Dr. Brian Clement

This Interview Expires In:


Ingrid Newkirk is the founder and president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)—the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters worldwide. 

She is the author of more than a dozen books that have been translated into several languages, including her latest, Animalkind: Remarkable Discoveries About Animals and Revolutionary New Ways to Show Them Compassion. 

Newkirk, a former Washingtonian of the Year, has been featured for her work for animals in The New Yorker, Time magazine, People magazine, Forbes, the Financial Times, and numerous other publications. She has appeared on TV shows and podcasts all over the world, including on Real Time With Bill Maher, The Rich Roll Podcast, and Here's the Thing With Alec Baldwin. She is the subject of a BBC special and the HBO documentary I Am an Animal. 


A typical American growing up in the New Jersey/New York area, Brian likes to joke that he was a pioneer in the field of obesity—he was fat even before many Americans were fat! Raised in an Irish household on the standard American diet of meat, processed foods and sugary sodas, he was unfit and gasping for air every few steps.

At an early age of 20 he began his journey to embrace a healthier way of life.  Shedding exceptional weight and leaving behind, cigarettes and grass, he finally felt himself for the first time ever.  Mature colleagues placed him under their wing and slowly led him down the road via conferences, lectures, and seminars held by some of the historic figures in the modern health movement. 

Brian has lectured in over 48 states and 28 countries, authored more than 25 books, filmed more than 2000 hours of educational material, and is one of the most prolific experts in the comprehensive arenas that manifest exceptional wellbeing. Among some of his offerings is the three volume academic series – Food Is Medicine, his popular books like LifeForce, Living Foods for Optimal Health, 7 Ways to Lifelong Sexual Vitality, Killer Fish, Dairy Deception, Sweet Disease, Emo-Spirit, and many others.
