Veg Docs Clean Beef Fat

PCRM offers to help clean up beef fat in the Houston Ship Channel in exchange for a pro-vegan ad.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has offered to help clean up the beef fat spill in Houston, Texas, in exchange for a sign that reads, “Clean up your arteries. Go vegan.” In her letter to the shipping company, Susan Levin, PCRM’s director of nutrition education, writes, “Just as the 15,000 gallons of beef fat have shut down this major waterway, animal fat in our diets clogs our arteries.” The beef fat spill shut down nearly a mile of one of the nation’s busiest ship channels and took two days to clean up. Levin says the ad would help the residents of Houston recognize the benefits of a vegan diet. Houston is the ninth fattest city in America, according to Men’s Health magazine.
