LaRaq: I used to love eating chicken wings and oxtails! My cousin and cohost, started a detox, so I joined her and went vegan for a week, then the week turned into a month. I’ve never had any pre-existing conditions, but I suffered from stress and began doing research for physical and mental support. I found out that stress was linked to eating meat and the chemicals that are being injected into the animals. I’ve been learning ever since and have committed to making veganism a lifestyle.
