A study being published in the upcoming issue of Reviews in the Neurosciencesseeks to prove that animal testing is actually hurting spinal cord injury research as opposed to helping it. The report, written by scientists from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, points to evidence that results in lab rats don’t necessarily translate to results in humans.
A quick glance at their website, however, and it is easy to see their true motive. While the write-up I read presents the case from the perspective of what is best for SCI research, the PCRM are vegans and the true intent is abolish animal testing.
I would be interested in hearing what specific alternatives they suggest, if any. Read the originalhere.
