Phony 'Physicians Committee' Suing Restaurants is Animal-Rights Trojan Horse, says CCF

Grilled Chicken Lawsuits are the Latest Salvo in Vegan Diet War

WASHINGTON, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom criticized the misleading Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) for taking its save-the-chickens crusade to the California courts.

Kinburn has also appeared protesting alongside PETA activists against the use of animals by medical research laboratories. A photograph of Kinburn participating in a PETA protest can be viewed at http://www.consumerfreedom.com/kinburn.jpg.

CCF Director of Research David Martosko said: "When will people realize that this phony 'physicians' group is just PETA with a lab coat? The animal rights activists at PCRM would rather save lab rats than cure cancer and AIDS. They don't deserve a say in whether or not anyone eats a chicken sandwich."

In 2006, noted radio host Dr. Dean Edell criticized PCRM's deception, noting that less than 4 percent of its members are actual physicians. "I have seen every major news organization in this country get fooled," Edell said during his October 20, 2006 broadcast. "And they print this organization's pre
