Letter to the editor: Don’t let vegan activists decide what you eat

It’s common sense that eating a cheeseburger the size of your head throws all intentions of healthy moderation out the window. [“Warning sought for big burger,” April 1] But if Michigan’s minor league baseball fans need a reminder, there are far better people for that job than an anti-meat guru like Susan Levin.

It’s common sense that eating a cheeseburger the size of your head throws all intentions of healthy moderation out the window. [“Warning sought for big burger,” April 1] But if Michigan’s minor league baseball fans need a reminder, there are far better people for that job than an anti-meat guru like Susan Levin.

Levin’s organization, the deceptively-named Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, is a vegan activist group with less than 4 percent actual physician membership. More than two-thirds of its funding comes from vegetarian restaurant owner Nanci Alexander, the wealthiest save-the-cows activist in the country. No wonder PCRM wants to remind Whitecaps fans about the difference between a 4-pound burger and a salad.
