There are now various levels of vegetarianism – vegan-, ovo-, ovo-lacto-, macrobiotic-, Buhhist-, Jain-, raw vegetarianism, and fruitarians.

Some vegetarians even avoid restaurants that cook their food in pots and pans used for meat; they shun leather, or anything that was produced using an animal part.
