Why Most of Famous People doing a vegetarian ?

Why have so many of today's famous faces taken the vegetarian plunge? Many, such as Russell Simmons and Pamela Anderson, don't want to support the cruelty implicit in producing meat, dairy products, and eggs. According to Russell, "Cruelty is cruelty, whether it’s cruelty to children, to the elderly, to dogs and cats, or to chickens." Pam agrees: "Chickens, pigs, and other animals … are interesting individuals with personalities and intelligence. … What people need to understand is that if they're eating animals, they are promoting cruelty to animals." Let's face it: There's nothing glamorous about chewing on the corpse of a tortured animal.

Alicia Silverstone notes how much better vegetarian diets are for your health: "Since I've gone vegetarian, my body has never felt better and my taste buds have been opened up to a whole new world. It's one of the most rewarding choices I've ever made and I invite you to join me in living a healthy, cruelty-free lifestyle." Indeed, studies show that a vegetarian diet promotes a healthy heart—and that helps stars maintain a youthful vigor and boundless stamina while on stage, in the studio, and on the field. GoVeg.com
