About this book

This volume challenges the widely held belief that the use of living animals in biomedical research is absolutely necessary for the advancement of human medical knowledge. The authors seek to show that the use of animals in medical research is unethical, not only in relation to the suffering of the animals, but because faulty science underpins such experimentation, leading to needless human as well as animal suffering.

Drs. Greek, both former animal experimenters, show that experiments on animals are about money, not curing disease. --Martina Navratilova
