America’s vivisectors to the world: “Go to hell you poor hungry little bastards.”
In 2004, 2.6 billion people did not have access to basic sanitation. Poverty and the resulting nutritional deficits result in underweight children. Over a quarter of the world’s children are underweight. In 2000, this led to 3.4 million child deaths.
Meanwhile, vivisectors in the U.S. apply for funding to study the life-extending effects of caloric restriction, funding to create new animal models of obesity, addiction, heart disease, and stroke even though 80% of premature heart attacks and strokes are preventable with a healthy diet, regular activity, and abstaining from tobacco products.
Imagine watching millions of people starve but deciding to spend your life torturing monkeys to learn a little more about the neural circuits involved in fear. That’s sick.
Sicker still are the fear-mongering lies used to justify their glass bead games. They claim that improved health in the U.S. is the direct result of their cruelties and that if they stopped sacrificing animals, healthcare would collapse. But healthful food and sanitation are the real reasons that people are healthy as the statistics above demonstrate clearly.
If vivisectors really cared about people, they’d close their labs and demand that the money they would have used go instead to feed hungry children.
