PETA Spices Up Cinco de Mayo Fest

Published by PETA.

PETA’s sexy señoritas—wearing little more than chili-pepper bikinis—converged on the National Mall in time for the National Cinco de Mayo Festival, bearing signs reading, “Spice Up Your Life: Go Vegan.” The ladies handed out free vegan starter kits in English and Spanish, along with a reminder to festivalgoers that going vegan can lead to better health and a sizzling physique.

By going flesh-free, vegans spare animals suffering and reduce their own risk of developing heart disease, obesity, strokes, and diabetes—lifestyle-related diseases that continue to affect the U.S. Latino community at a high rate. On average, vegans are slimmer than meat eaters are, and they have lower rates of impotence, as cholesterol and animal fat have been shown to slow the flow of blood to all the body’s vital organs—not just to the heart. PETA encourages all caring people to go vegan—for the sake of animals and for their own health.
