INFORMATION

Decades after the “war on cancer” was launched, we still have no cure for breast cancer. And the billions of dollars spent on cruel and ineffective animal research have not identified the causes of breast cancer or a treatment.

The use of animals for breast cancer research is suboptimal due to animals’ significant genetic, cellular, and physiological differences from humans. Animals suffer and die as a result of experiments and the misleading results can pose real risks to human health.

Fortunately, some researchers and charities are leading the way toward more ethical and effective, human-centered research.

Humane, nonanimal research being conducted by compassionate organizations such as the Avon Foundation, the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, and their vital joint project, the Army of Women, focus on how breast cancer starts in women's bodies and on identifying ways to combat the genetic and environmental factors that increase the risk of developing breast cancer.

But some health charities continue to fund cruel animal experiments. Please tell them you want scientifically-sound and humane research that will stop breast cancer before it starts.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
