Did the health minister just go veg?

In today's local publication "My paper", there is an article on Singapore's health minister Mr Khaw Boon Wan going vegetarian. Apparently he also avoiding dairy products! Which made him more like a vegan.

Mr Khaw has recently underwent a heart bypass surgery, and has a high cholesterol problem. Avoiding animal products should have been high on his priority list right at the start if he wished to avoid the surgery. Never the less, it's never too late to quit animal products now. I hope he can continue to stay on this diet as a role model for Singaporeans.

Let's hope he can recover and discover all the health benefits of a plant-based diet (and pick up some ethics/environmentalism along the way). If so, he won't stay quiet about it. One more voice for a kinder diet. :-)

He must have read the book "CHINA STUDY" after his surgery.

i'm so glad the health minister's picking up a vegan diet. :) so many people out there think they can eat all the meat they want with no consequences to their health. hopefully people will be stirred to follow his example!

Mr Khaw, a staunch Buddhist, must have been advise by his sifu[favourite monk] to be fully vegetarian rather than being a vegetarian only on the first and
15th day of the Lunar month.

Anyway it will be a good publicity for more people to adopt a plant-based diet.
