Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch has beaten cancer
Adam Yauch sent an email to fans via the group's official mailing list, revealing that he got help from Tibetan doctors."I'm feeling healthy, strong and hopeful that I've beaten this thing, but of course time will tell," said Yauch. "I'm taking Tibetan medicine and at the recommendation of the Tibetan doctors I've been eating a vegan/organic diet, surprisingly enough [that] was harder to do in India than it is now that I'm back home." He also talked about their new album 'Hot Sauce Committee Part 1', which was due on September 15 but was postponed after Yauch revealed he had cancer, the rapper gave an update on its release."We have not set a new release date for the record yet, but I'm hoping it'll be in the first half of next year," he explained.Yauch who was diagnosed with the disease back in July, had a cancerous tumour from his left parotid gland removed shortly after.
