Rory Freedman (co-author of Skinny Bitch, animal rights activist, former GwG cover model & friend who’s writing has personally changed my life) and Chloe Jo Berman (founder & reigning goddess of Girlie Girl Army, animal rights activist, and overall inspiration) have been even busier than usual this week. After Rory got into a heated debate with Fox News “Health Expert”, Tanya Zuckerbrot over the effectiveness of a controversial PETA ad, Chloe sent the following open letter to Zuckerbrot in the defense of Rory, animals & the good health of us all:
I saw you on Fox last night advocating for veal and lamb as the healthiest choices for a healthy heart and fit body. You should be ashamed to call yourself a Nutritionist. Meat is full of hormones, feces, cancers, fat, and toxins – not to mention a cruel and unnecessary “food.” You also mentioned not “feeling bad at all” about eating meat. Have you actually BEEN to a slaughterhouse? Shame on you. Why don’t you go kill a baby lamb with your bare hands, and then tell me how “wonderful” meat is. Even an idiot knows that whole grains and fruits and veggies are the optimum diet. Even a RUBE knows you can easily get B, iron, and protein from plant based sources. You are clearly just trying to get more media by playing up the “meat is so wonderful!!” card. Unfortunately, you aren’t just getting yourself press — you are hurting the American public by feeding them lies and propaganda, and killing them with your VERY dangerous advice. Haven’t you read “The China Study”? Animal protein contributes to heart disease, cancer, acne, asthma, allergies, Crohn’s disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and multiple sclerosis. I also found it funny how you said that vegans couldn’t have a higher sex drive or smell differently. There are many studies to the contrary, and as a vegan woman who has been with non-vegans – trust me – we can tell the difference. When you have carcass rotting on your insides, it definitely shows on your face, body, and affects your smell.
Rory Freedman SHINED and glowed like a gorgeous goddess next to your angry, botoxed, surgically altered face. It’s clear just by looking at the two of you what the better diet choice is. Rory clearly loves herself, and treats herself and the animals/ the planet with respect. You, on the other hand, hate yourself – only want to straighten out your curls and eliminate your ethnicity. I suppose, if you can’t find compassion for yourself, I guess finding compassion for the animals would be out of the question.
Here’s hoping your heart doesn’t look as bad as I’m guessing it does…
