The superstar body-builder, actor and former California governor admits he used to eat 10-15 eggs a day and a lot of meat to become a champion bodybuilder. He eventually had major heart surgeries.
No more. He’s become about 99% vegan with occasional stepping out of bounds.
Arnold has learned that plants can provide superior protein for bodybuilding. So many do it. He is also now aware of the harm animal eating does to our bodies and the Earth.
To spread the word about all this, he co-produced an educational video “the Game Changers” that explodes the myth that meat and animal products are the only way to build muscle mass. It also points out:
The health dangers from eating animals and animal products like higher rates of heart disease, diabetes and many more.
The environmental damages of animal farming causing greenhouse gas emissions equal to all the emissions from all vehicles combined.
Animal wastes from factory farms are untreated and cause massive pollution.
I am disappointed that the film does not also point out the obscene treatment and suffering of animals as intelligent, lovable and loving as dogs and cats in factory farms. Hopefully Arnold will expand into this someday.
