Formula One champion and animal-rights advocate Lewis Hamilton has praised the health benefits of a plant-based diet to his 14.8 million Instagram followers.

The pro racer, who was recently pictured cradling a baby kangaroo hurt in the Australian bushfires, shared two images from Plant Based News’ Instagram onto his story.

The first shows how a plant-based diet can lower the risk of heart disease by avoiding plaque buildup in blood vessels. 

While the second shows the environmental impact of oat milk, in comparison to cow’s milk – which produces more CO2 emissions, as well as using more land and water.

‘Barbaric behavior’

This isn’t the first time Hamilton has used his platform to raise awareness of a plant-based diet. Early this year, the star shared an Instagram post showing animals on their way to slaughter.

He captioned it with an impassioned message, in which he spoke about the value of animals’ lives – and how he sees the slaughter of millions of animals comparable to the slaughter of millions of humans.

He wrote: “This is the world we currently live in where humans believe that an animal’s life is worth less than one of our own. The food you buy and eat today, at home or in restaurants is coming from places like this.

“This is why I went vegan, to not support this barbaric behavior and slaughtering of millions of animals. I don’t support this industry. To me, this is no different from the slaughtering of millions of people over the years during the war, it is unacceptable and we have to work together to change this.”
