WASHINGTON, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands of Iraqi children in need
of aid will benefit from a donation made by the Physicians Committee for
Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a nonprofit health advocacy organization. The
group made this donation in honor of Dr. Benjamin Spock, the world famous
pediatrician, long-time humanitarian, and PCRM member. The doctors' group
donated medical supplies and enough soymilk to feed up to 30,000 children.
Benjamin Spock was a lifelong activist, pacifist, and disarmament
proponent, in addition to being an advocate for a non-dairy vegetarian
diet for children -- a position PCRM also promotes through its many
campaigns. Dr. Spock discusses the problems a meat and dairy-based diet
can cause in the 7th and final edition of his best-selling book.
