Chain Of Events Links Jody Gorran’s Lawsuit Against Atkins With Radical Anti-Meat Groups

Filed under: Atkins Diet — @ May 9, 2006

You’ve heard of Jody Gorran, right? He’s the idiot…er, I mean…gentleman who decided to file a lawsuit against Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. for allegedly causing his arteries to clog when he went on the Atkins diet. Preposterous, I know, but that’s what he is claiming.

Well, now a public watchdog group called The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) has outlined a very clear chain of events linking Gorran and his lawsuit against Atkins (and now McDonald’s) to his association with such radical anti-meat groups as PETA and their front-group, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).

Here’s what the NLPC found in their investigation:

- Gorran sued the Atkins diet company only two years ago for allegedly ruining his health.
- Gorran’s suit was aided by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
- In fact, PCRM’s lead attorney represented Jody Gorran in his lawsuit against Atkins.
- PCRM is a well-known PETA front group and has received hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations from PETA.
- PCRM founder Neil Barnard is affiliated with an extreme animal rights group named a “Domestic Terror Threat” by the Department of Justice.

For Gorran, PETA, and PCRM, it isn’t about health, it’s about headlines. When you realize that, then you will gain a better perspective when you see an Atkins diet attack piece like this one. It all makes sense now, doesn’t it?
