Much is being made of Bill Clinton’s new vegan diet, which he’s adopted for health reasons (as opposed to ethical ones). He says he’s cut out all red meat, chicken, and dairy products and now eats primarily beans, fruits, and vegetables.
I have no doubt that Clinton’s new regime is a far sight healthier than the burger-and-fries binges of yore. But let’s be clear: it’s not the absence of meat or dairy products that makes this a healthy diet. It’s the absence of fried foods, starches, and sugar (all of which could be vegan).
