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.
