      [featuring PCRM!]

      Carrie Clyne�s last job was in an office that feasted on a steady supply of
      junk food. Donuts in the mornings and cupcakes for staffers� birthdays were
      the familiar routine.

      But in January, when she took a position with nonprofit organization
      Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, she was pleasantly surprised
      by her new employer�s decidedly different attitude toward food.

      PCRM has an office policy mandating that only vegan food may be eaten in
      its office. The organization, which advocates for healthy eating,
      preventive medicine and ethical clinical research, is so committed to the
      rule that it notifies prospective employees of the policy when they receive
      an offer letter for a job.

      PCRM decided to go vegan for a simple reason.

      �We want to practice what we preach,� said Susan Levin, the group�s
      director of nutrition education.
