Rapper/actor/producer will.i.am told United Kingdom-based television program Loose Women last week that his health has improved since his December conversion to a vegan diet. Before his transformation, the 42-year-old was suffering from an array of health issues, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and a month-and-a-half long bout of bronchitis. However, since removing animal products from his diet, The Voice UK judge’s blood pressure and cholesterol have decreased “without having to take medicine,” will.i.am said. “My nasal drip has gone, both my nostrils are working—as I always had one nostril that didn’t work! No more nasal drip, (and) no more acid reflux.”
