Strongman Patrik Baboumian: ‘My Strength Needs No Victims’

Posted by on December 6, 2012 | Permalink

Patrik Baboumian, holder of the Strongest Man of Germany title, is a vegan. In this new video for PETA Germany, he looks to define “strength” and asks if we really have to kill in order to live.

Like many professional athletes, Patrik recognises that a healthy plant-based diet gives him the protein and nutrients that he needs to build muscle and strengthen his immune system, without clogging his arteries with saturated fat. As the video demonstrates, Patrik also knows that only cowards hurt animals and that one of the most macho things that a guy can do is to stop eating foods that cause animals immense suffering.
