Chances are, you’ve heard of Keith and Michael Jeffery. Keith and Michael are the duo that make up Atlas Genius, and the alt rockers have taken over the pop charts and our hearts, because, you see, these guys are devoted vegetarians who truly get it!
Initially, Keith and Michael went vegetarian for health reasons. See what else inspired these super-compassionate brothers in our interview below. Watch now!
The link between cancer and heart disease just keeps going up. –Michael
Michael really knows what he’s talking about. It’s shocking that heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S. today. Adopting a vegetarian diet, however, is one of the best things that you can do for your health! Furthermore, by eliminating meat and dairy products, a vegan diet can help maintain a healthy weight and help prevent heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
The big glaring problem is factory farming. –Keith
Keith is totally right as well. Factory farming is a HUGE issue, and in addition to being insanely cruel to animals, it’s also killing our planet. A staggering 51 percent or more of global greenhouse-gas emissions (aka “really dirty air”) are caused by animal agriculture, according to a report published by the Worldwatch Institute.
I’ve had some of the best meals since I’ve been vegetarian, like, the most tasty food. –Michael
