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.
