      You're "an animal person." You care about animals, and not only the
      furry, cute ones. You strive to make personal choices that don't
      contribute to animals' suffering.

      Maybe you stopped eating meat from factory farms first. Before long,
      as you experimented successfully with vegetarian foods, you decided to
      stop eating meat altogether.

      Now you're thinking about taking the next step: going vegan. You're
      ready to give up dairy and eggs. But something worries you. Can you
      ever be vegan enough?

      A post at NPR's Shots blog from March 15 shows that some vegans are,
      let's say, extremely thorough. Or, considered from another angle, just
      ... extreme.

      The piece describes a book by Reuben Proctor and Lars Thomsen about
      "veganissimo," a strong form of veganism whose adherents may go so far
      as to refuse medicines or medical products derived from animals.
      There's a lot to avoid if that's your goal. The gelatin in many
      capsules and pills is part animal, for instance, as are some hormones.
