Have you recently gone vegetarian? Maybe you still eat meat but are looking for a lifestyle change to benefit your health and save animals’ lives? Well, if you have been served grilled chicken or processed meats, you have a rare opportunity to fight for animals.

As some of you may know, the consumption of processed meats-such as sausage, bacon, and hot dogs-has been linked to colon cancer. Many folks are also surprised to learn that grilled chicken breast contains a cancer-causing chemical called PhlP. Unfortunately, food outlets that sell grilled chicken and processed meats are not warning consumers of the risk that their products pose.

The Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is trying to bring manufacturers and sellers of hot dogs, sausage, grilled chicken, and similar foods that are linked with cancer to court in order to force them to put up warnings to notify consumer of the health risk of their products. PCRM is currently doing a nationwide search to find plaintiffs for this lawsuit … and that’s where you come in! You could be a part of this unusual and exciting opportunity to help animals if you meet the following criteria:

  1. You’ve been eating these products and did not know that they were linked to cancer risk.
  2. You will now stop eating these products.

If you do meet the above criteria and would like to assist PCRM with this lawsuit, please contact PCRM today at [email protected] or 202-686-2210, extension 314. Best of luck to you and your colon!

    I also wonder if legal action could be taken against hospitals? Emory University Hospital in Atlanta boasts of being named one of “America’s best Hospitals” but they feed meat 3 times a day to patients, including those suffering from heart disease and cancer. Is it possible that they, being one of the best in the medical field, are ignorant to the link between meat and heart disease and cancer? Or are they knowingly serving patients foods that will harm them?
