In a video interview ,Zampa explains why he steers clear of meat, eggs, and dairy "products". "I just don't like exploiting animals," he says. "I think about the impact that it's going to have on people, on animals, on the environment. Your actions always impact someone."
Zampa isn't the only cricketer who has made the compassionate choice to eat cruelty-free - Adelaide Strikers superstar Peter Siddle, international series bowler Kane Richardson, and sporting legend Jason Gillespie all eat vegan. Athletes from all fields are increasingly coming to the conclusion that they can get all the nutrients they need from vegan foods, and they're recovering better and feeling fit and strong.
PETA India - whose motto reads, in part, that "animals are not ours to eat" - notes that vegans are less prone to suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and obesity than meat-eaters are. Each person who goes vegan also dramatically reduces his or her carbon footprint and spares numerous animals daily suffering and a terrifying death. An estimated 77 billion land animals are killed for their flesh every year in around the world. They're often strung upside down, and their throats are slit, often while they're still conscious.
