Cancer & Chicken & (Maybe) Fake Groups

So last week a group called "Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine" sued (press release) McDonald's and other companies, alleging that their chicken products contain PhIP, a "dangerous carcinogen."

But there are also assertions that the PCRM is essentially an animal-rights group with its goal conversion of people to vegetarianism, with perhaps only five percent of its members being physicians.  (Of course, the group making those assertions is itself funded by restaurants and food companies.)

Whee!
