5 Ways PETA is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week

  1. Animal tests have profound consequences. PETA scientists and colleagues have revealed that experiments are pushing monkey species to the brink of extinction
  1. There’s already been at least one tuberculosis (TB) outbreak at a laboratory this year. We’re now urging the World Health Organization to act on the risk of TB at monkey-breeding facilities. 
  1. Meat glue, which animal experimenters inject into mice to alter their proteins, is a disturbing product. We’re demanding that Ajinomoto Co., the largest producer of the product, end tests on animals unless required by law. 
  1. A legislator in South Carolina has taken a stand against funneling U.S. tax dollars to cruel and wasteful overseas animal experiments by becoming the latest to cosponsor the bipartisan Cease Animal Research Grants Overseas Act. 
  1. Did you know that Johns Hopkins University performs highly invasive experiments on owls for what are supposedly attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) studies? If you have been diagnosed with ADHD, you can join PETA’s efforts to end this cruel practice by signing our petition.
