78-Year-Old Vegan Male Bodybuilder, Jim Morris, Will Make You Reconsider Your Diet

Meet 78-year-old vegan male bodybuilder Jim Morris, who is PETA's most senior pin-up. And boy is he a picture of health. Jim posed as iconic statue 'The Thinker' for PETA while aged 77, which forms part of his brand-new campaign that 'Think Before You Eat'. The ad, which can be seen here, goes on to encourage viewers to "muscle your way to better health" – and a reduced risk of obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes and strokes – by going vegan.

Nineteen years deep into a lifelong commitment to avoid eating anything from an animal. In following this moral code I have found myself at protests turned riots, donning cow costumes at meat processing conventions, and creeping into slaughterhouses in complete darkness to film the inhumane treatment of animals. When I was arrested in 1998 and faced “Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act” (AETA) charges that could have put me in prison for 82 years, I chose an underground life over a potential life sentence. I became a fugitive on the run from the FBI until 2005, when I was arrested and sentenced to two years in prison for releasing thousands of minks from fur farms.
