      [Baltimore Sun - opinion]

      As people look to live more healthful lifestyles, many are
      contemplating meat-free diets. But becoming vegan or vegetarian can
      seem daunting as people try to figure out what to eat to get all the
      proper nutrients. Ingrid Beardsley, registered dietitian at MedStar
      Good Samaritan Hospital, said the transition can be done with proper
      planning.

      What is vegan and how is it different from being a vegetarian?

      Vegans exclude all meat, fish, dairy, and eggs, meaning no animal
      products at all. Some vegans choose to avoid consuming animal
      products, while others avoid using animal products completely. For
      example, they may also avoid the use of fur, leather, wool, down, and
      cosmetics or chemical products tested on animals.

      Does age matter when considering the transition to vegan? For
      instance, is it safe for children to become vegans?
