A serious health scare can definitely whip you into shape when it comes to staying alive. Taraji P. Henson was recently forced to make a huge change in her diet to avoid getting cancer. The actress opened up about the change in a cover story for Instyle’s January issue. The ‘Hollywood Headliner’ as the magazine deemed her, revealed the shocking news she received from her doctors just last year.

Taraji had been experiencing severe stomach pains on the set of her new show ‘The Best Of Enemies’ and decided to go for a doctors visit. What she didn’t know is the news that she would receive would result in her becoming vegan.

“It took a doctor in Macon, Ga to say, “If you don’t change what you’re doing, you’re going to get stomach cancer’, I said, ‘say no more,’ So I switched everything up out of necessity. I want to live. Thank God, because I feel so much better.”
