000, there should be about three million American vegans.  That’s a lot of people!

Some of them are famous.  Wikipedia includes a list of vegans who are actors, authors, musicians, politicians, and athletes.
