WARNING some viewers may find the following images upsetting. This video was taken from the film Earthlings it can be viewed here http://video.google.co.uk/videosearch... Please before you turn away spare a thought for these animals that have been bred just to be experimented upon. They feel pain and emotions just as our pet animals would. Why do we constantly believe the lies that the establishment tells us. An estimated 115 million animals are used in experiments every year around the world. Across Europe over 12 million animals are used each year. Many different species are used for animal experiments around the world including rats, mice, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, cats, dogs, mini-pigs, primates (including chimps in some countries), goats, sheep, birds, fish etc. 8. Figures from the USAs Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reveal that 92% of new drugs that pass preclinical tests, including tests on animals, fail to reach the market either because of safety or efficacy failures. (US FDA: Report on Challenge and Opportunity on the Critical Path to New Medical Products, March 2004). There are many examples of where animal experiments have hindered medical progress. For example, a report published in New Scientist (26 February 2004) revealed how research into Multiple Sclerosis (MS) using misleading animal models has potentially delayed medical progress by many years. There is a huge range of sophisticated non-animal research techniques available such as computer simulations, cell, tissue or organ cultures, complex artificial systems, QSARs or brain imagers. Many of these utilise human biological material or data so that the results are directly applicable to the human situation. These techniques are not only more ethical but also provide more relevant and reliable results. Experiments are wide-ranging but can involve poisoning; disease infection; wound infliction; application of skin/eye irritants; food/water/sleep deprivation; subjection to psychological stress; brain damage; paralysis; surgical mutilation; deliberate organ failure; genetic mutation and associated physical deformity; burning; electric shock, forced inhalation and death.
World-wide, animals are used to test, re-test or develop products such as cosmetics, household cleaners, food additives & colourings, food products, pharmaceuticals, medical research and devises, industrial and agro- chemicals, tobacco, alcohol and military devices / techniques.
