It shouldn’t surprise anyone that a recent report on airline food reserved its “healthy” label for strictly vegetarian food (“Doctors rate airline food,” Dec. 13).

The report’s source, an organization called the “Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine,” is actually not a medical charity at all, but an animal rights group.

As more Americans are learning, PCRM is affiliated with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The group’s president sits on the board of the PETA Foundation. And PETA has given nearly $1 million to date. The result? Deceptive animal activists wearing the sheep’s clothing of the medical profession. That’s why the American Medical Association has formally censured the group.

The mission of this misnamed “physicians’ committee” is the same as PETA’s: to remove beef, chicken, pork, and all dairy foods from our diets, whether we like it or not.

Hence the group’s bias toward calling non-vegetarian food “unhealthy.”

Most people know better than to take dietary advice from animal rights radicals.
