    You know Mike Tyson is a convicted rapist right?

    Wow, umm, wait... what? I'm all for people being vegan, if that's what makes them happy, but that was entirely nonsensical. Blaming your criminal behavior on your dietary choices is, well, it is a 21st Century version of the Twinkie defense, essentially.

    God bless Mike Tyson! He wants purity in his life, and a great way to begin is with a diet that respects the sanctity of all life: the animal-free vegan diet. Wishing him many happy and blessed years ahead.

    I'm not vegan but familiar with the diet and the ideals behind the diet. i think what Tyson was trying to say is that "You are what you eat" and when you eat animals (meat) you become animalistic. Animals take what they want when they get it. A human should actually think before acting, and the vegan diet taken over time calms the body and is more conducive to human thought over animalistic thought. I'm not explaining it perfectly but ... neither did Tyson!
