Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton Goes Vegan

Lewis Hamilton says he is aiming to adopt a vegan diet after watching What the Health. He explains that he wants to adopt the plant base diet for its potential effects on the environment, animal welfare and human health.

His main concern comes from his family’s medical history, with heart disease and cancer prevalent among his ancestors. ‘I don’t want in 10 or 20 years to have diabetes or catch any of that stuff,’ he said.

‘The cruelty is horrible and I don’t necessarily want to support that and I want to live a healthier life.’

‘By letting people who are following me know, maybe that will encourage a couple of people to do the same thing.’

In the last month Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and singer James Arthur have both announced their plans to make the positive change towards a vegan diet.

Having another high-level celebrity turn towards a plant based diet is such a positive for the vegan movement. The millions of fans who follow each of these celebrities will therefore be exposed to this important message. Hopefully, if these influential figures continue promoting veganism then many others will follow in their path.
