5 Ways PETA is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week
- Animal tests have profound consequences. PETA scientists and colleagues have revealed that experiments are pushing monkey species to the brink of extinction.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
