Group Says That Eating Meat Is Linked to Impotence
For Immediate Release:
11 February 2015
Bangkok – Just in time for Valentine’s Day, a pair of sexy members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia could have Bangkok’s male meat-eaters going bananas. That’s because the vegan duo – clad in red lingerie and spiked heels – will hand out bananas, along with the message “Go Bananas in the Bedroom. Go Vegan”, to passers-by at a busy Bangkok intersection on Thursday. Their point? That eating meat leads to a higher risk of becoming impotent. And to make sure that there’s plenty of love life–saving fruit to go around, they’ll have a 2-metre-high pile of bananas on hand:
Date: Thursday, 12 February
Time: 12 pm sharp
Place: Outside Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, 939 Rama 1 Road, Wangmai district, Pathumwan subdistrict, Bangkok. (The nearest Metropolitan Rapid Transit station is National Stadium.)
The ladies want to remind meat-eaters that what goes on in the kitchen has a lot to do with what goes on – or doesn’t – in the bedroom. The cholesterol in meat, eggs and dairy products can contribute to hardening of the arteries and can slow the flow of blood to all the body’s vital organs, not just the heart. Eating meat and other animal products is conclusively linked to an increased risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity and cancer.
Eating meat also causes massive animal suffering. Chickens, cows, pigs and other sentient beings raised for their flesh, eggs, and dairy products on factory farms are treated like meat machines: they are denied all that is natural and important to them, and they are castrated and de-beaked and have their ears notched without any painkillers whatsoever. Millions are scalded to death or dismembered alive.
“PETA wants to turn clogged-up carnivores on to the wonders of ‘Veggie Viagra’ – vegetarian foods – as the easy way to make the world a happier place for animals as well as lovers”, says PETA’s Ashley Fruno. “A man who stuffs his belly full of dead pigs in the kitchen can end up boring in bed.”
