Some people say the hardest thing about being vegan, a person who does not eat or use animal products, is dealing with the antagonism and harassment they face. This includes interrogation-style conversations, sarcastic comments, put-downs and not-so-funny jokes. 

Andrea Monica Hug says that she's typically told that vegans are all "malnourished" and that they're "always tired and weak." In fact, she says, since becoming a vegan, she feels much fitter. In this interview, she lets off steam over how poorly informed people are about veganism. (SRF/swissinfo.ch)
