'You Are What You Eat' Message Shows Oklahoma Eaters Why Not to Pig Out

Oklahoma City -- The Trust for America's Health just released
its 2012 F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America's Future report—and
Oklahoma currently ranks among the top 10 states with the fattest citizens in
the nation. If current trends do not change, it will have an obesity rate of
more than 60 percent in 2030. But Oklahomans can avert this dire prognosis
simply by changing their eating habits—and to help them do it, PETA is planning
to run a billboard
in Oklahoma City that features an image of an obese man's stomach rendered to
look like a pig and reads, "You Are What You Eat: Go Vegan."
"Going vegan doesn't mean skimping on taste, and it's
the easiest and healthiest way to lose unwanted pounds and keep them off,"
says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "PETA's billboard will
remind Oklahomans that they can save their health—and animals—simply picking up
fiber-rich, heart-healthy plant-based meals instead of stuffing themselves with
meat, eggs, and dairy products."
Meat, eggs, and dairy products contain no fiber and are
loaded with artery-clogging saturated animal fat and cholesterol. According to
the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, vegans are less prone to heart disease,
diabetes, obesity, and cancer than meat-eaters are—and they weigh 18 percent
less, on average, too. Each person who goes vegan saves more than 100 animals a
year from immense suffering on factory farms, in slaughterhouses, and on the
decks of fishing boats.

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.
