Bob Barker is well-known for his love of all animals and the planet. Whether it’s plugging spaying and neutering programs, working with the Sea Shepherd Conservation society, saving monkeys or speaking out against the Calgary Stampede, Barker is on the case.

In a new interview with the Vegetarian Times, the former “Price is Right” host details why he went vegetarian, his thoughts on Sea Shepherds, and why there is nothing better as you get older than going vegetarian.

Barker said about his change in diet, “I became a vegetarian out of concern for animals, and I was a vegetarian for a very long time before I realized that many people become vegetarians out of concern for their health. I think they are absolutely right. I think it is the healthiest way to live.” He continued, “The answer to enjoying life is nutrition. I recommend that you become a vegetarian and exercise if you want to enjoy the golden years.”

As for why he became and animal rights activist, he told the Vegetarian Times, “That all happened around 35 years ago too. I had always loved animals. I think there are millions of us that are just born with a love for animals from the first day they can remember. You don’t have to learn to love animals; you don’t have to have something special happen to make you love animals. It’s just like the way some people are right handed or left handed. I have sympathy for people who do not enjoy animals. They don’t know how much of life they are missing. I love the work that I do with animals more than anything else I do.”
