The Spiritual Vegan
Google Trends Confirms: Veganism on the Rise
"#Google Confirms: #Veganism on the Rise" I actually talked about this on my radio show this month, that I'd observed a marked increase in what #vegan products were made available to #vegans in #mainstream #supermarkets and in #restaurants; as well as the number of #vegancelebrities on the rise. This is wonderful news. _/|\_
Leonardo da Vinci: undoubtedly one of the greatest minds ever to grace this planet, he was way ahead of his time in many ways: he was a vegan! Not only did he refuse to eat meat, but he rejected dairy on the basis that “Of the beasts from whom cheese is made, the milk will be taken from the tiny children.” If that weren't amazing enough, as a young man in Florence he often bought caged birds just to release them from captivity. Yep, he may well be the founding member of the ALF!
Dexter Scott King: son of Martin Luther King, Jr. and dedicated vegan and animal rights activist since the 1980s. He once said he's vegan because "If you're violent to yourself by putting [harmful] things into your body that violate its spirit, it will be difficult not to perpetuate that [violence] onto someone else". He was also responsible for his mother's turn to veganism is the last 10 years of her life.
