Just wondered if anybody knew whether Bruce Lee was a vegan
I saw his daughter on the Big Breakfast several years ago, talking to Johnny Vauhn and Denise Van Outen about her father. She said she was very ashamed of herself, because although he brought her and her brother (Brandon Lee) up a hundred percent vegetarian, she rebelled in her teenage years, and started eating with her friends at burger joints. She said when he found out what she was up to "it broke his heart." She claims now to be a hundred percent veggie herself.
Now, I know that some Americans use the term "100% veggie" to mean vegan, and she also said that one of the contributing factors to her father's death was an allergic reaction to a milk product in a painkiller that he took, since she claimed he had never consumed dairy products. Also, I know that in certain parts of China, and in certain traditions (Buddhist for example) veganism is far more common that it is over here. So does this mean that Bruce Lee (not to mention Brandon out of the Crow) was a vegan?
Please, if anyone knows let us all know. It would be fantastic if he was! I would love to rub that in the face of all martial artists who think a vegan has to be a wuss. (Mind you, one idiot has already said to me, "that's why he died then was it?")
