One of the most famous vegans on Earth is showing just how well his body is coping with his chosen lifestyle.
Steve Jobs announced that he will not be a keynote speaker at Apple's MacWorld Expo trade show this week due to poor health. Job's has been dangerously thin for years, having been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July of 2003.1 The official word is that Job's current health is due to "a hormone imbalance that has been 'robbing' me of the proteins my body needs to be healthy."2
Proteins, huh? Hormones are stealing your protein? Now, I'm not one to kick a man when he's down, but come on... he's a vegan who's losing weight. Improper nutrition can lead to hormonal imbalances, among a very long list of other problems. So, I'm sorry, Steve, but you don't need a doctor to figure out what's aggravating your already poor condition.
As Mark Sutton from itp.net says, "Steve Jobs needs a hamburger."3
