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
gladiators.

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?

Yeah.

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.
