Center for Consumer Freedom
The Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) is a conservative and libertarian non-profit alliance of industry and consumers which focuses on gaining and maintaining consumer choice in the areas of food and drink. They actively oppose what they call "the growing cabal of 'food cops,'" which is the term CCF uses to describe individuals and special interest groups who try to regulate or control consumer choice, especially on the bases of health claims.
Some of CCF's main areas of interest are:
- Opposing animal rights groups such as PETA, which CCF claims exist to enforce vegetarianism on everyone.
- Opposing intrusive government measures such as menu labeling laws.
- Exposing mistakes, deceit, and outright lies about health science.
The Center for Consumer Freedom runs a number of other sites as well:
- ActivistCash.com, which provides in-depth profiles of animal rights and health activists groups
- Animal Scam.com, a criticism of animal rights groups
- CSPIScam.com, a criticism of Center for Science in the Public Interest
- mercuryfacts.org, which promotes the consumption of fish by arguing that the health benefits vastly outweigh the negligible effects of mercury found within fish
- ObesityMyths.com, which gives evidence against an "obesity epidemic"
- Peta Kills Animals, an exposé on PETA's animal welfare practices
- Physician Scam, a critique of Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) which claims that the PCRM is actually an animal rights group funded by PETA
- Trans-fat Facts.com, which argues against the health hysteria involving trans fatty acids
