The newest rapper in da veggie club?

According to Vegetarian Star, Grammy winner and rap superstar 50 Cent is working to encourage healthy eating among children, and he just threw a picnic party in Queens for kids who chowed down on veggie burgers and whole-wheat pasta.

Given how many young people are already battling weight issues and poor health, serving veggie burgers rather than cholesterol-filled cow patties is a great way to get kids on the path to healthier lifestyles.

Eliminating cholesterol-laden animal products by going vegan is one of the easiest ways for people of all ages to reduce their risk of a number of health complications, from heart disease to diabetes. Is it possible that 50 Cent has joined the hip-hop ranks of Wu Tang Clan’s Masta Killa and gone vegetarian? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
