Musical conductor for the Munich Philharmonic, Lorin Maazel, announced on his website that he has gone vegetarian to combat animal cruelty.

In an entry titled, “The Law of Supply and Demand,” Maazel wrote that he wanted to go public with his adoption of a vegetarian diet in the hopes that some of his nearly 250,000 blog followers would do the same.

“If only a hundred people were to pick up on my challenge, some 6,000 kilos of meat and 1,000 kilos of fish less per year would be consumed,” he wrote. “Cooked properly, vegetarian dishes are delicious….and light. Do join me….and let me know you have!”

The 83-year-old world famous maestro also listed other famous vegetarians in the post, such as Sir Paul McCartney, Natalie Portman, George Bernard Shaw, Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Ghandi, and Leonardo da Vinci, among others. He also linked to a video about a cow suffering on a factory farm and another about the effects of the fishing industry.

Maazel says he was inspired by his vegan son, Orson, to go veg, and now he too is sure to be an inspiration to others.

    Kudos to Maestro Maazel, this is truly a great step. However, if he wants to help end animal cruelty, he should go one step further and become vegan. The dairy industry is just as cruel, maybe more so, than the meat industry. Baby steps, though!

The £5 Note That Keeps On Giving

The added irony with the £5 note situation is that tallow is a slaughterhouse byproduct, in no way different to the byproducts used in roads, houses, plastics, etc
