Miami, Fla. – In the wake of President Barack Obama’s announcement that the U.S. and Cuba are working to improve their relations, PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—is encouraging people to improve their own relations by going vegan with a quirky, Cuba-inspired video: “Another Cuban Missile Crisis.”
“Vegans have a lower rate of strokes, heart disease, cancer, and even an ‘early liftoff’ in the bedroom. Don’t wait for another Cuban missile crisis in your love life—go vegan now,” says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “Even Senator Marco Rubio can back PETA’s suggestion to go vegan today and feel the difference.”
