Animal welfare group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Australia has urged lovers of all ages to go vegan for Valentines Day – and beyond. Scantily-clad PETA protesters took to the streets in Melbourne and Sydney yesterday to ask for a little love for animals well.
According to PETA activist Claire Fryer, ‘unhealthy animal-based foods’ can ruin your sex life.
‘A study published by the Medical Journal of Australia shows that as many as two-thirds of Australian men aged 45 and above have experienced erectile dysfunction (ED),’ wrote Ms Fryer on the group’s website.
‘According to Impotence Australia, 75 per cent of all cases of ED are caused, at least in part, by physical factors, including diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure or the after-effects of prostate cancer.’
Ms Fryer claimed that research shows these conditions can be prevented with low-fat vegan foods, ‘which are cholesterol-free and generally low in saturated fat. Leading physicians agree that the best way to prevent artery blockage as well as various other conditions that cause impotence is to eat a diet high in fibre, including plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
‘And if you’re looking to spice up your sex life even more, try chilli peppers, dark chocolate, berries and other vegan aphrodisiacs that will put you in the mood for love.’
