The Oracle conducted a survey to find out how many Archer girls identify as vegetarians, vegans, or pescatarians.
According to the survey, 68% of Archer girls are meat-eaters, 15% are vegetarian, and 13% are pescatarians. However, only 4% are vegans. Additionally, 44% of the girls who do not eat meat or fish have been vegetarians/vegans for more than five years.
A study published by the Vegetarian Times revealed that 3.2% of adults in the United States identify as vegetarians. Some of the reasons that teenagers choose to follow a vegetarian-based diet include personal food dislikes and concerns about animal rights. Below are the results.
