Taraji P. Henson Became Vegan Following Health Scare

Taraji P. Henson, 48, says she is now vegan, after a Georgia doctor informed her that she is at risk for developing stomach cancer.

The Empire actress sprung into action and changed her diet. “It took a doctor in Macon, Ga., to say, ‘If you don’t change what you’re doing, you’re going to get stomach cancer,’” the actress said. “So I switched everything up out of necessity. I want to live. Thank God, because I feel so much better.”

Henson is living a healthier lifestyle and planning her wedding with her fiancé, former NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden, 35. She cooks vegan treats and works out with Hayden, who runs his own gym.
