BRED TO SUFFER - Animals as models of human disease
"The moral is that animal model systems not only kill animals, they also kill humans", Dr Irwin Bross, former director of the world's largest cancer research institute.
Bred to Suffer shows that, far from being a 'necessary evil', animal experiments are actually an obstacle to medical progress because the resulting data cannot be reliably applied to people.
"Everyone who reads this meticulously-prepared report will be angered by the futility of so much animal research. The notion that mice are miniature people is a grossly simplistic one. Bred To Suffer highlights the fact that superior research methods are available right now and need to be appropriately funded and enthusiastically embraced by the scientific community."
