Ask the FDA to Stop Animal Testing – 17 April 2008

Here’s a letter that we wrote to the FDA:

16 April 2008

Andrew C. von Eschenbach, M.D.,
U.S. Food and Drug Administration
5600 Fishers Lane
Rockville, MD 20857

Dear Dr. von Eschenbach:

We urge the Food and Drug Administration to please mandate the use of validated alternatives to animal tests. Doing this would result in safer drugs for American consumers since animal testing is not as reliable as the alternatives. A drug that appears safe in animal tests may be dangerous to humans, or the opposite may be true: drugs that are deemed dangerous to animals may be safe for humans.

We look forward to your reply. You can contact us at the address in this letter.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Frank L. Hoffman

Mary T. Hoffman

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
