I enjoy watching Bill Maher's show, Real Time with Bill Maher, on cable channel Showtime. He has strong opinions and isn't afraid to voice them or offend anyone. I agree with a lot of his politics, which is progressive and sometimes even radical.
Bill Maher oftens touts the benefits of NOT eating meat... that plant based diets lead to a healthier life. On his shows he sometimes comments on the direct link between eating meat and global warming from factory farm pollutants. He also connects eating meat and American fast food with diseases like obesity and cancer.
From what he says on his show (2009), he seems like a vegetarian to me, actually. Maybe he is now one. He proudly shares with his audience that he supports PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Oh, and he's big on marijuana.
