Popularity of Vegan Diet Growing Among Black Men

A recent article on thegiro.com explores the increase in popularity of plant-based diets among black men.

In a recent article on thegrio.com, Dr. Tyeese Gaines, the website’s health editor, explores the growing popularity of veganism amongst black men. Gaines notes that interest in a plant-based lifestyle is growing thanks to recognizable faces adopting vegan and vegetarian diets, including Texans running back Arian Foster, musician André 3000, and former boxer Mike Tyson. Additionally, the continued exposure of the health benefits of vegan diets in mainstream media has helped increase awareness. Gaines also mentions that many members of the black community are interested in veganism because it is seen as a return to the traditional, natural, or cultural eating habits of years past. Veganism has an established foundation amongst black women thanks to trailblazing publications such as Breeze Harper’s Sistah Vegan.
