Bill Clinton Named PETA’s ‘Person Of The Year’

Back in early September, former President Bill Clinton confirmed in an interview that he was eating a “mostly” vegan diet in an effort to turnaround his health and add years to his life.

“I’m trying to be one of those experimenters,” he said. “Since 1986, several hundred people who have tried essentially a plant-based diet, not ingesting any cholesterol from any source, has seen their bodies start to heal themselves — break up the arterial blockage, break up the calcium deposits around the heart. 82 percent of the people who have done this have had this result, so I want to see if I can be one of them.”

After that interview, the media went gaga wanting to know all about his diet; which the 64-year-old was all to happy to share. For bringing awareness to plant-based diets in a big way, PETA is honoring Clinton with their 2010 Person of the Year Award.

“Bill Clinton won not only because he’s the most prominent person to go vegan this year but also because he used his platform to articulate the reasons why a plant-based diet is the most healthy diet,” says PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews. “And of course, it doesn’t hurt that he has Chelsea’s lead to follow. She went vegan at 10, though her motivation was simply not wanting to support cruelty to animals.”

Here’s to hoping Bill sticks with his “experiment” — especially with PETA’s 2011 Sexiest Celebrity Vegetarian title still up for grabs.

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
