Emily Deschanel's All About Animals and the Environment

"We couldn't think of a better person to feature smack-dab in the middle of "Meat's Not Green" week than Emily and, luckily, she was able to take time out of her busy schedule to answer a few questions."

What made you decide to go vegan? In high school, a teacher screened the documentary "Diet for a New America" based on the book of the same name. It exposes the dirty business of factory farms: the cruelty that the animals experience, the dangers of a meat-based diet to your health, and the devastating environmental impact. I decided to go vegetarian on the spot with the intention to go completely vegan when I was ready. It took me two years. I've never looked back.
