Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has riled TV host Piers Morgan, after saying a vegan diet can help boost sexual performance.
The actor appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss her Twitter thread, which made several health claims regarding veganism.
‘Vegans make better lovers’
“Vegans make better lovers,” Anderson wrote. “The cholesterol in meat, eggs, and dairy causes hardening of the arteries (and not much else).
“It slows blood flow to all the body’s organs, not just the heart. You can improve your overall health and increase stamina in the bedroom by going vegan.
“A healthy body is a sexy body, and eating meat ISN’T healthy. It’s been linked to heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and obesity- which are major causes of erectile dysfunction.
“Going vegan can help men of all ages boost their sexual performance and reduce the risk of prostate cancer at the same time.”
Morgan responded to the claims, stating: “My problem with [veganism] is a lot of medical experts say that actually, a vegan diet is not that great for you.”
He also claimed that ‘missing out on meat’ can have a ‘detrimental effect on your general health and wellbeing’.
The TV host then derailed the conversation and branded vegans ‘hypocritical’ for consuming foods that mimic animal products such as almond milk.
Does a vegan diet boost one’s sex life?
Anderson is not the first celebrity to claim veganism improved their sex life. Last year, Australian comedian Dave Hughes revealed that switching to a vegan diet was a ‘game-changer in the bedroom’.
Hughes has been an advocate of vegetarian living for many years. But, it wasn’t until watching sports documentary The Game Changers that he ditched all animal products.
Speaking on his radio show, Hughesy And Ed, Hughes reportedly said: “Being a vegan or plant-based is a game-changer in the bedroom.” He added: “There we go. I’m claiming it.”
