Last we reported, Chaka Khan was plugging her new healthy lifestyle and vegan diet. Between a juice cleanse, plant based eating and exercise, the singer has dramatically improved her health and has even been able to ditch her type 2 diabetes medication.

Khan told The Detroit News, “I had Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. So I went on a radical change of lifestyle. I was on liquids for a year, and that gave me a good jump-start. It sort of changed my whole way of thinking. You have to get the mindset first.”

In addition to going off her type 2 diabetes medication, Khan lost 60 pounds. That’s what we call a plant based win!

Other celebrities have had great success with switching to a plant based diet for their health. Bill Clinton gave up meat, fish, dairy and eggs after having to undergo a quadruple bypass surgery. Rosie O’Donnell drastically reduced her consumption of animal products after a heart attack. Plus, studies have shown that a low fat plant based diet is a better treatment for type 2 diabetes than the diet recommended by the American Diabetes Association.

Congratulations to Chaka Khan for doing so well and being able to leave her medications behind. That’s quite the health turnaround!

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
