“Stock your shelves with fruits, veggies, and grains, and try those veggie burgers and sausages you’ve seen on grocery store shelves,” Elise says in the PSA, which aired via WJLB-FM in Detroit last week.
According to the PETA news release, a vegan diet is especially helpful for those who suffer from digestive problems due to cow’s milk, “a condition affecting 70 percent of African-Americans.”
“African-American communities and low-income neighborhoods are often disproportionately affected by a lack of access to healthy, fresh food,” PETA noted. But in Detroit, vegan options are becoming ready available.
The announcement will next air in New York, D.C., Los Angeles and Atlanta.
