Vegan Roman Gladiators

Here's some interesting news and a video clip from VegSource:

Archeologists recently unearthed a burial site
in Turkey containing the bodies of 60 Roman

Tests to their remains led researchers to conclude
the gladiators ate an exclusively plant-based diet.

In fact, researchers used the word "vegan" to describe
the gladiators.

Wait, aren't vegans those guys you see carrying
signs outside KFC protesting animal cruelty?


And gladiators ate a vegan diet, too.

In the following video John McDougall MD describes
the new find on gladiators. He also pokes fun at the
biases of researchers -- who stretch to explain why
the most powerful fighters of the ancient world ate a
vegan diet.

Of course, gladiators weren't alone.

The entire Roman army went on a vegan diet whenever
they went into battle.

Watch the video:­

Peas & Love,
