World Week for Animals

By From page A5 | April 24, 2013

EDITOR:

World Week for Animals in Laboratories (April 20-28) spotlights the millions of animals who suffer and die each year in research and testing. This is an important time to address the myth that animal experiments are a “necessary evil,” essential for medical progress. A new era in biomedical science has emerged without the use of animals, using human cell cultures, genomics and digital imaging, to name a few of the many available methods.

Increasingly, scientists are acknowledging that animal research is not producing the results attributed to it, or deserving of billions of taxpayer dollars. Nor does it justify the incredible suffering involved.
