Senator Cory Booker Goes Vegan - Mercy For Animals

Senator Cory Booker Goes Vegan

Senator Cory Booker has decided to go vegan… for the rest of the year at least.

Ecorazzi reported last week that Booker, the first vegetarian in the U.S. Senate, has officially sworn off dairy and eggs, and is compassionately celebrating the holidays with a vegan diet. A vegetarian for over 20 years, the senator attributes his recent decision to go totally plant-based to a desire to protect his health and the environment.

No stranger to Twitter, Senator Booker has been tweeted up a storm about his recent decision.

He even bought an all-vegan lunch for his staff.

And check out this video he posted to Instagram about his vegan Thanksgiving plans.

The Standard American Diet is not only unsustainable and unhealthy, it’s also
incredibly cruel. Animals on modern factory farms are subjected to extreme confinement, painful mutilations without painkillers, and violent slaughter.

Like Senator Booker, you can help protect animals, your health, and the health of the planet, by adopting a vegan diet. Visit today and get started!
