Pamela Anderson writes to PM Modi to promote vegan food
Baywatch icon and former Bigg Boss guest star Pamela Anderson wrote a letter on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) on Friday to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to serve only vegan food at all meetings and government functions.
In this letter, he urges Modi to lead India's fight against climate change by serving only delicious vegan foods (derived from plants) at all government meetings and functions. The animal rights group and the actor explained that raising animals for meat, eggs and dairy products causes almost a fifth of all man-induced greenhouse gas emissions.
With the innovation and agricultural history of your country, I am sure that soybeans produced in India and other versatile foods can easily replace these harmful foods, he writes. The PETA director urged Modi to adopt pro-vegan measures taken by other countries such as New Zealand, China and Germany.
I ask you to prove that India can match or overcome them, the 52-year-old actor added.
Expressing concern about climate change, he wrote: My heart is with everyone affected by the severe air pollution that affects Delhi. I care about residents, as well as animals that can't wear facial masks or stay indoors.
She said that according to the latest reports, 36 million Indians could face the threat of annual coastal flooding by 2050. The World Bank has predicted that at least 21 cities in India will approach zero groundwater levels for next year and that the 40 percent of Indians may not have water to drink in 2030.
Anderson in his letter praised the cuisine of India that made it the easiest place on earth to be vegan. India is the easiest place to be vegan ... I still remember the beautiful color of saffron rice and the seductive aroma of vegan Biryani. Indian foods are so fantastic and varied that it is the easiest place in the world to be vegan, he added. .
Last month, he had written to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking him to serve nutritious vegan meals in correctional facilities.
