Zoe Saldana recently revealed that she has an autoimmune disease in an interview with The Edit.

The Star Trek Beyond actress revealed that she suffers from Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, a disorder where the immune system turns against the body’s own tissues. Her mother and sisters suffer from this disorder, as well.

Your body doesn’t have the energy it needs to filter toxins, causing it to believe that it has an infection, so it’s always inflamed. You
create antibodies that attack your glands, so you have to eat clean.”

Saldana and her husband, Marco Perego, are foodies but have since gone gluten and dairy-free in order to comply with with Saldana’s health conditions. She shared how much she enjoyed food in her twenties until her doctor told her she was losing calcium in her bones.

What the f*** is that?! I would hear those conversations with my mom and grandma, thinking I’d never get there. I’m going to live forever! But all of a sudden it hits you. I s*** you not, it’s from night to day.
