The comments on the article are enlightening -- "Nobody has a heart attack just because they ate one high-calorie sandwich", "[Virginia is the] fattest state in the fattest country in the world", and "The PCRM are actually a front group for PETA and you can't take anything they say seriously!" It would be funny if it weren't so sad.
Yeah it's kind of depressing reading those comments isnt it?! I did actually submit my own comment agreeing with PCRM and including their website but that was hours ago and it still hasnt been included so I suppose it wont be allowed in - shame! But I think it is true that PCRM is at least partially funded by PETA. I dont know what proportion of PCRM funding is met by PETA though - maybe someone here can enlighted me?
