In an interview, he claims he rarely showers or washes his clothes.

And fans still want to get close to him.

Google Co-Founder Helped Fund Lab Grown Hamburger (Video)

Written by Vegetarian Star on Monday, August 5th, 2013 in Food & Drink, Research + Science, Videos.

What is being touted as the world’s first lab grown burger was served to several guests in London recently.

Reactions to the “Frankenburger” are mixed.

Some were expecting it be juicier. Another that the texture feels like meat, but without the fatty taste.

Which could be a good thing for the diet-obsessed carnivores who actually like the taste of low-fat products.

One thing’s for sure, the 5 oz. patty would have gone down a lot easier with condiments.

Kathy Freston has shared some research on how a vegan diet may prevent and increase one’s odds of recovering from cancer at the Huffington Post.

Citing several studies discussing rates of cancer among plant-based eaters vs. omnivores and factors involved in cancer growths, Freston concludes that, “We aren’t helpless at all; in fact, the power is largely in our hands. It’s on our forks, actually.”

Rosie O’Donnell spoke with Entertainment Tonight about her recent heart health scare and how she hopes switching to a vegetarian diet will help erase some of the damage she’s done to her health over the years.

“I’d like to say I had a heart attack — because women especially like to say heart event. I’m like ‘No, it’s a real heart attack,'” she emphasized. “But I’m feeling better, I’m following the doctor’s orders, and it’s totally made me change the way that I was living.”

A study found that 13% of physicians recommend a low-fat vegetarian diet for their heart patients, although it’s recommended all do. O’Donnell has chosen to follow this advice, regardless of any RX.

Kellie Pickler was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she displayed her new hairdo!

Pickler’s sleek, almost bald look was created to support one of her closest friends who was diagnosed with cancer.

“It’s just hair!” she said. “I will be honest with you, I was a little nervous and she was too. [We thought], ‘I hope we don’t have some crazy birthmark or wort or mole or something . . . but we had fun.”

Mario Batali

To say that Mario Batali is a fan of cherries is perhaps an understatement.

Ask him how he likes to prepare the tart fruit and you’ll get more answers than a fruit salad.

“I’ll take some Michigan cherries and I’ll dress them with a little extra-virgin olive oil, some chopped jalapeños, a little cilantro, and some red wine vinegar. Suddenly, I’ll have something that almost behaves like a pickle relish. I’ll put it on my sandwiches. I’ll serve it with beans and rice. I’ll put it on top of my pizza. I’ll eat it like a salad just out of the refrigerator.”
