Jane Velez Mitchell is Vegan

Jane Velez-Mitchell, CNN Anchorwoman, award winning television journalist and bestselling author says: 
“I’d always had compassion for animals but never really followed through. Then I met Howard Lyman, the author of Mad Cowboy who was on Oprah… I went vegan in that moment and have never looked back. It radically transformed my health – the colds I had every year went away and my energy levels went up. It’s a radically different world in terms of how people view veganism even from five years ago. It’s much more mainstream and accepted. When I started in this business a long time ago, I was considered very much a freak for my beliefs, but now I’m  part of a growing trend, and that’s great. I don’t want the exclusive on this story, that’s for sure!”
