Of course one of the most famous ”vegetarians” was Adolf Hitler but we know this not to be true.

“Author Rynn Berry, a vegetarian and animal rights advocate, maintains that although Hitler reduced the amount of meat in his diet, he never stopped eating meat completely for any significant length of time. Berry argues that many historians use the term 'vegetarian' incorrectly to describe someone who simply reduced their meat consumption” – source www.wikipedia.org

So we can breathe easy he really was ALL pure evil!
