Story
Tagline
We advocate for preventive medicine, especially good nutrition, conduct clinical research, and advocate for higher ethical standards in research.
Introduction
Since 1985, PCRM has been influencing advancements in medicine and science. Our membership includes 150,000 health care professionals and concerned citizens.


Prevention
PCRM promotes preventive medicine through innovative programs:

Food Groups Handout or Poster (PDF)

  • PCRM has led the way for reforms of federal nutrition policies.
  • Our clinical research programs are breaking new ground in diabetes, cancer, and other serious conditions.
  • PCRM’s Cancer Project has provided vital information to tens of thousands of people.
  • The New Four Food Groups is PCRM’s innovative proposal for a federal nutrition policy that puts a new priority on health.
  • Our public service announcement series features medical experts on prevention and health.

Research Advocacy
We encourage higher standards for ethics and effectiveness in research:

  • We oppose unethical human experiments. While great strides have been made in eliminating such experiments, problems remain. For example, children are still given synthetic growth hormone in experiments to make them taller, and both children and adults are exposed to unnecessary new drugs which have toxic effects.
  • We promote alternatives to animal research and animal testing. We have worked to put a stop to gruesome experiments, such as the military’s cat-shooting studies, DEA narcotics experiments, and monkey self-mutilation projects. We also promote nonanimal methods in medical education. Currently, more than three-quarters of all U.S. medical schools have dropped their animal labs for medical students.
