Today 12th June 2017 is World Meat Free Day. Vegetarians and celebrities all over the globe have been urging people to turn vegetarian for one day.

Actress Amy Jackson has starred in a new ad campaign ahead of World Meat Free Day — which falls on June 12 — for animal rights organisation PETA. Dressed in a plastic wrap, she is urging people to go vegetarian.

The ad states: “Hooked on Meat? Go vegetarian.”

“Meat products can cause cancer, heart disease, obesity. So for cutting all of that out… it’s just a no-brainer that we’re going to be a lot healthier,” Amy said in a statement.

Commenting on the virtues of having become a vegetarian, Amy added: “My skin’s got a lot clearer. I’ve noticed a change in my body. I’ve noticed a change in my metabolism. So I feel a lot healthier, a lot lighter, with a lot more energy also.”

Apart from Amy, celebrities like Hema Malini, Shahid Kapoor, Anil Kumble, R Madhavan and Amrita Rao have associated on several counts with People for Ethical Treatment of Animals to encourage healthy meat-free meals.

Amy’s next Bollywood appearance will be in “Boogie Man” and “Robot 2.O”.
