Anderson Coping With Hepatitis
Model-turned actress Pamela Anderson claims she is largely unaffected by her Hepatitis C blood disease because she eats healthily and gets plenty of sleep. The vegetarian star and mother-of-two insists the disease, which she contracted from ex-husband Tommy Lee in 2002, allegedly from sharing tattoo needles, is kept at bay by eating avocados. She says, "You know, my liver gets better every year. I get the biopsy, and I go to UCLA where I have a great doctor: he's the head of department - he pretty much discovered the hepatitis C. "He says, I'm getting healthier and healthier, and that I should keep doing what I'm doing. "I'm not on any treatment, but I do eat a lot of avocados."
