    Icon14 Cricketing Great Greg Chappell nominated in World's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity poll

    I just saw that Greg Chappell has been nominated as Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity of the Year at PETAAsiaPacific.com! I'm a big fan of his and I'm so happy to see he has a compassionate side for animals. Make sure you cast your vote for him here: Vote for 2009's Sexiest Vegetarian Alive | PETAAsiaPacific.com
    Greg apparently made the switch in diet because of the horrific conditions on factory farms where animals are raised for food as well as the devastating effect meat production has on the environment and the great health benefits of a meat free diet. Who knew!

    Would like to disassociate myself from the sentiments expressed by the OP. Vegetarianism is not acceptable in Australian men, and Greg Chappell is not sexy. In fact, he looks decidedly unhealthy - as do most vegans. You know it makes sense.

    AWTA, what do you want him to stick on the barby, a tomato?

    Vegans do actually tend to be quite unhealthy, my dad (a doctor) was recently discussing this with me (I was saying that a friend shying away from the juicy meat these days was a disgusting turn of events) and apparently there are actually a disproportionate amount of vegans who come in with nutrition problems, lack of protein, lack of fibre, lack of some oils or another, stopped listening after a little while as Mylene Klass was on the TV in an M&S ad.

    I've often been amazed that some vegans survive TBH, but it's acknowledged by most dieticians that vegeterianism is far more healthy than omnivority (or whatever the term is).

    Just checked out the link in the OP and realized that Sreesanth (spelled Srishant) is also a nominee ...

    It's not, it's just that those of us who do eat meat tend to eat a disproportionate amount of it because it's so damn tasty. Hence the veggie type are generally healthier- but that's not to say they wouldn't be if they slipped a little chicken in their curry once in a while.

    Seems like your dad has not heard of the China study.
    The China Study - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Was introduced to it a couple of years ago by a regular marathon runner who pays a LOT of attention to nutrition, who'd been - upto reading that study - a lifelong meat eater.

    Just about 5 years ago, you could say similar things about oversized SUVs and Americans. Today, Prius is a mainstream car even in the US (and no discussion of GM fails to have Chevy Volt by the 3rd sentence).

    The environmental analogy is not only appropriate, but is also the biggest reason to rethink dietary habits.

    From the link;

    There are virtually no nutrients in animal-based foods that are not better provided by plants.

    Tall claim. One that came instantly to mind is Vit B12. Without meat, the only source is fortified drinks/foods or supplements.
