Singer, Michael Bolton is looking pretty good at age 60, and it must be related to his vegetarian diet, which he adopted 42 years ago.

In an interview with DailyMail, Bolton was asked if he got his 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day. Bolton replied, “I’ve been a vegetarian for 42 years, so yes. I used to love meat, especially double cheeseburgers, but decided I didn’t want to ingest saturated fat or the hormones used in cows. I love pasta, pizza and ice-cream, but too much sweet dairy induces catarrh and affects my voice.”

DailyMail may have been seeking a more scandalous reply to their question of “Pop any pills?” to the singer. Bolton’s response was, “I take vitamin C daily, which helps with jet lag, and I travel with 100 percent vegetarian multi-vitamins in case I feel run down. I have regular medicals – once, I was low on iron and another time in B12. I adjusted my diet, took vitamins and that never happened again.”

Check out the rest of Bolton’s interview where he talks about his love of sports and his focus on personal health.

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.
