A 25-year-old woman from Whitechapel in East London has told a local newspaper that she felt angry and cheated after being diagnosed with bubonic plague, despite having adopted a vegan lifestyle 6 months previously.
Tracy Dell, a legal secretary, told The East London Gazette: "When my doctor told me I had the bubonic plague and was going to die, I was fuming.
"I've eaten nothing but plant-based food for the last six months in the belief that it would not only improve my wellness, but would render me immune to disease of any description.
"When I think that I could have been tucking into hot dogs and shepherd's pie instead of kale and Linda McCartney sausages, it makes my blood boil."
A leading nutritionist said last night: "Not only does a vegan diet not protect you against disease, it also renders you 97 per cent more likely to be punched in the face by a friend who's sick of hearing about it."
