He’s a professional wrestler who makes his living slamming people in the ring, so it’s no surprise this vegetarian slammed a common, asinine stereotype about meat in one fell swoop: it isn’t healthy.

In a recent interview, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling star Austin Aries discussed his decade-long vegetarian diet and what it has taught him, saying “When I made that decision it forced me to learn about nutrition, forced me to learn about the things I should be eating. It also exposed to me the corporate farming methods we use in this country and just how unhealthy it is for us as consumers. When you’re relying on corporations to feed you, you have to remember that their bottom line is making money.”

Aries goes on to say, “And if they have to compromise quality of food or the procedures of how they produce that food to make more money they’re going to do it. A lot of times the people who pay the price are the consumers or us. Whether or not a vegetarian diet is something that is for you or for everybody… I do say that even if you’re going to be a meat consumer you can do it in a more humane and responsible way, not only for the animals, but for yourself and for the planet.”
