Avoid products that use animal testing


Recently, Americans were shocked and sickened to see horrific video footage of chemical experiments inflicted on dogs by al-Qaida terrorists; yet identical experiments are routinely done in this country daily, by manufacturers of most personal care products.

Unless you see a 'No Animal Testing' label on your detergent, it was poured into a dog's eyes before being placed on the store shelf; your deodorant was poured into open wounds on dogs, guinea pigs and other living, breathing non-human animals who feel pain and fear identical to human animals. Some manufacturers will state these tests are required by the Food and Drug Administration; they are not. This testing occurs solely to limit product liability and lawsuits.

Please request cruelty-free items be stocked at your local supermarkets if they aren't there now. They are easily available at health-food stores. We can get the internet on a cell-phone now; technology exists to replace archaic animal testing. If you continue using products without such a sticker, know that a lonely dog in a lab has been choked with aerosols, tortured and maimed repeatedly to bring the product to you.
