Jammwal recently appeared in a PETA ad promoting the health benefits of vegetarian foods. “I believe that everybody should be vegetarian because it has a lot of benefits”, he says. “Being a vegetarian keeps you agile, keeps you on your toes and doesn’t make you feel lazy. I personally believe that being vegetarian is the way because I have felt the changes – I have seen myself evolve as a human being, mentally as well as physically.” And Ranaut, who recently went vegetarian, says, “We must not eat other animals. Besides, vegetarian organic food is far more healthy minus all the toxins”.
In addition to causing animal suffering on a massive scale, eating meat has been conclusively linked to heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer and obesity. And a United Nations report concluded that a global shift towards a plant-based diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change.
