Educating Ourselves to Speak Against Animal Tests

Educating Ourselves to Speak Against Animal Tests in Remembrance of World Week for Animals in Laboratories. Refer to the alert and suggestions at: 

Please commit to learning one new argument, or reading one book against animal tests this week. I highly recommend Ray Greek, M.D.'s book, "Sacred Cows and Golden Geese, The Human Harm from Animal Experiments." It is easy to understand and gives you an arsenal of powerful arguments to present to those who still think animal tests are the salvation of the human race. You can order this book at: 

Another, perhaps more difficult to read, article by Ray Greek is found at: 

This article, titled "The Science Behind Why Animal Experimentation Cannot Help Humans," is a philosophical discussion of the flawed premises and assumptions that are at the heart of animal tests, that "animals are not furry humans with four feet." This article gives you the solid, fundamental arguments for refuting what are essentially illogical and absurd reasons for conducting animal tests.

Remember, if we don't learn these arguments and present them to others, WHO WILL? Industry, researchers, EPA, FDA or other government agencies? If we can "get it," with the power of the internet and rapid communications, we can help many others "get it" too! I suggest skimming the article first; then focusing on the sections you can best understand, and thirdly reading the whole article slowly, to understand his framework for arguing against the flawed "science" or "psuedo-science" of animal tests.

When we struggle to understand this topic we become better able to simplify the arguments and present them to others to help them understand too. Together we can help advance science in the interests of all living beings!
