“I changed my diet completely,” Williams says. “One of the things that [The Tom Joyner Morning Show] talks about a lot is that the African-American community doesn’t pay attention to our health. We are leaders in multiple cancers in this country right now. The things that I’m doing to help mitigate inflammation in my body reduced some of my symptoms of MS. I liquefy about 70% of what I eat. I eat one really good cooked meal a day. Everyone has talked about the fact that fruits and vegetables are nature’s anti-inflammatories. And the root cause of chronic illness in this country is inflammation.”
Williams says that he’s not likely to return to daytime TV, which he believes has been dumbed down since he left the airwaves, he says, over contract disputes in 2008.
“They’ve got stuff on TV, I don’t know if you want to call it talk shows, because if I see another Captain Kangaroo trying to deliver information to people acting as if the viewing audience is not even in preschool, I don’t know if you can call it a talk show. They try to give you information about medicine but they call it ‘Pin the tail on the colon.’ Come on. The viewing audience is smarter. And that’s why I’m not back. I’ve been asked to see if I’m interested in coming back and I have no interest whatsoever. Look at television today – it’s all built on one thing – conflict. I wanted to create a new thing.”
