officials have known for decades that smoking cigarettes causes disease and
that animal tests are poor predictors of these effects. Yet, tobacco companies continue
to force animals to smoke, even though more effective alternatives exist. Humans
choose to smoke, animals don't.
Ask the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) to take action!
Please Ban Cigarette Tests on Animals!
I was horrified to learn that mice and rats are forced to breathe cigarette smoke for hours a day for years on end in cruel tests that are not required by law and for which alternative methods exist. I strongly urge the FDA to ban cigarette tests on animals and require that tobacco companies switch to more effective and humane alternatives. Thank you for your consideration of this important animal issue.
