    As stated in a press release, the "Let Vegetarianism Grow on You" ad is unveiled as a follow up to the "publication of the results of the biggest medical study ever to conclude that avoiding meat gives people a better chance of living longer." Cloris herself has chimed in, "I felt a million times better, and I've never had a bite of meat ever since then" when recalling the first time she became a vegetarian.
