New Atheism leadership's problem with excess weight and a vegan/vegetarian diet
A vegetarian/vegan diet can help with weight loss efforts.
The term New Atheism which first appeared in the November 2006 edition of Wired magazine, is frequently applied to a series of six best-selling books by five authors that appeared in the period between 2004–2008. These authors include Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, Richard Dawkins, Victor J. Stenger and Christopher Hitchens.
According to medical science, there are a significant number of health related problems associated with being overweight.
In the late 1990s, Dennet had coronary artery bypass surgery (coronary artery bypass surgery reroutes blood around clogged arteries to enhance blood flow and oxygen to the heart). In 2003, a a video at Ted was published featuring an overweight Daniel Dennett. In 2013, a video embedded on a The Raw Story article featured an overweight Daniel Dennett.
In 2010, PZ Myers, who considered himself a New Atheist and dubbed himself the 5th horseman of New Atheism, had health problems related to his heart. In 2017, Myers renounced the New Atheism movement.
