James Cameron Promotes Veganism at Awards Gala

The director who brought Titanic and The Terminator to the silver screen, lauds the benefits of plant-based eating during his acceptance speech.

Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron was honored at National Geographic’s 125th anniversary gala last Thursday, when he received the “Explorer of the Year” award for his dive into the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench. Cameron used his time at the podium to pontificate on the benefits of his cruelty-free diet, which he has been following for the last year. “I want to challenge all of you as people of deep conscience, people who are environment stewards of the earth and oceans,” he was quoted by The Washington Post. “By changing what you eat, you will change the entire contract between the human species and the natural world.”
