A LIE THAT IS KILLING US Animal experimentation, also known as vlvisectlon, is directly responsible for the ram- pant growth of cancer, heart dissase, diabetes, birth defeds, arthrrtis, muscular dystrophy, leukemia, all kinds of mental diseases, and an sndless list of many otherold afflictions as well as scores of new ones, such as Alzheimer's disease and AIDS. These diseases are causing the most massive, systematic, and widespread destruction of human health ever known. The reason is fundamental: Today's research Is based almost entirely on animal experimen- tation, whlch Is a medical and scientific fraud. It is impossible to re-create a naturally occurrlng dlssase In a healthy animal simply because once rt is "re- created," it is no longer theoriginal,naturaldisease.The predictableresultoflookingatartlficlallydiseasedanimals is that the data obtained is not applfcable to man and thus is tragically misleading. This is the reason why no diseass has been cured in the 20th century except for the control of infectious diseases, which was accomplished thanks to nutrrtion, hygiene, and public sanitation. Consequently, all the old diseases along wrth the new ones are killing and dam- aging more and more people every day, including you and your family and friends. A LIE THAT IS COSTING US TRILLIONS OF DOLILARS (YES, TRILLIONS!) There is no money to be madefrom healthy people. This is why the medical and rssearch establishments are not in the least interested in preventlon (practically all diseases are pre- ventable). The criminal refusal to remove ths known causesof so many human allments guarsntses a sltuation where practlcally everyone is sick or will eventually gat sick (the flat refusal to educate people about the vital need to adopt a vegetarian diet is a prime ex- ample). Once millions upon millions of people are sick and dying and pronounced "in need" of drugs, tests, radiation, surgeries, transplants, and all kinds of medical attention and intervention, the expenditures connected with "heahh care" skyrocket accordingly. In 1991 alone, the United States spent 750 billion dollars on what should more appropriately be called "sickness care." It is conservatively estimated that by the year 2000, annual "health care" costs in the Unrted States will have increased to at least 1.5 trllllon dollars ($1 ,500,000,000,000) (1) Needless to say, sueh astronomicai expendrtures (which have made countless doctors, surgeons, pharmaceutical companies, and all kinds of instrtutions rich) have alrsady broken the financial back of the country. It is clear that prevention, and not "health care reform," is the real cure. A LIE THAT TORTURES BILLIONS OF ANIMALS It is estimated that, just in the United States, 100 million animals of all kinds are tortured to death every year by vivisectionist mills, which operate hidden from public view in colleges and universities, hospitals, chemical and pharmaceutical companies, cosmetic and tobacco companies, countless other corporations such as Gsneral Motors (in carcrash experiments), and by NASA and the milrtary. The numberof animals used by the milrtary is unknown and thus is not included in the 100 million figure. In addition, millions of animals are consumed by the vivisectionist machinery in other countries all over the world (countries that follow the "scientific standard" set by the United States). The 1991 budget of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Washington,D.C., the largest source of funding for vivisectors, was8.6billlon tax dollars ($8,600,000,000).(2) Because of AIDS (the new gold mins for the biomedical establishment), we are now pouring more billions into the pockets of the very "researchsrs" and "scientists" who never cured cancer, heart disease, diabetes, or anything else desprte having consumed hundreds of billions of our tax dollars and billions of animals just in the last few decades. A LIE THAT IS DESTROYING THE PLANET Not only are our health and economy being systematically destroyed by the vivisectionist mind-set, but so is our environment. The massive production and widespread use of pesticides and countless other chemicals found "safe" based on anlmal tests are responsible for the relentless and massive pollution of our land, rivers, and oceans, the consequent poisoning of ourfood and water supplies, the dsstruction ofthe earth's protective ozonelayer,and many other threats that are jeopardizing the very survival of life on the pianet. A LIE THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BIRTH AND GROWTH OF NUCLEAR ARMS Horrifying chemical, biobgical, and nuclear weapons, possessed by an ever-increasing number of countries, were developed by vivisectors and "tested" on animals the same way a drug, detergsnt, or toothpaste is "tested" on animals. Conventional wsapons of all sorts were also created in vivisectionist laboratories, where animals are routinely used as surrogates for man in warlike situations. A LIE THAT SABOTAGES REAL SOLUTIONS TO DRUG ADDICTION AND MENTAL DISEASE There is plenty of tax money to fund endless numbers of grotesque and useless "experiments"where perfectly healthy animals areturned intodrug addicts and alcoholics. No money is available, however, to help the millions of human beings who are being destroyed not only by the drugs and aleohol they are addicted to, but also by the utter hopelessness they feel when life-saving treatment is denied them becauss of this criminal waste of precious resources. The same applies to the increasing numbers of mentally ill people who are often totally ignored, while incredibly huge amounts of money are poured by the National Instrtutes of Mental Health and other sources into psychological and other "experiments" whereanimals are driven insane. It is important to remember that the overwhelming majority of homeless people are drug addicts, alcoholics, and/or mentally ill idividuals. WHY ANIMAL EXPERIMENTATION IS A MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC FRAUD The medicai and scientific fraud of vivisection is based on the following lies that the biomedical empire relentlessly spoonfeeds the public in countries all over the world with the hslp of the beholden media: LIE #1 : It is possible to re-create a naturally oa:urring human disease in a healthy animal (what researchers call "an animal model of a human disease"). SCIENTlFICFACT#1: h is by definrtion impossible. Trying to re-create spontaneous human diseases (naturally occurring diseases that arise from wrthin) in a healthy being constrtutes "experimental ra- search." It is impossible to re-create a naturally occurring human disease in a heaithy animal (or in a healthy human being for that matter) simply because once it Is "recreated,"It is artificial and is no longer the original, natural diseass.Clearly,"re-creation" and "spontaneous" are contradlctory terms. It then follows that experimental research cannot find cures for any diseases no maner how many millions of animal or human experiments are performed (human experiments are also common place). It is sometimes possible to re-create some of the symptoms of a disease but never the disease itseff. The exception to this fact is the case of infectious diseases. However, animals do not get human infectious diseases and we do not get theirs. Thls Is why vlvisectors cannot infect a single animal with human AIDS desprte massive efforts aimed at creating "an animal model of human AIDS." (Besides, a nonhuman animal cannot have a human disease because each species of animal is a drfferent biomechanical entrty.) Obviously, prevention is the ideal situation. Once disease has occurred, however, the only hope for a successful treatment and possible cure is clinical research, ortheobservation of human beings who have naturally occurrlng diseases. Clinical research is the only way to get valid answers. Tragically, we keep financing experlmental research to the almost total exclusion of prevention and clinlcal research. LIE #2: It is possibie to learn human anatomy and physiology by studying four legged animals (quadrupeds), fish, and/or birds. 5ClENTIFICFACT#2: Animals are totaily different from man and from each other genetically, histologically, anatomically, physiologically, immunologically, emotionally, psychologically, sexually, and socially. It Is clear that human medical cannot be based on veterinary medicine. LIE #3: It is possibie to predict human readions to drugs, vaccines, and other chemicals by testing them in animals. SCIENTIFIC FACT#3: Animals react drffersntly to drugs, vaccines, and other chemicals not only from man but also from each other. Hence the incalculabls damage to human health caused by pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines. LIE #4: Animal experimentation is useful in order to learn about animal diseases in veterinary schoofs. SCIENTIFIC FACT #4: No knowledge about animal diseases can be obtained by looking at artificially diseased anlmals (experimental research). Same reasons as in Scientrfic Fact #1 . THE NEW ANTIVIVISECTIONIST MOVEMENI The new antivivisectionist movement represented by SUPRESS is seeking the total abolition of animal experimentation and testing on medical and scientiflc ground:. For the first time ever, the public is being informed about one of the most supprsssed issues of the last 100 years: the connection between animal experimentation and the systematic devastation to our health, environment, and economy. BEWARE OF IHE "ANlMAL RIGHTS" TRAP The biomedical empire has a vested interest in promoting the sbgan "animai rights" because making vivisection a moral, ethical, philosophical, and/or religious issue Is the most effectlve way to shift the public's attentlon away from tts medical and scienttflc fraudulence. For decades the vivisectors have been able to disarm ths opposition by using the tired line: What will it be, your dog or your baby? (which implies that anyone opposed to animal experimentation is antihuman). We are now painfully aware of the fact that this emotional question tries to hide an indisputabls fact: Vivisectors routinely take the Iives of both the dog and the baby. Vivisection as it is presented to the public is not a moral issue. It is a msdical and scientific fssue, a human health issue. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please do not remove this advertisment!
