WARNING – Eating meat is associated with increased risk of heart disease, cancer, and death

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine advocates a vegan diet along with a ban on animal testing and has received $1.3 million dollars from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals according to a 2004 Guardian article which states that 95% of PCRM members do not have a medical degree.

MLive reports
that the burger will appear on ESPN’s First Take on April 7.

The T shirt awarded to finishers can be purchased on the West Michigan Whitecaps website.

    You could put a similar warning on most things in life, like stepping into a street without looking both ways.
