Since long there was news around that Taraji P Henson is Vegan now. The actress revealed that she became vegan last year, after getting scary news from a doctor about the stomach pains she’d been having while filming her upcoming drama ‘The Best of Enemies’.

Henson said that it took a doctor to tell her that if she didn’t change what she was doing that she was going to get stomach cancer. So she switched everything up out of necessity because she wanted to live. The actress is very thankful that she did, as she feels so much better now.
