Four months after revealing he had been diagnosed with cancer, Beastie Boys band member Adam “MCA” Yauch opens up about his recovery and his newly adopted vegan diet. Following surgery and radiation therapy, Yauch traveled to Dharamsala, India, to receive treatment from Tibetan specialists. It was there that Yauch transitioned into eating an entirely organic, vegan diet. Yauch writes in a letter to the Beastie Boys’ mailing list that he is now spending his downtime in Massachusetts, and his band’s latest album, Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1, will be released in early 2010, after it was put on hold so that Yauch could seek treatment.
