PETA To Jimmy Carr: Avoid Taxing Your System – Go Vegan

Posted by on June 26, 2012 | Permalink

Recently, PETA contacted Jimmy Carr to ask him to consider putting his face to our latest campaign. With animal products linked to obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, we hope the famous comedian can help to tout the numerous health benefits of a vegan diet by starring in a tongue-in-cheek ad with the tagline “Avoid Taxing Your System – Go Vegan”. The British Medical Association has shown that vegetarians have lower rates of obesity, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, large-bowel disorders and gallstones. By abandoning animal products, meat-eaters can lower their cholesterol levels and even reverse heart disease. Also, after recommendations by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition, the Department of Health recently advised Britons to eat less meat in order to cut their risk of cancer. We’ve included a mock-up version of the ad below. Let us know if you think Jimmy will take us up on our offer!
