James Cameron: Only Veganism Can Save Us Now

Director James Cameron switched to a vegan diet in 2012, and has since become a vocal proponent of plant-based diets for both environmental and health reasons, the Las Vegas Informer reported Aug. 17.

Cameron became vegan in 2011, saying he was motivated by a desire to preserve the planet. Along the way, the Oscar-winning director lost weight and dramatically improved his health. At 60, James said he feels better than ever, and credits his vegan diet for his amazing transformation.

"If you’d asked me when I was 30, I would have thought, 'Your life’s over. Just get in the box, get on with it,' " Cameron told the Sydney Morning Herald. "But I went 100 percent plant-based — vegan — two-and-a-half years ago. I’ve got tons of energy. I’m fitter now. I’m running farther than I did when I was in my 20s.’’

'You Are Not an Environmentalist If You Eat Meat'

Cameron made headlines in 2012 after slamming non-vegetarian environmentalists, saying you are not an environmentalist if you eat meat (see video).

“You can’t be an environmentalist, you can’t be an ocean steward, without truly walking the walk. And you can’t walk the walk in the world of the future — the world ahead of us, the world of our children — not eating a plant-based diet.”

James and his wife, Suzy Amis Cameron, don't just talk the talk; they walk the walk. They grow about 90 percent of their own food on a 100-acre biodynamic farm in California, and founded the Muse School in Malibu, which is the first school in the United States to go 100 percent vegan. They both credit the documentary "Forks Over Knives" for their vegan conversion.

Cameron said eating meat is cruel to animals and damages the environment. "It’s not a requirement to eat animals, we just choose to do it," James said. "So it becomes a moral choice and one that is having a huge impact on the planet, using up resources and destroying the biosphere.”

Great minds think alike. We believe you have a great mind like James Cameron too. Let's encourage more people to enjoy meat-free meals to save our environment, health and animals.
