Best Selling Author Tryce McQuirter joined Roland Martin on “NewsOne Now” to discuss the vegan diet and how healthy eating is a social justice issue.

McQuirter explained to Martin that social justice and food are related. She credits comedian, actor and civil rights activist Dick Gregory for her turning to veganism.

“When we look at Ferguson and we look at #BlackLivesMatter, we find that the report from Operation Ghetto Storm showed that 300 Black people are killed every year from vigilantes, police officers and security officers. At the same time, the Centers for Disease Control reports that 300,000 African Americans die from preventable diet related diseases every year.”

Both of the stats highlighted by McQuirter are tragic and should be classified as crises. “That’s why it’s really important that we see what we eat as not only a personal choice, but as a real justice health issue.”
