Prompted by reports that churchgoers are more prone to obesity than those who don't go to church, PETA wants to help one of the largest churches in West Virginia—the U.S.'s fattest state—become one of the slimmest. PETA is offering Chestnut Ridge Church, a mega-church in Morgantown, vegan ads to place on their pews and a yummy meatless cookout to kick off the church's celebration of life this Easter.
Eating a plant-based diet is the best way to combat obesity as well as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. To "resurrect" your own health this Easter, simply take the Pledge to Be Veg for 30 Days.
