A pair of PETA’s “Chili Chicks” heated up Cairo with their vegetarian message: Eating meat leads to environmental destruction, cruelty to animals, health risks, and poverty.
PETA points out that the world is already growing enough crops to feed every human being, but food that could be used to nourish starving people is instead fed to billions of chickens, sheep, goats, and cows who are slaughtered for their flesh. In addition to being extremely cruel to animals, meat production is also staggeringly inefficient: It can take up to 16 kilograms of grain to produce just 1 kilogram of meat. With the price of meat on the rise in Egypt, the best way to ensure that there’s enough food on the table is to adopt a healthy plant-based diet.
Chili Chick Nadia Montasser said it best: “PETA wants people to spice up their lives by trying a vegetarian diet. It’s an easy way to make the world a happier place for animals as well as for people. Choosing a healthy plant-based diet is the best thing that you can do for animals, the environment, and your own health.” Take the Chili Chicks’ advice: Spice up your life by going vegetarian today!
