Veganism (considered by vegans to be 'strict' or 'pure vegetarianism') is a philosophy and lifestyle that seeks to exclude the use of animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose.

Of particular concern are the practices involved in factory farming and animal testing, and the intensive use of land and other resources required for animal farming.
