According
to the annual “F as
in Fat” report released by the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert
Wood Johnson Foundation
, nearly 35 percent of people in Louisiana have a body mass index above 30,
making it the country’s fattest state. That’s a pretty hefty problem, so PETA
came up with a proposal to help Louisianans be a little more saintly to their
waistlines and animals. We’re scoping out spots to put up this billboard around
Baton Rouge:

Vegans
weigh an average of 18
percent less than meat-eaters
, and they are less prone to heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. I’d call that a good reason for Louisianans to cry “wee, wee, wee” all the way to the produce aisle.

If you haven’t gotten your vegan
starter kit
 yet, we’ll send you one for free—no pictures of your body made up to resemble an animal required—or you can check out how
to go vegan right here
