The Vegan Learning Curve

As with most things in life, there is a learning curve for the vegan philosophy and way of living, too. Climbing the vegan learning curve generally begins with a slow start. At this stage, some people initially ridicule and reject veganism due to a lack of information and familiarity.

Typically though, most people have received less than an hour's worth of information about the vegan life and are still stuck in the slow start area. So, hang in there!
