Roman Gladiators Were Vegan

Archeologists recently uncovered a burial site in Turkey containing bodies of 60 Roman gladiators. After testing the remains, researchers concluded that the gladiators all ate an exclusively plant-based diet. In fact, they used the word "vegan" to describe them.

But WAIT. Aren't vegans animal-loving, environment- protecting crazies who only eat tofu?

Not so. Dr. John McDougall describes the scientific findings in the following video clip, as well as how some are trying to discredit why the most powerful fighters of the ancient world (including Caesar's Roman soldiers and Alexander the Great) would opt to eat vegan.
