No longer are peanuts and cracker jacks the only things veg-friendly about a sporting event. Many pro-athletes have gone vegan for health reasons, and as a result have seen an increase in their performance. Tony Gonzalez, tight end for the Atlanta Falcons recently said that adopting vegan principles has led to his major-league success. Since going veg, Gonzalez has broken two major records. Gonzalez, who also holds four NFL records, transitioned into veganism in 2007 after reading The China Study. Other vegan athletes include Prince Fielder, first basemen for the Milwaukee Brewers, and mixed martial arts fighter Mac Danzig.
