John Salley ‘Block Diabetes’ ad appears in Hoop Magazine, promotes vegan meals

Plant-based diet powered and former NBA shot blocker extraordinaire John Salley is appearing in a new ad for PCRM’s “Block Diabetes” initiative.

Salley, a longtime vegan, is featured in a print ad currently running in the latest issue of the NBA’s publication Hoop Magazine that informs readers of the positive diabetes-blocking effects eating fruits and veggies provide.

The message is underscored with a suggestion that hopefully viewers of the ad will practice daily, eat more vegetarian and vegan meals.

Additionally the four-time NBA champion, who has appeared in PETA testimonials and hosted Farm Sanctuary’s Walk for Farm Animals in 2010, filmed a PSA for the same campaign last year.
