Winners of Sexiest Vegetarians of 2008 Released: New Additions and Old Favorites

A very important event held yearly. The page can be found at http://www.peta.org/feat_sexiest_vegetarians_alive.asp

Why this event is so important is that it gives legitimacy to animal rights and vegetarianism. I think what really sticks out is the quote by Anthony Kiedis, stated in the article below - "I saw some documentary footage of what happens in the factory farming of cows ... It sealed the deal," he says. Also mentioned on the PETA site from – “Kiedis recently went vegan after learning about the worldwide depletion of fish in the oceans and after a doctor recommended a healthy vegan diet for his son.”

So what we have here then is exposure to the truth of such choices and the related benefits from people who can gain serious media exposure.

Also included in the article is a full list of vegetarian celebrities who were in the running. I pasted in their names below. Check out the list. Very interesting

Pop superstar Leona Lewis and Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis were named the Sexiest Vegetarians of 2008 by tens of thousands of votes on PETA.org.

The unlikely duo beat out better known vegetarians including Kristen Bell, Emily Deschanel, Milo Ventimiglia, Casey Affleck, Abbie Cornish, Hayden Panettiere, and Jason Schwartzman for the honor.

"I am totally against animal cruelty," Lewis says. "I am vegetarian so I don't have clothes, shoes, or bags made from leather or suede or any animal products ... I'm on a mission."

Kiedis, for his part, is a vegan. "I saw some documentary footage of what happens in the factory farming of cows ... It sealed the deal," he says.
