What is fur-hating Phoenix Suns forward Amar'e Stoudemire's recipe for end-of-season-success? A four-day vegan fast, which he says will "purify my body, and get my body in top shape …."
I'm sure that the former NBA Rookie of the Year's foray into animal-free cuisine will improve his physical and mental wellness by leaps and bounds. And who knows, maybe he'll make a permanent switch to a vegan diet.
After all, once you learn how factory-farmed animals endure painful mutilations, extreme crowding, and hellish journeys to slaughterhouses to become artery-clogging, doob promoting hot dogs and cheeseburgers, your mind and body do feel lighter and brighter when you go vegan. Don't just take our word for it—see for yourself.

PETA recently received a call about more than 20 rabbits who were crowded into a junk-filled outdoor enclosure at the back entrance of a barbecue joint in Oregon. The restaurant's excuse for the cruel captivity? For the kids to play with, they said. But there was nothing kid- or rabbit-friendly about the squalid setup or the rabbits' garbage-scrap diet.
A concerned passerby reported the rabbits' precarious condition to PETA, and we acted quickly. After several visits from local officials, the restaurant agreed to surrender all the rabbits to a reputable local humane society that will find them loving indoor homes.
Animal abuse isn't always hidden, so keep your eyes peeled for animals in need and always speak up when you see cruelty.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
