PETA President Ingrid Newkirk released a statement in response to the World Health Organization’s new report that processed meat consumption causes cancer:
Since the World Health Organization confirms that eating bacon, hot dogs, ham, and other processed meats causes cancer, PETA is offering a free vegan starter kit and a personal mentor to anyone ready to ward off cancer as well as a slew of other health issues by going vegan. Our lives may just depend on choosing a veggie burger over a bratwurst, and PETA’s seasoned vegan mentors are standing by to help with a wealth of information on healthy, easy-to-find meat-free meals to enjoy at home or out on the town.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—has more information about vegan eating on its website.
