Beastie Boy Goes Vegan to Fight Cancer
“MCA, where have you been?”
It turns out that the (not so shocking) answer is a Tibetan community.
In July, Beastie Boys bass guitarist Adam Yauch—aka MCA—was diagnosed with cancer. After quickly having a tumor removed from his salivary gland, Yauch headed to a Tibetan community in Dharamsala to continue the healing process.
Now back in the states, Yauch is speaking about the treatment that’s helping him “sabotage” the disease. He told fans, “I’m taking Tibetan medicine and at the recommendation of the Tibetan doctors I’ve been eating a vegan/organic diet.”
Those Tibetan docs are right—going vegan is by far the single best thing anyone can do for his or her body. Our support goes out to Yauch, and we’re hopeful that he’ll be back on the road rocking out with the Beastie Boys in no time.
