Banned by the UK advertising watchdog

This is the latest campaign poster by Peta who are campaining for more people to become vegetarian. According to the Guardian Newspaper it has been banned because the UK advertising watchdog say that the poster leads people to believe that Swine Flu can be caught by eating meat. Peta responded by saying

“it did not intend to suggest that eating meat caused swine flu but wanted to highlight the role that livestock production played in the incubation, development and spread of fatal infectious diseases.

Adopting a purely vegetarian diet was one of the best ways to prevent the development and spread of deadly diseases that originated from livestock production and meat consumption and which threatened public health, the organisation added.”

    The poster actually seems a bit lame to me. They have all these words in the background as though it’s a lengthy list, but there are actually only four diseases listed over and over. Meat kills in a heck of a lot more ways than that!
