Mayoral hopeful Eric Adams: My vegan diet saved my eyesight — and my life

After temporarily losing his vision to Type 2 diabetes, Eric Adams turned over a new leaf — kale and spinach, to be exact. In 2016, the New York City mayoral candidate ditched his beloved burgers and went fully vegan. The dramatic diet change followed years of gorging on junk food, which doctors said contributed to an alarming host of health problems, from weight gain to vision loss.

Now, he wants residents of the Big Apple to eat their way to better health, too.
