The young boss Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said Thursday in an email published by Fortune magazine that he had practically become vegetarian, having decided not to eat meat if it comes from animals he killed himself.
“This year I almost became a vegetarian, because the only meat I eat comes from animals that I killed myself. So far, it’s a good experience: I eat more healthy foods and j ‘I learned a lot about sustainable agriculture and animal husbandry, “Zuckerberg wrote.
The young billionaire explained that this initiative is in the habit of taking it every year to launch a challenge – learn Chinese in 2010 for example.
“This year, my personal challenge is to be grateful for what I eat. I think many people forget that a living thing must die so that you eat, so my goal is to not let me forget it, and be grateful for what I have, “he said.
He began his experience with a lobster, dipped living in court-bouillon, then a chicken, and he now plans to hunt.
“What people choose to eat I do not have a problem, but I think that they must take responsibility and be grateful for the provenance of what they eat, instead of trying to ignore whence it comes, “said Mr. Zuckerberg.
It provides that “many” of his friends were interested in his project. “Many are vegetarian, some people like to hunt and some even of agriculture,” he said.
Fortune said he had asked Mr Zuckerberg after he announced to his friends on his personal Facebook page “I just killed a pig and a goat,” earlier this month.
