Tell NIH To Stop Testing Nicotine On Animals


Petition to Deputy Director Norka Ruiz Brav and Director Elias Zerhouni to Stop Nicotine Experiments on Animals

Every year in the U.S., hundreds of animals are harmed and killed in experiments to test the effects of nicotine and tobacco. Since 2002 alone, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has spent at least $16.5 million to conduct nicotine experiments on pregnant and newborn animals. This appalling figure does not reflect the total cost of all nicotine research on animals, which numbers far higher (into the millions), but only that which focuses on nicotine’s effect on fetal and newborn development.

Please contact these individuals at NIH. Ask that the agency end the decades-long policy of funding nicotine experiments on animals and instead redirect funds towards prevention, education and smoking cessation programs. Please keep all correspondence polite.
