PETA: Eating buffalo wings could affect your unborn’s penis size
PETA is no longer just concerned for the ethical treatment and wellbeing of animals, they're now also worried about your unborn son's man parts. With the intention of saving two birds with one stone, the animal rights advocacy group recently wrote an open letter to organizers of the National Buffalo Wing Festival urging them to "keep pregnant women out for the sake of their sons' sex organs."
The letter, posted on their website, alleges:
The latest scientific evidence shows that the sons of pregnant women who consume chicken are more likely to have smaller penises because of a chemical found in the birds' flesh. And it's not just boys who are at risk from chicken. Babies, including girls, of mothers who have high cholesterol counts—and chicken is loaded with cholesterol—can be born with blocked arteries.
"Pregnant women may want to think twice before chomping on those chicken wings, or their sons could come up short," says PETA Associate Director of Campaigns Lindsay Rajt. "Chickens may be little animals, but they suffer in a big way before their wings are hacked off for a stupid contest."
