Mexican TV Star Marco Antonio Regil Urges Latino Youth to Adopt Healthy, Humane Diets to Help Prevent Disease and Obesity

Los Angeles -- In anticipation of the launch of PETA's new
website, PETALatino.com, in December, the organization has teamed up with
renowned television host Marco Antonio Regil to release a Spanish
version of PETA's video "Glass Walls"—which takes its name from Paul
McCartney's famous quote, "If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone
would be vegetarian." Regil—host of MundoFOX's new hit game show Minuto
Para Ganar (Minute to Win It) and formerly of Mexico's Atinale Al
Precio (The Price Is Right), premiered the new video in person on Tuesday at Theodore
Roosevelt High School in Los Angeles to more than 150 students. PETA
members also distributed DVDs of the new video and dished up vegan meals for
the students, courtesy of Chipotle restaurant. Photos
from the event are available here.
For the first time in California history, Latinos represent
a majority of the state's public-school students, and the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention reports that Mexican-American children between the ages
of 6 and 17 are 60 percent more likely to be overweight than non-Hispanic white
children. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, vegetarians and
vegans enjoy lower body-mass indexes, lower rates of type 2 diabetes and
hypertension, and lower overall cancer rates.
Since going vegan, Regil has felt his own health improve
drastically. "I feel younger," he says in an exclusive
PETA interview. "I go on and on, taping for hours and hours, and I
still have my energy."
"Glass Walls" reveals the extreme suffering that
animals endure every day on factory farms and in slaughterhouses: Chickens and
turkeys are confined to filthy sheds by the
tens of thousands, pigs remain completely conscious while their throats
are cut, and fish are dragged out of their marine homes and left to suffocate
on the decks of fishing boats.

De León, Kate del Castillo, Vida Guerra, Constance Marie,
Pablo Azar, and Natalia Villaveces—who have teamed up with PETA
to help animals.

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.
