"Exposing the truth to wipe
out animal experimentation"
From WUFT-FM radio Gainesville, FL 4/24/02
UF Scientist Says Research Isn't Redundant
A University of Florida doctor
says his research is necessary even though an animal rights activist
calls it redundant. An organization called Stop Animal Exploitation
Now accuses UF of wasting over $60 million dollars in National
Institutes of Health grants. SAEN Director Michael Budkie says the
money goes toward un-necessary animal testing. He contends, in all,
NIH-funded animal research wastes $1 million an hour.
UF Researcher Marc Branch is
one target of Budkie's complaint. Branch is currently testing the
psychological effects of drug abuse. He says Budkie's accusations are
wrong. He says animal testing is necessary for his research. Branch
says most research also has to be repeated to get accurate results.
Branch adds researchers
obviously can't test new drugs and procedures on humans. He says
animal testing is the best alternative.
