Meghalaya is in finalist in peta india’s ‘cutest vegetarian next door’ contest

Shillong, Sept 25:  As People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India’s 2018 Cutest Vegetarian Next Door contest heats up, Melongnen Tzudir of Shillong is in the running to take home the title. She’s beaten out hundreds of other contestants from across India to land a place among the 20 finalists.

PETA India will ultimately crown two winners, one man and one woman and members of the public can help the group choose by voting for their favourite finalists on its website.

“On average, vegetarians are slimmer and healthier than meat-eaters are and over their lifetime, they spare many animals the horrors of factory farms, slaughterhouses, and fishing nets,” says PETA India CEO Dr Manilal Valliyate. “One look at our radiant finalists confirms that there’s nothing more attractive than compassion.”

” we have been vegetarian for five years because I care about animals and don’t want to eat them,” says Tzudir. “I share information on animal welfare with my friends and help them understand why we need to love animals.”

In addition to causing animals to suffer on a massive scale, eating meat has been conclusively linked to an increased risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and obesity.

Also, a United Nations report concluded that factory farming is one of the biggest contributors to the most serious environmental problems at every level – from local to global.Voting will be open to the public until 29 September, and the winners will be announced on 3 October.
