In the year 2011, Venus Williams was diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome -- a little known autoimmune disorder that causes joint pain. Venus decided to go vegan and do yoga to decrease the symptoms.
Her revamped diet helped the 36-year-old tennis player reduce the inflammation in her body.
In solidarity with her older sister, Serena too opted for a vegan diet.
