I have to admit a morbid habit I have. Every time a celebrity passes away, I Google their name with the words "vegan" and "vegetarian". I am not sure why these diets seem to be more popular among the celebrity crowd but it doesn't seem to be saving them from chronic diseases. Although I suspect their diet could be part of the problem, I am not going to make that absolute deceleration because I don't know everything about these people. What I will say is that this way of eating does not seem to be saving their lives. The latest celebrity to pass who was also a vegetarian was Michael Clarke Duncan. He died September 3rd of complications from a July 13th heart attack. He was 54. He was a vegetarian for the last 3 years.
