A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"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.


Animal Research – 26 September 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

If you haven’t read “Portrait of An Animal Researcher” by David Irving, visit  now. This “must read” article is truthful, intelligently written, and one of the best assessments of the state of biomedical research utilizing animals today.

For example, I know that this is so true:

“…the unbelievably sickening, bizarre, sadistic research which medical animal researchers in their clean white coats engage and which is routinely rubber stamped by the NIH and other government funding agencies, thus robbing the public blind.”

I also agree with the following statements by David Irving:

“Linus Pauling zeroed in on the corruption when he wrote ‘Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud, and that the major cancer research organizations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them.’

“That the practice of torturing innocent animals in an effort to attend to the addictions human beings have created themselves might be considered unethical and unjust, not to mention Mengelian, seems not to have penetrated the consciousness of erudite, highly educated, researchers like Carroll.”

“It could hardly be more patently unethical to slaughter animals in cruel ways and eat them, acquire a disease in the process of digesting and metabolizing them, and then slaughter and torture more animals to try to find a cure for the disease caused by eating them.”

“When it comes to medical research, what else is there – eternal dependency on a weaker animal species that cannot defend itself against humankind’s cruelty and abuse? Surely we are capable of much, much more. Isn’t it time we left our primitive views behind and began reaching for a higher destiny?”

As you “make the connection” you can’t help but come to the conclusion that going vegan is the best solution for the well-being of humans, animals, and the earth.
