Dear Mindful Lifers,
The other day I got to interview my Oscar-winning friend and ally in the let’s-stop-being-jerks-to-animals cause, Louie Psihoyos (bet you don’t know how to spell his last name, though you just read it).
He talked about his new movie, The Game Changers, which approaches the whole vegan thing minus the animal compassion thing.
Hunh? That’s right: the entire movie tackles veganism in terms of health, in the view of scientists, doctors and athletes. It talks about the effect of a plant-based diet on your lifespan, your penis (or those of folks you care about), and your heart.
Waylon talks with Louie Psihoyos about his latest film, The Game Changers.
“When you eat a cow, a pig, or a chicken, you’re just mugging that animal for the protein it got from plants. Just cut out the middleman.” ~ Louie Psihoyos
The Game Changers chips away at the stereotype that “real men (& women) eat meat” as it uncovers the risks associated with a diet built around animal protein—all through the lens of top athletes from around the world.
