Idiots Try to Find a Cure For Human
Cancer by Injecting Mice With Human Cancer Cells
September 2, 2001
Let's see: in order to find a
cure for human colon cancer, we'll take some human colon cancer cells and
inject them into mice. Then we'll try to kill those cancer cells in
the mice. If that happens, we've accomplished something. NOT.
This is what Swedish
scientists "accomplished." Even the pro-animal-research New
York Times had to admit
that "[m]any treatments that look promising in mice prove disappointing
when they are tested on people."
If it works in a mouse but
that doesn't tell you if it works in a human, why bother?
What if it doesn't work in a
mouse? Does that mean it couldn't work in a human? Of course
Let's reverse roles, and
assume we want to cure a type of mouse cancer. If we took some mouse
cancer cells and injected them into a human, then killed the cells in the
human, would that mean anything about whether we could accomplish the same
thing in a mouse?
What if we want to cure a
type of cancer that pigs get? If we inject an elephant with the pig
cancer cells, and then kill the cells in the elephant, has that brought us
closer to being able to cure that cancer in the pig?
Read this fine example of
speaking truth to power by cancer research scientist Irwin D.J. Bross,
Ph.D., director of biostatistics at Roswell Park Memorial Institute in New
Not a single new drug for
the treatment of human cancer was first picked up by an animal model
system...the results of animal model systems for drugs or other
modalities have done nothing but confuse and mislead the cancer
researchers who have tried to extrapolate from mice to man.
Moreover, when they have
been used to guide clinical research they have sent investigators on one
long and costly wild goose chase after another. Thus, scientifically
speaking, the animal studies are a fraud.
[vivisectors] will concede that animal models don't work, but they shrug
this off because nothing works. [from PETA, which has much
additional info on their site]
When those who needlessly
torture and kill laboratory animals die and are awaiting entrance to either
Heaven or Hell, they will hopefully find to their everlasting dismay that
God is a huge mouse.
