Is vegetarianism the cure for all that ails us? Judging from the recent wave of high profile celebrities embracing a plant based diet, the answer seems like a resounding “YES!”

Some use it to address weight loss (as champion boxer Mike Tyson and former President Bill Clinton recently did) while others dine exclusively on meat-free fare as a way to enhance energy levels, manage diabetes, keep cholesterol levels in check or just ensure their overall longevity.

Phil Mickelson, the second-ranked golfer in the world and owner of the rights to a California burger chain called Five Guys, has just announced that after succumbing to psoriatic arthritis, he shifted over to a diet consisting of  “a lot of fruits and vegetables and some whole grain wheats and pastas”.

Mickelson says that his inflammatory joint disease – which typically results in intense pain, stiffness and lack of movement – is normally managed with an anti-inflammatory drug called Enbrel but after reading a book about vegetarianism and its health benefits, he “thought maybe it would help”.

And it certainly has! Michelson’s illness is currently in remission and he intends to stick with plant-based foods in order to ensure that he doesn’t have a relapse. Yay for veggies!
