Some say the college years are the best times of their lives. Deirdre Imus, radio talk show host Don Imus’ wife, possibly made one of the best decisions in her life in college.
While attending Villanova university, Deirdre became very interested in correlations between the environment and health. She soon learned a vegetarian diet played a huge factor.
“Because I was involved in athletics at school, I wanted to be as fit as possible. I learned how variations in my diet could affect my performance on the track. I paid attention to the food I ate, and it was easy to extend that concept to all the things that could affect my health, and of course, that’s everything you come in contact with on a daily basis.”
“From what I learned, I became a vegetarian, and have been for about 25 years now.”
Deirdre and Don run a ranch in New Mexico designed to give the American cowboy experience to children with cancer or blood disorders or who have lost a sibling to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The menu on the ranch is strictly vegan and only natural, non-toxic cleaners are used.
Deirdre has her own name in the business world without Don as well. She is the Founder and President of The Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology® at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, as well as the author of several bestsellng books.
