Raleigh, N.C. – Vegans make better lovers! That’s the message from two PETA lovebirds as they cuddle in a bed in the heart of downtown this Valentine’s Day to remind everyone eager to please their partners that the cholesterol in meat and dairy can clog the arteries to all your organs, not just the heart.

When:    Monday, February 14, 12 noon

Where:    E. Martin and Fayetteville streets, Raleigh

“What goes on in the kitchen has a lot to do with what happens—or doesn’t—in the bedroom,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “By joining PETA and going vegan for Valentine’s Day, your body will thank you—and your partner will, too.”

PETA, whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat,” notes that meat-eaters have higher rates of suffering from cancer, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and obesity—not to mention impotence—than vegans do. And each person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries.

PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.

“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
