At least he didn't mention chicken drum sticks, antelope, venison, tuna, turkey, sausage, or hot dogs (yeah, I know they're made from the 'leavings scraped up from the floor').

Dr. Barnard is a noted nutrition researcher whose research on diabetes and weight loss has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and published in leading peer-reviewed journals, including "Diabetes Care," the flagship journal of the American Diabetes Association. The Center for Consumer Freedom, on the other hand, has been exposed by the Washington Post and the New York Times as a deceptive front group that has taken millions in funding from the fast-food industry, the tobacco industry, and meat companies.

CCF's targets have included Mothers Against Drunk Driving, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for speaking out against drunk driving, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for tackling food safety, and a host of others.

Neal Barnard, president of the deceptively named “Physicians Committee” for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), is hitting the road this month on a book tour to promote his 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart program. The casual observer might think this is yet another hardcover to fill up the self-help section. But if you know a thing or two about PCRM (or weight loss, for that matter), you’ll quickly realize that—much like Barnard’s group—this book is not what it seems.More...
