Mayim Bialik Encourages Families to Toss Out Meat

The vegan actress joins forces with PETA in supporting families to ditch meat in the home and go veg.

Vegan actress, author, neuroscientist, and Mother Mayim Bialik has teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in a new ad campaign, encouraging families to get rid of meat in their homes and go vegan. In an interview with the animal-rights organization, the actress and star of The Big Bang Theory discussed her motivation behind the ad, noting her belief in having a “young Mom face” for veganism, and that a plant-based lifestyle is compatible with being a good parent and raising healthy kids. Bailik also revealed that reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals gave her the education, confidence, and conviction to draw the line at what to remove from her diet and life, and added that she no longer suffers from sinus infections after eliminating dairy from her diet.
