Joaquin Phoenix lives the Vegan Life

“Animal rights is a part of my everyday life. When you live by example, you create a certain level of awareness. Friends of mine-people I have never discussed animal rights or vegetarianism with-are adopting vegetarian habits because they see it.”
—Joaquin Phoenix

The health benefits of a vegetarian diet are impressive. Dr. T. Colin Campbell, nutritional researcher at Cornell University and director of the largest epidemiological study in history, says, “The vast majority of all cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and other forms of degenerative illness can be prevented simply by adopting a plant-based diet.” The American Dietetic Association, the nation’s largest organization of nutrition professionals, states that vegetarians have lower rates of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and other health problems. By adopting a nutritious vegan diet, you will likely lose unwanted weight, have more energy, and dramatically lower your risk of various diseases.
