Notes: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is an American animal rights organization based in Norfolk, Virginia, and led by Ingrid Newkirk, its international president. While PETA does publish some actual credible and important information they also heavily promote pseudoscience. One example is their promotion of milk as a cause for autism. To learn more about other pseudosciences they peddle check out Rationalwiki. (D. Van Zandt 2/8/2017)
