Don’t Throw Your Health Under the Bus
Londoners in every corner of the city may soon be doing a double take every time a bus passes them. That’s because PETA is looking to place an eye-catching new ad on the back of London’s buses to ask people who are struggling to lose weight – and who want to decrease their chances of falling victim to some of the UK’s biggest killers – if perhaps it’s time to give plant-based eating a try.
We’re hoping the optical-illusion ad will highlight how meat, dairy products and eggs are making people fat and sick and that getting on the road to a slimmer, fitter body can be as simple as going vegan. Vegans are, on average, 18 per cent thinner than meat-eaters are.
Eating meat, eggs and dairy products is like packing sludge into a motor. They contain no fibre and are loaded with artery-clogging saturated animal fat and cholesterol. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in the US, vegetarians are less prone to developing heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer than meat-eaters are. Going vegan isn’t just good for your health. Each person who goes vegan drastically reduces his or her carbon footprint and saves many animals a year from immense suffering on factory farms, in abattoirs and on the decks of fishing boats.
