PETA – Save the Whales, Lose the Blubber
Do over weight people have to be attacked from all angles? The usually half naked protesters for vegetarianism decide to beat up on the Obese folks in our society who struggle each day trying to lose weight. Others are happy with their shape and have no desire to look like a skeleton. These are the same folks that spend time in Rehab facilities because, Drug and Alcohol use is a disease. So they come out with a “PETA’s list of the top vegetarian-friendly rehab centers.” Anyone look at a vegetarian lately? Get some color when your at the beach, eat some meat!
Their press release says,
A new PETA billboard campaign that was just launched in Jacksonville reminds people who are struggling to lose weight — and who want to have enough energy to chase a beach ball — that going vegetarian can be an effective way to shed those extra pounds that keep them from looking good in a bikini. The ad shows a woman whose “blubber” is spilling over the sides of her swimsuit bottom and features the tagline “Save the Whales. Lose the Blubber: Go Vegetarian. PETA.”
Anyone wishing to achieve a hot “beach bod” is reminded that studies show that vegetarians are, on average, about 10 to 20 pounds lighter than meat-eaters. The meat habit can ruin the fun in other ways too. Consuming meat and dairy products is conclusively linked to heart disease, diabetes, and several kinds of cancer — not to mention higher rates of infertility in women and impotence in men. And not only is following a healthy plant-based diet good for the environment, it is also the best thing that anyone can do to help stop the routine abuse of animals raised and killed for food. Animals on factory farms are subjected to mutilations like debeaking, tail-docking, and branding (without any painkillers) and are often slaughtered and dismembered while still conscious.
“Trying to hide your thunder thighs and balloon belly is no day at the beach,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA has a free ‘Vegetarian Starter Kit’ for people who want to lose pounds while eating as much as they like.”
Maybe a nice note to PETA.org.
