British comedian Jimmy Carr has lent his face and public financial faux pas to a PETA UK campaign for vegetarianism.
He sparked controversy when he was accused of being allegedly involved in a scheme to avoid taxes that got the reprimand of Prime Minister David Cameron.
But eating meat and dairy may be costlier on a country’s tax system because of the high costs of medical treatment for diseases linked to animal products.
“The British Medical Association has shown that vegetarians have lower rates of obesity, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, large-bowel disorders and gallstones,” writes PETA UK on its blog. “By abandoning animal products, meat-eaters can lower their cholesterol levels and even reverse heart disease. Also, after recommendations by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition, the Department of Health recently advised Britons to eat less meat in order to cut their risk of cancer.”
Don’t get caught in the meat eater’s scheme.
Do what the ad says ladies and gentlemen and, “Avoid taxing your system. Go Vegan.”
