It’s not surprising that the misnamed Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is against messages that tout the healthfulness of milk (“Dairy study touts calcium as the ‘next big thin’ in dieting,” Oct. 10). PCRM is an animal rights group, not a “doctors” organization. More than 95 percent of its members never went to medical school.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has already steered over $1.3 million to this deceptive front group. PCRM’s president is also president of The PETA Foundation. Both groups oppose eating meat and drinking milk because they believe a cow’s life is worth the same as a human being’s.

Americans need sensible, science-based diet information. That shouldn’t include animal-rights propaganda disguised as medical advice.
