North Englewood, Md. – Because the Washington Commanders kick off the season, PETA has plastered bus shelters close to FedExField with can’t-miss messages encouraging followers to “take command” of their lives by going vegan—a transfer that saves almost 200 animals a yr per individual and might help everybody keep away from the well being penalties of consuming meat, together with coronary heart illness, diabetes, strokes, weight problems, and numerous types of most cancers.
“The animals who turn into burgers, bacon, and Buffalo wings are sensible, delicate people who need to dwell as a lot as we do,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, a vegan for nearly 50 years. “PETA’s attraction reminds soccer gamers and followers that everybody wins once we select vegan meals, that are good for animals, our arteries, and the planet.”
Along with sparing animals a terrifying demise, every one who goes vegan shrinks their carbon footprint and their threat of creating America’s high (appropriately named) “killer ailments,” like most cancers and coronary heart illness. Meat and milk include no fiber in any way and are filled with artery-clogging saturated fats and ldl cholesterol, whereas eggs are ldl cholesterol bombs.
Chickens killed for his or her flesh are crammed by the tens of 1000’s into filthy sheds and bred to develop such unnaturally massive higher our bodies that their legs typically turn into crippled beneath the load. Pigs’ tails are chopped off, their enamel are lower with pliers, and males are castrated—all with none painkillers. At slaughterhouses, employees shoot cows within the head with a captive-bolt gun, grasp them up by one leg, lower their throats, and pores and skin them.
The messages might be discovered at bus shelters on Sheriff Highway at its intersection with Village Inexperienced Drive and on Brightseat Highway at its intersections with Evarts Avenue and Harry S Truman Drive.
