Chickens are "natural born killers".
This is the basic message of a recent ad
from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. This organization has filed a lawsuit against Tyson Foods
for making false health claims. I came across this organization and its campaign on an entertaining C-Span program
[Did anybody else watch this program?]. On the program, Neal Barnard, the leader of this organization, said that when you heat chicken(and other meats) certain carcinogenic amines are created. But, when you heat a veggie burger, it just warms up
. Therefore, he recommends a 100% vegetarian diet. It looks like the organization's next move is a TV ad
with this message. Your reactions?
