Pippa Black, a wildly popular Australian actress, has joined Maggie Q in adorning her beautiful body with veggies and promoting the vegetarian lifestyle in a new ad for PETA. The campaign — with the tagline “Let Vegetarianism Grow on You” — will run down under as part of PETA’s effort to curb animal factory farming and promote a healthier lifestyle. Australia has the second-highest obesity rate in the world (Guess who’s number one for fat fat fatties?) with nearly 60 per cent of adults and more than one-fourth of children considered to be overweight or obese. Said Pippa of her decision to participate,

“Of course, going vegetarian is a positive step to help stop animal suffering; it’s also great for your health and the environment”, says Black, who put her studies in animal technology on hold to pursue an acting career. “I just feel better since I stopped eating meat, and when you feel better, I think you look better too.”
