Queen legend Brain May has urged humanity to ‘radically re-examine its diet for the health of the planet, to tackle animal-welfare issues, and for the survival of the Human Race.
The musician, who went vegan after taking part in this year’s Veganuary, reposted a video from Plant Based News titled ‘Will Covid-19 Kill The Meat Industry?’.
‘Knowledge is power’
May captioned the post: “I believe this is a discussion which must now be had at the highest level in all countries…
“I strongly believe we must all now radically re-examine the whole question of humanity’s diet – for the health of the planet, for urgent ethical animal welfare issues, and for the very survival of the Human Race. For more information I recommend following these people on Instagram.
“Knowledge is power !! And … THIS IS THE MOMENT to have this discussion. If you agree – please write to your MP and tell him/her you want this discussed seriously and urgently in Parliament. Things CAN change.”
‘A central issue’
This isn’t the first time the guitarist has used his platform to promote veganism.
Last month, May told NME: “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.”
He added: “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.”
