V is for Vegan: Natalie Portman Has Joined the Fight, How About You?
by Mickey Z.
"Factory farming of animals will be one of the things we look back on as a relic of a less-evolved age." These are the words of vegetarian-turned-vegan Natalie Portman. After reading Jonathan Safran Foer's book, Eating Animals, the popular actress has been inspired to make the transition "from a twenty-year vegetarian to a vegan activist."
 
She writes:
 
"I read the chapter on animal shit aloud to two friends--one is from Iowa and has asthma and the other is a North Carolinian who couldn't eat fish from her local river because animal waste had been dumped in it as described in the book. They had never truly thought about the connection between their environmental conditions and their food. The story of the mass farming of animals had more impact on them when they realized it had ruined their own backyards."
