In an inteview with DETAILS Magazine, boxer Mike Tyson talked about being vegan.

Excerpt from interview:

Details: I hear you're vegan now.
Mike Tyson: Yeah, it's been eight months with this vegan stuff, but I get these explosions of energy. I don't know how long they last, but they're like explosions. So powerful.

Details: Is it a calmer energy?
Mike Tyson: Oh, I don't know if I'd go that far. I don't think it's been long enough for that kind of Zen shit.

Details: So you're going to go the rest of your life without eating a candy bar?
Mike Tyson: Maybe so. I'm pretty fucking extreme.

Details: Not even a Baby Ruth?
Mike Tyson: Oh, man, that's the best. Chocolate and peanuts. Nah. I ate, like, the tiniest piece of meat, and I woke up violently sick. It was vicious pain. I was throwing up. And I realized meat's become a poison for me now.

I can't stand Mike Tyson vegan or not. His answers explain why. It would have been tasteful if Vegsource could have left the language out which I find offensive and not in tune with your website.

Who say's you have to give up candy bars? There are vegan options, Mike!

Good to see that Mike Tyson has gone vegan. However, I want to echo the other commenter's disgust with the language. I think Vegsource should set up some standards with respect to language. Edit out the words that don't belong on an otherwise excellent website and email service. At least start with the f* word if nothing else.

@Bob and @tarmale, quit being such babies and just read the article. You have a choice to be offended or not and you CHOSE to be offended. Get over it!

Bob, I guess you like men who beat their girlfriends, attack people and talk like white trash. YOU get over it.
