Media Needs to Check Background of Pseudo-Medical Animal Rights Group
The following is a statement by AMI Foundation President Randy Huffman, Ph.D.:
"A factually inaccurate, alarmist and exploitive new campaign aimed at scaring parents and school systems out of feeding children processed meats is just what those of us who know the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) have come to expect from this pro-vegetarian animal rights group in doctors' clothing.
After all, it is this group's actions that prompted the American Medical Association in 1991 to issue a news release stating that, 'The AMA finds the recommendations of PCRM irresponsible and potentially dangerous to the health and welfare of Americans.

In reality they have very few doctors that belong to the group, and mostly use the name to give the impression that they have medical expertise. This group continually touts an anti-animal agriculture message under the disguise of legitimate medical advice.
