Tell Breast Cancer Charities to Use Non-Animal Research!


Decades after the "War on Cancer" was launched, we still have no cure for breast cancer. And the billions of dollars spent on cruel and ineffective experiments on monkeys, rats, mice, rabbits, cats, dogs, and other animals, who are injected with chemicals or cancer cells and forced to endure the growth of painful tumors until they die or are killed, have not identified the causes of breast cancer or a treatment.

The use of animals for breast cancer research is unreliable because of animals' significant genetic, cellular, and physiological differences from humans. Breast cancer survivor and National Breast Cancer Coalition founder Fran Visco has stated that, "Animals don't reflect the reality of cancer in humans," and former National Cancer Institute Director Dr. Richard Klausner has stated, "The history of cancer research has been the history of curing cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for decades, and it simply didn't work in humans." Yet animals continue to suffer and die as a result of these ineffective experiments, and the misleading results prolong the suffering of women who need a cure now.

Humane, non-animal research is being conducted by compassionate organizations like the Avon Foundation and the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation that focus on how breast cancer starts in women's bodies and on identifying ways to combat the genetic and environmental factors that increase the risk of developing breast cancer.

Please take a minute to send just a single e-mail that will go to the executives of the organizations that fund animal experiments. Ask them to stop funding these cruel studies and to support scientifically sound and humane research.
