Emily Deschanel Says Being Vegan Is the Most Humane Way to Live

“Bones” actress and lover of animals, Emily Deschanel, chatted with Yahoo! TV about her popular crime show and, of course, veganism.

Of the 12-question interview, 3 of the inquiries were vegan-related. Deschanel talked a little about how she went vegetarian as a teen (and later, vegan), crediting the book, “Diet for a New America,” for the change. She also added, “I do think [veganism is] the most humane and environmentally sound way to live.”

The next V-word question was, “Do you get grossed out when people eat meat around you?” She answered, “You know, there’s a certain amount of grossness, I guess, to me, but I’ve lived for 20 years with people eating meat next to me, and I have to be understanding of where they are and their choices if I want them to understand my choices. So I try to be tolerant and understanding. Yeah, it grosses me out on a certain level, but I have become used to that, I guess you could say.”

The final vegan-related question was about the connection between animal suffering and human suffering: is one more important than the other. Deschanel admitted it was a difficult question to answer, but summed it up by saying testing on animals for cosmetics is wrong, and it’s “perfectly healthy and doable” to eat a compassionate vegan diet. Her statement, “I don’t believe that animals are ours to use or to harm,” sums it up nicely.

Check out the rest of her interview here. You can catch Deschanel on the FOX crime series, “Bones,” on Monday evenings.

We need to shatter and dispel once and for all the insidious myth that it is somehow possible to exploit non-human animals “humanely.”
