LiLo Has Dangerous Addiction …

Published by PETA.

… to the meat of the countless cows, chickens, pigs, and other animals who suffer immensely because of her flesh fixes. So PETA is offering to help pay for Lindsay Lohan’s recovery from substance addiction—if she gives up meat. We’re also sending her the DVD “Glass Walls,” narrated by Sir Paul McCartney, and our vegetarian/vegan starter kit.

If she takes us up on our offer, Lindsay is certain to benefit too. In the U.S., eating animal-derived products exposes consumers to antibiotics, steroids, hormones, pesticides, E. coli, fecal matter, and other potentially harmful substances. A clean vegan diet can provide all the nutrients that a person needs—and all the fabulous flavors that a person wants—minus the unhealthy contaminants, saturated fat, and cholesterol that are found in animal flesh, eggs, and dairy. Plus, vegans have stronger immune systems than meat-eaters—and stay leaner than bacon and egg lovers.

And, of course, a crucial part of any recovery is showing charity to others. There’s no better way to be kind to thinking, feeling animals, the Earth, and one’s own body—three times a day—than by kicking an addiction to animal-derived products.

Sound mind, sound body—sounds great! We hope, hope, hope that Lindsay takes us up on our offer, but we also realize that addictions are hard to shake. Her many fans are watching every step she takes, so if she agrees to give up meat, she’ll not only help herself but also the many people she influences. We’ll let you know what she decides.

“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
