Veggie Viagra Pops Up in Mexico City!

Some cities pass out free meals; others provide free vaccination services during the cold months or weather-emergency kits during hurricane season. Mexico City passes out free Viagra.

Wait … what?!

Seriously. Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard has planned a citywide distribution of Viagra to elderly men, aged 70 and above, who suffer from the mojo-busting health problem known as male impotence. City officials hope the free service will boost the sexual health of elderly folks, consequently making them happier and healthier.

Health is important, no doubt. But, the mayor’s plan has one elephant-sized flaw that needed to be addressed. So, we sent this letterand a copy of our “Vegetarian Starter Kit” (which is filled with cruelty-free and organ-healthy recipes directly to him, letting him know that the simplest way to combat impotence let-downs isn’t by popping pills—it’s by going vegetarian! To the mayor we say, put down the pills and promote a diet rich in colorful veggies to your city instead.

A diet consisting of animal flesh, milk, and dairy products can clog arteries and increase cholesterol levels. That’s some seriously scary stuff. Even scarier, clogged arteries and high cholesterol are among the most commonly diagnosed causes of male impotence as well as obesity, certain types of cancer (including prostate cancer), and diabetes. Luckily, a vegan diet can help reduce or prevent these ailments! So, why pop a pill for a night of happiness when simply switching to a vegetarian diet can trigger a lifetime of health and happiness?

    Hi I live in Mexico city I am a human dentist but i do voluntary work in Chapultepec Zoo some of the animals are rescues from circus and they treat them kindly they do not make them work or anything. Sadly idiots like Marcelo Ebrard steal the money destinated to the animals. There is no PETA in Mexico.Weve made walks and protests for animal rights but does not seem to work and there is A LOT OF CRUELTY on animals over here and shelters in bad conditions. What can I do?any sugestions?Thanx Jenny

    I wish more people were impotent and stayed that way instead of turning to viagra. Then perhaps this would help the human overpopulation and I’m all for that!

    I joined PETA a few months ago and am grateful that such an organisation exists for the protection of animals througout the world. I also subscribe to several other charities on a monthly basis. However I have not seen anything in their literature about the dolphins in Denmark that are slaughtered every year. I recently saw a picture of this carnage and the sea where these poor intelligent beings lay dying ran red with their blood. These are creatures that are on record as coming to the aid of man many times. Please put my mind at rest and let me know that someone somewhere is doing something about this. Shame on Denmark.

    Marcelo Ebrad sucks! He is doing a lot of stupid things because he wants to be president in 2012!! GOOD HELP US!! He doesnt care animals or nature. I live in mexico city and believe me that he gave up with the viagras idea.
