What in the world is...The Physicians Committe For Responsible Medicine

I just finished reading this book from the wonderful Dr. Neal Barnard. I love books like this that speak about wellness in an intelligent, sensible way. I don't like books that pretend wellness and health is super easy. It's not. It's a choice that you have to make everyday! This book is interesting and smart :)

Look for upcoming posts with more veganmama book recommendations (my kitchen has become a library!). Until then, lets talk about the organization Dr. Barnard is President, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).

Since 1985, PCRM has been influencing advancements in medicine and science. They advocate for preventive medicine, especially good nutrition, conduct clinical research, and advocate for higher ethical standards in research. This video tells you a little more of their story and their objective.

The New Four Food Groups is PCRM’s innovative proposal for a federal nutrition policy that puts a new priority on health. :) The world is changing, friends!

I consider PCRM to be a fanatical animal rights group with a clear cut agenda of promoting a vegan lifestyle and eliminating all animal experimentation - Joe Schwarcz PhD, Director, McGill University's Office for Science and Society
