Real Men take on Veganism!

VEGAN ( ˈvē-gən ) = a vegetarian who consumes only plant foods, and avoids all animal products or by-products and leather, wool, fur.

Just read an interesting article in the Boston Globe! Last week, Globe correspondent Kathleen Pierce wrote about a growing trend in lifestyle changes among men looking to shed pounds and improve their overall wellness in Men leave their own mark on veganism. These men come from all walks of life; some overweight or obese, some athletes, and some environmentalist animal lovers-- but all looking to live longer, healthier lives!

Movers and Shakers among "Hegans" include Tobey Macquire, Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Moby, firefighter Rip Esselstyn, Tony Gonzalez, Alec Baldwin, Paul McCartney and of course Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton, Leonardo DaVinci, Buddha, Jesus, Thomas Edison were vegetarians! Go Veg!
