Rise to the Occasion This Valentine’s Day: Go Vegan

Posted on by PETA Australia

Don’t let meat and other unhealthy animal-based foods ruin your health – or your sex life: go vegan. Meat, eggs and dairy products are high in saturated fat and cholesterol, which can clog the arteries leading to all the organs, not just the heart. A study published by the Medical Journal of Australia shows that as many as two-thirds of Australian men aged 45 and above have experienced erectile dysfunction (ED). According to Impotence Australia, 75 per cent of all cases of ED are caused, at least in part, by physical factors, including diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure or the after-effects of prostate cancer.

But there’s still good reason to get excited: research shows that these conditions can be prevented – or even reversed – with low-fat vegan foods, which are cholesterol-free and generally low in saturated fat.

Leading physicians agree that the best way to prevent artery blockage as well as various other conditions that cause impotence is to eat a diet high in fibre, including plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Unlike Viagra and other ED drugs, which can cause facial flushing, nasal congestion, headaches and indigestion, vegan meals have plenty of positive “side effects”. Surveys show that vegans tend to weigh less, have more stamina and have a reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other life-threatening conditions.

Take that information to heart this Valentine’s Day, and order a free vegetarian/vegan starter kit. And if you’re looking to spice up your sex life even more, try chilli peppers, dark chocolate, berries and other vegan aphrodisiacs that will put you in the mood for love.
