Brian May links pandemic cause to people to meat consumption

Queen guitarist Brian May has been on a vegan diet since the beginning of 2020. In an interview with NME, the musician defended the non-consumption of animals. Also emphasized how the coronavirus pandemic started this way.


Brian May said about the Covid-19 outbreak:

“If you want to get deep into it. I think we should be looking again at whether we should be eating animals. That’s a central issue here. This pandemic seemed to come from people eating animals. And it’s becoming more well known that eating animals is not the greatest thing for our health.”

“I took up the Vegan Challenge in January and I’ve been three months a vegan now. To me it was an experiment, because for a long time I’d been an animal campaigner but grappled with the fact that I was still eating them occasionally.

“But to go vegan was just a decision, and I haven’t been preachy about it, but now we’ve seen more of the effects of how eating animals has brought us to our knees as a species, I think it’s time to re-examine our world in a way that doesn’t abuse other species.”

“Whether we will see that happen, I don’t know, but I think I will start to be a bit more preachy about veganism because to me it is the way forward, in so many ways.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
