PETA Europe Gets Out the ‘Man Boobs’

Written by PETA | September 8, 2009

The following is a guest post from PETA Europe’s Matt Goldsmith.

Always an organization to keep abreast of scientific studies, PETA Europe was particularly interested to learn that Glasgow, the city with the second-highest obesity rate of all the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries, has seen an 80 percent rise in gynecomastia (aka “Man Boob”) reduction procedures since 2007.

Now, while there might be some men in the world who for various reasons would welcome the idea of growing a pair of breasts, at PETA Europe we know that only a boob would want to go out and buy a 44DD because of obesity helped along by eating foods derived from animals.

With our newest billboard, PETA Europe is calling on the men of Glasgow to make a difference—both for their bodies and for animals.



Lose the breasts, guys: Go vegetarian!

    allot of people suffer from gynecomastia as a result of hormone imbalances during puberty… kids can be bullied all through high school and end up with poor self image. young men have committed suicide because they feel like freaks with breasts.. you can be thin and healthy and have this condition, its not necessarily caused by being overweight. and i don’t think its ok to ridicule people by putting up these billboards

    Since when was it ok to associate vegetarianism with ridiculing people. I’m vegetarian beacuse I respect other living creatures lives and feelings. Eating meat is not the only cause of obesity. Maybe you should rethink your logic here PETA.

    I agree but especially because of growth hormones. Lets not forget that a lot of pesticides are endocrine disruptors. Eat organic. If you want bigger boobs eat fenugreek.

    samantha moore false dichotomy there is a junk food epidemic in the industrialized nations and an obesity epidemic to match. omnivores have three times the obesity rate of vegns. httpwww.goveg.comobesity.asp think green. go vegan. the only compassionate choice.

    I recently saw a talk show featurng a group of obese teenagers talking with a doctor who did not pull any punches. When one boy complained that he had man boobs the doctor looked him in the eye and said “Your condition is called gynocomastia and it is caused by eating meat. The hormones injected into the food animals in this country are causing all types of problems. You can have your condition surgically corrected but the best way to treat it is to stop eating meat and become a vegetarian. Becoming vegetarian will also help you lose the excess weight but you will still need to watch the amount of food you eat and excercise.”

    this is kind of funny. but i don’t think it’s just meat thats causing obesity. i’ll admit that i’m obese but it’s not because i eat an overabundance of meat mine’s a result of a legit medical condition and so is my mother’s and father’s obesity. so don’t blame it all on eating meat.

    funny that’s meat eaters in a nut shell…hi hi hi

  • samantha moore says:

    I see we’re still ridiculing overweight people. Obesity is a relatively new epidemic in industrialized nations because people eat more of EVERYTHING that’s cheap and easy to get not just meat. I think enough vegetarians and vegans can attest to that.
