Happy birthday to Olympic track and field champion Carl Lewis! The winner of nine Olympic Gold medals, he broke the world record in 1991 for the 100 meter race at 9.86 seconds.

Lewis credits his outstanding performance in part to his vegan diet, which he adopted in 1990.

There really is no good reason not to be vegan.

It’s incredibly easy to be vegan, and it’s very healthy as well (including for elite athletes like Carl Lewis, among many others).

It’s also one of the most impactful positive actions you can take to help the planet.

And, most importantly, it withdraws your support for the immense cruelty and injustice imposed on countless billions of sentient animals who are unnecessarily exploited and killed for foods and other products that no one needs.

So, if you are not doing so already, please look into these issues and go vegan.
