Phil Neville, Soccer Star goes Vegetarian

Phil Neville 3Manchester United legend and current team coach, Phil Neville, has decided to go vegetarian. The soccer all-star credits his wife for encouraging him to make the switch. “My wife’s been vegetarian for about four, five years now”, he says. “I promised my wife that I would try it for two weeks. … I started to feel healthier, leaner. I started to feel great!”  He also recognizes the damage that animal agriculture has on the environment and the suffering endured by animals raised for food. “I think people are understanding the benefits, not just for yourself but for … the environment”, he says. “2.5 million animals a day are being slaughtered. That is a damning statistic that we need to do something about.”
