PETA's 'Lettuce Ladies'
Washington: Wearing nothing but strategically placed lettuce leaves and holding signs that read, "Turn Over a New Leaf: Go Vegan," PETA's sexy "Lettuce Ladies" will brave the cold in order to hand out delicious, free Tofurky sandwiches to passersby in Albuquerque on Thursday.

The ladies will also give out copies of PETA's vegetarian/vegan starter kit and "Glass Walls" DVDs to help people offset holiday weight gain and resolve to do better in 2013 for their health, the well-being of the planet, and animals.

On average, vegans and vegetarians are significantly leaner than meat-eaters are. Also, the consumption of meat and other animal-derived products has been conclusively linked to heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and, of course, obesity.

According to PETA activists, the meat industry is responsible for the daily suffering and terrifying deaths of billions of animals and is also a top emitter of the greenhouse gasses that contribute to climate change.

"Turning over a new leaf doesn't have to be difficult," says PETA Lettuce Lady Leila Sleiman. "With an abundance of delicious vegan choices now available, there's never been a better time to make the switch to a kinder, gentler, healthier diet."
