Gladiators Were Vegan


Recommended Posts

Archeologists recently unearthed a burial site

in Turkey containing the bodies of 60 Roman



Tests to their remains led researchers to conclude

the gladiators ate an exclusively plant-based diet.


In fact, researchers used the word "vegan" to describe

the gladiators.



In the following video John McDougall MD describes

the new find on gladiators. He also pokes fun at the

biases of researchers -- who stretch to explain why

the most powerful fighters of the ancient world ate a

vegan diet.

Of course, gladiators weren't alone.


The entire Roman army went on a vegan diet whenever

they went into battle.
