Shilpa Shetty Turns Vegetarian, Visits Farm With Son

Actress Shilpa Shetty recently visited a farm along with her son Viaan. Sharing this video, she also made a big announcement. She revealed that she has now decided to turn vegetarian. Sharing the reason behind the same, she told, “I wanted to reduce my carbon footprint in the environment. Over the years, I’ve realised that cultivating livestock for food, has not only destroyed forests but also been the largest sources of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous-oxide emissions. These are majorly responsible for the climate change our planet is experiencing.” She further explained the benefits of consuming vegetarian food and wrote, “Following a vegetarian diet is not only beneficial for animals, but also can actually protect us from heart disease, diabetes, obesity, can improve & also reverse cardiovascular health, and some major diseases. It’s the best change for OUR health and the health of the Planet.” She told that being a Manglorean, her diet would be incomplete without chicken or fish. And from a habit, it turned into an addiction. She said, “Ever since I adopted Yoga as a way of life, I always felt incomplete. I needed to step up... 45 years into this journey of life, and I’ve finally made the switch.”
