Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Future Vegetarian?

Well, im very happy that Mark Zuckerberg is paying attention to living a healthy lifestyle. It would be so hilarious if he's planning to change the layout of Facebook into green as well, lols. ^_^

He mentioned on an email interview for Fortune magazine about many people forget that a living being, the animals, has to die just for us to eat their "corpse" (sorry for the term used, dont want to be mean, but that's the truth ^^,)

The Facebook overlord tells Fortune that he's spending this year eating only meat that he kills. So, chickens, pigs, cows, goats: you're lucky cos if Marky Zuck didn't put a knife through your beating hearts with his own two billionaire hands, he wants nothing to do with you folks ^_^. This would imply, for a busy-man, since he wont be able to have time preparing and killing the animals himself, that he is mostly eating vegetarian foods, since they're easy to prepare. Zuckerberg told Fortune that boiling his first lobster was an emotionally difficult experience, so we don't have high hopes for his first day at the baby lamb farm. Baaahhh! 

Here’s what Organic Authority posted:

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he will only eat animals he actually kills himself this year in a self-imposed ‘personal challenge.’

The 27 year-old billionaire innovator and controversial figurehead of the most popular social networking website in the world told Fortune magazine in an email interview that the only meat he will eat, he will kill himself, which now includes seafood like lobster (his first kill), a pig and a goat. “I’m eating a lot healthier foods. And I’ve learned a lot aboutsustainable farming and raising of animals,” he says. “It’s easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day.”

Actively participating in where his food comes from is a way to help Zuckerberg be thankful for the food he has to eat he said in the Fortune interview: “I think many people forget that a living being has to die for you to eat meat, so my goal revolves around not letting myself forget that and being thankful for what I have. This year I’ve basically become a vegetarian since the only meat I’m eating is from animals I’ve killed myself. So far, this has been a good experience.”

Will this dietary change last beyond the one-year ‘personal challenge’ timeframe? Zuckerberg’s not saying yet, but if his emphasis on the benefits of reducing a dependence on factory farm meat can go as viral as Facebook, he could have an impact far greater than just on his own health.
