Celebrated journalist and game show host Meredith Vieira recently announced that she finally made the switch to a healthy and compassionate vegan diet. Almost two months ago, the former co-host of The View appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show, explaining that she wanted to become vegan but was having reservations about making the leap. Shortly thereafter, Vieira learned more about factory farm cruelty, and declared in an appearance on The Chew that she now adheres to a vegan diet.
On The Chew, Vieira told acclaimed Chef Mario Batali that her decision was a mostly ethical and moral one. "I've done a lot of stories on the way food is, you know, processed in this country - animals - and it's very disturbing."
Vieira joins the growing number of high-profile celebrities who have also chosen to adopt a kind and compassionate vegan lifestyle, including Russell Simmons, Alicia Silverstone, Ellen Degeneres, Ozzy Osbourne, Mike Tyson, and Emily Deschanel.
