Vegetables to Win the War on Terrorism?

Written by PETA | March 24, 2010

chili peppers

 

We already know that vegetable consumption can help fight America’s biggest health risks, including obesity, heart disease, and cancer, as well as horrific cruelty to factory-farmed animals. But could it be that artichokes and sweet potatoes have the ability to stop terrorist activities too?

We recently told you about Ghulam Rasool Khan, the suspected al-Qaida member jailed in India who refuses to eat his vegetables. Now we’ve learned that the Indian military is making grenades that release a gas similar to tear gas—except it’s made out of chili peppers. The chili-pepper grenades are being used to immobilize terror suspects.

Seems like veggies might cramp terrorists’ style. What’s next—will U.S. troops stockpile asparagus spears? Will we walk softly and carry big carrot sticks?
