Heather Mills has decided to take her vegetarianism a step further after learning about farming methods and the impact they have on the environment.
After all the news coverage she's received lately, especially concerning her divorce from estranged husband Paul McCartney, Heather Mills creates more media frenzy when she announced just now that she turned vegan.
The former model said she had decided to become a vegan after learning about farming methods and the impact they have on the environment.
"I'm a vegan now, a healthy diet which saves animals, something very important to me as I detest cruelty," Mills said while went on adding, "Following a plant-based diet not only benefits your health massively but also makes a huge difference to the planet, to animals and to feeding the world. My hope is to continue to put the message out there."
If you still wondering where Mills gets the vegan idea from, let me tell you this. Her main reason for becoming a vegan is her objection to the way milk is produced.
"It is the obscenity of taking newborn calves away from their mothers so we can have their milk, a product designed by evolution for little cows, not little people, or big people for that matter," she explained. "I could never go back to eating meat, fish or dairy. I hate the cruelty of factory farming."
