PETA Files Suit in NJ

Yesterday I sent out a NJOA E Acion Alert showing various vegan/vegetarian groups in NJ with an agenda to remove our freedoms to fish, hunt and trap and impose their lifestyle on everyone. Below is a story about a vegan advocacy group connected to PETA filing a class-action lawsuit in New Jersey against hot dog makers.

Groups such as HSUS, PETA, ALF, NJARA, are deceitful in that they use the moniker of animal protection as a ruse to advance a pro-vegetarian agenda. In the process they target anglers, hunters and trappers but their mission is much more insidious and encompassing, in the example below they are trying to destroy an industry that sells meat products.

All conservationists should be alerted to their agenda since they ultimately undermine the precepts of conservation - regardless of their intentions. They are well-financed and work at all levels to take away our freedoms.

Vegans Want Warning Labels on Hot Dogs, But Meat Industry Says Hot Dogs Are Safe
Thursday, July 23, 2009
By Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer

(CNSNews.com) - On the same day that the American Meat Institute held its annual hot dog lunch on Capitol Hill, a vegan advocacy group filed a class-action lawsuit in New Jersey Superior Court to force hot dog makers to put labels on their product warning of an increased risk of cancer for people who eat hot dogs.

In the Rayburn building courtyard on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, people lined up to get free hot dogs while the American Meat Institute (AMI) spokeswoman made her case for the American icon associated with baseball, backyard barbecues and good times in general.

"We hope the court will dismiss this nuisance lawsuit, and if a warning label should be anywhere, it should be on PCRM's (Physicians Committee on Responsible Medicine) press releases, because Americans need to know who they really are," Janet Riley, senior vice president of public affairs for the AMI, told CNSNews.com.

"They're an animal rights group that's connected to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)," Riley said.

"And using a name like the Physicians Committee or Cancer Project (which is associated with PCRM) doesn't really represent what they are about," Riley said. "What they are about is a vegan society. They believe vegetarianism is a cure for everything."


Dan Kilburn, lead attorney in the New Jersey lawsuit and general counsel for the Cancer Project, told CNSNews.com that his group does have a pro-vegan agenda.

"Yes, we do promote a vegan diet to avoid cancer and to promote cancer survival," Kilburn said, adding that he was not a vegan before taking his current job five years ago.

However, Kilburn suggested the major hot dog manufacturers named in the suit - Nathan's Famous, Oscar Mayer-owner Kraft Foods, Sara Lee, Marathon Enterprises, and ConAgra Foods, which owns Hebrew National - are operating with the same deception as Big Tobacco did a few decades ago.

"This debate is identical to the debate 30 years ago between big tobacco and smoking," Kilburn said. "They said over and over again that there was no connection between cancer and smoking."

Neal Barnard, president of the Cancer Project, said in a press release that, "Just as tobacco causes lung cancer, processed meats are linked to colon cancer," and "companies that sell hot dogs are well aware of the danger, and their customers deserve the same information."

Kilburn said the report cited in the lawsuit was done by the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research, two non-profits that focus on researching the connection between cancer and diet.

Kilburn said the report, "Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Prevention of Cancer; A Global Perspective" recommends a diet free from processed meat, but the report says red meat consumption should be limited and that "very little, if any" processed meat should be eaten.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Dietary Guidelines for Americans (2005) includes meat and poultry in its basic food groups and does not distinguish between processed and other meats.

Further, some studies, including one by the Harvard School of Public Health in 2004, have shown there are no links between colon cancer and meat consumption.

"There's nothing wrong with selling dangerous products, as long as you label them properly," Kilburn said.

When asked by CNSNews.com why the hot dog is getting such scrutiny when there are so many processed foods on the market, Riley said, "I can only speculate that it's because the hot dog is more than a food. It's sort of a cultural icon. It's so widely consumed, and it just makes for more interested press, unfortunately.

"Americans have loved hot dogs for more than a century, so we hope consumers will look for guidance from the dietary guidelines and eat a balanced diet, and hot dogs can be part of that," Riley said.

I'll think about PETA as I'm eating my venison hot dogs. I know you PETA idiots are monitoring this site - it's no wonder no one can take you seriously. [eyeroll]

Those were the emotions that I just went through while reading that article. Why do they feel the need to push their lifestyle on everyone? And really, meat causes cancer? Come on now I've been eating meat for as long as my teeth were strong enough to chew it and I don't have cancer. Maybe I'm just a miracle.

Further, some studies, including one by the Harvard School of Public Health in 2004, have shown there are no links between colon cancer and meat consumption.
I'll believe Harvard before any one of those people any day and twice on Sundays!!

Better not laugh, if they keep playing the odds they keep their chances.

We need to keep our side straight, fight for our freedoms are right to live.

It has become an attitude totally opposite of what America stands for, they want less freedoms thinking they are getting more. That is until their BMW needs a new ac unit because of a deer. [rofl]

If a group wants to file a lawsuit to take away your freedoms, even the freedom of eating a hot dog without a bogus health warning being jammed down your throat with it, NJ is the place to go. [down]
