Veggie Pam launches war on meat eaters

Pamela Anderson was today speaking out about the "cruelty" of eating meat.

The former Baywatch star has launched a poster campaign for animal rights group Peta in which she wears just a bikini, with her body parts marked to mimic a butcher's diagram.

Her flesh is labelled as "breast", "rump" and "leg", and the caption reads: "All animals have the same parts. Have a heart -- go vegetarian."

Anderson said her talk at Oxford University would begin with a vegetarian campaign video.

She said: "We're going to talk about vegetarianism, starting with the Glass Walls documentary that Paul McCartney narrated.

"Then we're going to talk about all the environmental issues, the moral issues, how it's better for your health."

The subject of vegetarianism is very important to Anderson.

The actress said: "The biggest issue that I like to talk about is the cruelty that goes into killing animals for slaughter.

"I want to talk about the flesh part of it all, so we thought this would be a great parody -- the butcher ad and being in a bikini -- drawing attention to it and realising that we all have the same parts."
