PETA continues to unleashed sexy photoshoots, garnering a lot of attention. In March, they unveiled the anticipated “Ink Not Mink” campaign with Waka Flocka, followed by a special skin-baring shoot with model Vida Guerra.
Now, the animal rights organization sent out imagery to us for a new ad campaign starring model/ first and only female NBA scout Bonnie-Jill Laflin.
Standing in a locker room and wearing absolutely nothing but her beautiful smile, Laflin appears in a brand-new PETA ad that reads, “Want My Body? Go Vegetarian!”
Laflin — a former cheerleader for the Golden State Warriors and the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys — wants her legions of admirers to know that besides saving the lives and preventing the suffering of more than 100 animals every year, going vegetarian is one of the healthiest choices you can make.
According to the NBA professional, vegetarians, on average, are fitter and trimmer than meat-eaters and are less likely to be stricken with today’s leading killer diseases.
“I hope after seeing this campaign that people will … want to go to PETA.org … and see what happens to these animals in slaughterhouses,” said Laflin in an interview. “[W]hen you see these animals being slaughtered and tortured … you’ll think twice about ordering that steak.” She adds, “You can have a beautiful body … feel great, look great, and be a vegetarian.”
Below is a brief rundown of why being vegetarian is a healthy choice, courtesy of PETA.org:
Meat, eggs, and dairy products contain no fiber and are loaded with artery-clogging saturated fat and cholesterol. Consumption of animal-derived foods has been linked to heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. Heart specialist Dr. Dean Ornish has demonstrated that following a naturally low-fat, vegan diet can often reverse the effects of heart disease in people who used to eat meat and dairy products. In fact, former President Bill Clinton—who underwent coronary bypass surgery in 2004—has shed more than 20 unwanted pounds on his new heart-healthy diet, which he describes as “pretty much” vegan. Many athletes—including Jake Shields, Ricky Williams, John Salley, Rich Roll, Mac Danzig, Georges Laraque, and Bob Harper—have also adopted vegetarian diets.
