I’m Dr. Barry Taylor. I’m 52, a veterinarian and I’ve been vegan for over 30 years. I was recently named PETA’s Sexiest Male Vegan Over 50. I own an animal rights oriented small animal practice in central New Hampshire in the USA. I’m also an athlete: marathoner, weight lifter, boxer, snowboarder, hiker, etc. My vegan diet has kept me young, strong and healthy way beyond most meat eaters my age. It’s great to know I have cut my risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and cancer by choosing a non-violent diet, but it’s even greater to think of all of the animals whose lives have been spared by my choosing not to eat their flesh or their products over the years.
