Brothers stars Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman are both vegan and both working to open the public awareness on vegetarian issues, as outlined in this article. Maguire recently wrote to Speaker Nancy Pelosi about healthier school lunches, and Portman wrote an article for the Huffington Post about the negative effects of Factory Farming. She writes:

“The human cost of factory farming — both the compromised welfare of slaughterhouse workers and, even more, the environmental effects of the mass production of animals — is staggering. Foer details the copious amounts of pig shit sprayed into the air that result in great spikes in human respiratory ailments, the development of new bacterial strains due to overuse of antibiotics on farmed animals, and the origins of the swine flu epidemic, whose story has gripped the nation, in factory farms.”
