The Long Read: Why do people hate vegans?

The piece suggests that opposition to veganism can be driven by concerns about malnutrition and fear of loss of personal freedom, and may also be linked to certain ideas about traditional gender roles.

Read the full piece here. See also Tara Garnett’s FCRN blog post Has veganism become a dirty word? and the Foodsource chapter What is a healthy sustainable eating pattern?
