Josh HartnettLast October we broke the distressing news that Josh Hartnett had given up his nearly 20 year vegetarian diet after a doctor told him he HAD to eat meat. Obviously that doctor didn’t belong to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine!

A vegetarian since the age of 12, Hartnett said it wasn’t difficult for him to go back, saying, “It wasn’t hard at all – it’s actually pretty good stuff.”

But good FOR you?

Yesterday morning Josh was rushed to the emergency room at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles with severe abdominal pains. His publicist tells ET that Josh was kept for observation because of a gastrointestinal disorder. 

What do you think? Should Josh go back to his vegetarian ways to help prevent further hospital trips? Chime in and share your thoughts!

    If he was veg for 20 yrs, he’s already done more than most people. We don’t know exactly why he’s not feeling well. No matter what though, I hope he ends up a vegan. :)

    I was just looking at pics of him on some website a few days ago and was noticing he looks kind of sickly lately. His lips look purple and no color to his skin. Kind of ironic because I thought that perhaps he was not eating a proper veg diet. Looking at older pics he looks a lot healthier. That being said, we don’t know what is actually going on and the issue could be worse then he is letting on so perhaps we could with hold our judgement?

    What keeps happening with these articles? All the text disappears then I can only see it if I select it all.

    Why would a high-paid actor seek dietary advice from an M.D.? Especially if he’s already challenging the ‘establishment’ with being a veggie-head?!? Shouldn’t he seek the advice of a Registered Dietitian or Naturopathic Doctor for any dietary deficiencies?

    that doctor has no clue what he’s talking about! my doctor totally ENCOURAGED me going veggie.
    one time, after being a vegetarian for about ten months, i decided i was sick of it and ate some meat and you don’t want to hear the rest of that story. josh needs to stop eating meat!

    It could also be, that seeing the guys muscles which are pretty big and heavy I assume he has been weight lifting. For that kind of sport you need proteins. And since he is a vegetarian I assume he takes more supplements of proteins than non veggie weight lifters. Conclusion: Too much protein supplements can cause damage to you stomach. That’s a common problem
