State's High Mortality Rate From Dreaded Disease Prompts Group's Action

Bismarck, N.D. -- "Eat Your Vegetables. Don't Become
One. Going Vegan May Help Prevent Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease," says
billboard. PETA is negotiating with outdoor advertisers in Bismarck to put
up the ad in November, which is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month.
Why Bismarck? Because North Dakota has the highest mortality rate from
Alzheimer's disease in the U.S., according to a 2011 report by the Alzheimer's
"It's long been known that a vegan diet is heart-healthy
and reduces the risk of cancer, obesity, and diabetes, but so many people don't
know that meat consumption is linked to Alzheimer's as well," says PETA
Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "It's essential that we use every
tool at our disposal in the battle to prevent this horrible disease. If North
Dakota residents want to lower the number of Alzheimer's deaths in the state,
going vegan may help."
Eating meat, eggs, and dairy products has been strongly and
repeatedly linked to heart disease, obesity, and diabetes—all factors that
raise the risk of Alzheimer's and dementia. On the other hand, plant foods
appear to improve brain health. According to the Alzheimer's Association, a
long-term study found that those who were obese in middle age were twice as
likely to develop dementia in later life and that those who also had high
cholesterol and high blood pressure had six times the risk of dementia.
Vegetarians have been shown to have lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol
levels than meat-eaters do.

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.
