Ad Highlights Link Between UTIs and Chicken Consumption
Chicago -- As doctors head to Chicago for this weekend's seminar
on women's urological issues, PETA is looking to place its new "Feeling a
Little … Raw?" billboard
in the area in order to encourage women to give their urinary tracts and
animals a break by keeping chicken and other meat out of their meals. The
billboard, which shows a woman sitting uncomfortably on a toilet next to a
package of raw chicken flesh, comes in the wake of recent
research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linking
urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women to E. coli found in
factory-farmed chicken meat.
of the fecal matter on factory-farmed fowl, consuming chicken means risking
urinary tract infections," says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "If
the cruelty to birds kept crammed together for today's supermarket meat isn't
enough to make people go vegan, maybe the idea of frequent, painful trips to
the ladies' room will do the trick."
addition to carrying a risk of E. coli contamination, meat, eggs, and
dairy products contain no fiber and are loaded with artery-clogging saturated
fat and cholesterol. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics,
vegetarians are less prone to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer than
factory farms, chickens are crammed by the tens of thousands into filthy sheds
and bred and drugged to grow such unnaturally large upper bodies that their
legs often become crippled under the weight. At the slaughterhouse, their
throats are cut while they are still conscious, and millions of conscious birds
are scalded to death in defeathering tanks every year.
