- Rafael Rosell poses as a shirtless angel for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) campaign
- Rosell encourages people to be vegans
- Campaign aims to expose the suffering of animals in the industrialized meat and dairy industries
People are being urged to be vegetarians by actor and model Rafael Rosell — who had posed as a shirtless angel for a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) campaign.
In a PEP article that was posted on GMA News, it was disclosed that Rosell encourages people to become angels for animals in PETA’s new pro-vegan campaign. The campaign was created to help expose the suffering of animals in the industrialized meat and dairy industries.
PETA wants to remind people through the campaign that eating plant-based meals saves dozens of animals from immense pain and terrifying death.
Rosell, who is currently part of the GMA evening drama “Because of You”, has been a vegan for years now and having a healthy lifestyle made him the perfect candidate to model and make a difference in this ad.
“The most powerful way to be an angel for animals is to stop eating them and their byproducts such as eggs and dairy. I urge everyone to go vegan and enjoy blissful, cruelty-free versions of traditional Filipino dishes such as vegetable kare-kare and tofu sisig,” Rosell said.
As pointed out by PETA Asia who believes that “animals are not ours to eat”, going all-out vegan is another great way to boost one’s health, and people who eat more vegetables are less likely to suffer heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer and obesity than meat-eaters do.
But most of all, it was disclosed that going vegan is not just being healthy. Rather, it also contributes to making the world a better place — which means there’s no harm if we would go and try to know more about being pro-vegan.
Vegans and Vegetarians
As explained on Diffen, ‘neither vegans nor vegetarians eat meat. However, while vegetarians tend to consume dairy products and eggs, a vegan avoids all animal products, including eggs and dairy, and often inedible animal-based products, such as leather, wool, and silk. While vegetarianism is usually referred to as a diet, veganism is looked at as a lifestyle. Vegetarians often choose their diet based on its reported health benefits or for religious or political reasons. In general, vegans have much stronger political beliefs regarding their diet; with some believing animals should be protected under many of the same laws that humans are.’
