After taking a year off to undergo treatment for her cancer, radio personality Robin Quivers is back in the studio with a clean bill of health. On October third, she told NBC News “I feel fantastic. I’ve been declared cancer-free for about three or four months now. It’s just a matter of still recovering at home, past all that treatment that kept me out of the studio for this long. But I’ve been feeling really good.”

Quivers credits for longtime vegan diet for keeping her strong and mostly symptom-free through the chemotherapy, radiation treatment and surgery that she received after being diagnosed with endometrial cancer last year.

The sixty-one-year-old made the switch to a vegan diet in 2001 in order to beat the obesity, diabetes and heart disease that run in her family. Since then, she has seen amazing results and has lost and kept off over eighty pounds. In her book “The Vegucation of Robin,” Quivers wrote “My plant-based diet was helping my body heal. I couldn’t believe the difference I saw. I’d never had such a dramatic shift in my health – not when I was taking medication, not when I was wearing a neck brace, and certainly not when I was eating whatever I wanted. I no longer had to rearrange my entire life around being sick.”

After seeing the miraculous changes which veganism has had in her life, Quivers is quite the advocate for plant-based diets. “If you want your body to work the way it’s supposed to, you need to give it the nutrients it needs. The solution isn’t in a pill; it’s in what you eat.”
