PETA Distorts Autism Science
We know that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and its activist allies like to invent reasons to avoid milk. But now the animal liberation radicals are pulling from the dangerous anti-vaccine playbook, claiming that moo-juice causes autism. An infectious disease specialist writing at the Daily Beast calls PETA out for its misleading myth-making. He argues:
But by sticking their nose into the issue, PETA has only served to marginalize serious researchers who might uncover useful information and place the topic into the hands of charlatans and faith healers, those who use family desperation as an opportunity to turn a buck.
At Science-Based Medicine, a medical doctor comes to a similar conclusion:
This is clearly, in my opinion, a campaign of fear mongering based upon a gross distortion of the scientific evidence. The purpose is to advocate for a vegan diet, which fits their ideological agenda. They are likely aware that it is easier to spread fears than to reassure with a careful analysis of the scientific evidence.
It’s not surprising that PETA would embellish and distort anti-dairy claims to promote its animal liberation agenda, just appalling. It is also appalling that PETA kills over 80 percent of the dogs and cats in its care and has killed over 31,000 pets since 1998. Is there any low to which PETA will not stoop? _______________________________________________________
Check out our new site that calls out PETA for killing so many pets even as it campaigns to ban all uses of animals by people. Even caring for pets is against PETA’s principles: PETA President Ingrid Newkirk has said, “It would be lovely if we stopped this whole notion of pets altogether.”
We will continue to expose PETA for its hypocrisy and extremism. Head over to Petakillsanimals.com to see the full, graphic truth—if you can stomach it.
