From PETA UK: "As a vegetarian, John wouldn’t dream of eating a chicken. After all, most chickens aren’t as lucky as the cute little friends perched on John’s shoulder. The lighted-hearted ad has a serious message. Not only are vegetarians less prone to diabetes, cancer, heart disease and obesity than meat-eaters are, they also evade some of the risk of impotence because the artery-clogging animal fat and cholesterol in meat can slow the flow of blood to all the body’s organs – not just the heart. And each vegetarian saves 100 animals a year from immense suffering on factory farms, in abattoirs, in nets or on the decks of fishing boats.
“Vegetarians are also, on average, thinner and healthier than meat-eaters. Judging from the ad above, it’s obvious that John is the perfect poster boy (or man!) for a fine and fit vegetarian lifestyle!”
