If you made it to this post it is because you must have started wondering about the consumption of products of animal origin, right? There are many data regarding the growth of the vegetarianism and veganism in Brazil and around the world. A survey by IBOPE (2018) stated that at least 14% of Brazilians consider themselves vegetarian, for example.
But regardless of the data, the fact is that if you pay attention to your social networks, circle of friends and other groups, you will notice that the discussion about conscious food consumption and consequently vegetarianism and veganism is very common.
Still, why are we talking about so much? And why many people have decided stop eating meat, milk, eggs and use other products of animal origin? To better explain all these points, there are many documentaries on veganism and we list 7 of them, separated by categories or approaches, that can direct the discussion. Choose the one that most calls your attention and enjoy!
