Lethal Laws - Animal Testing, Human Health and Environmental Policy
By Alix Fano. Published by Zed Books, 1997.
242 pages, A5, well-indexed and referenced, softback. For the last 150 years, chemicals have been tested on animals for the alleged purpose of protecting the public from their dangerous effects. Lethal Laws reveals that using animals as human surrogate is not only unethical, it is bad science. Alix Fano provides a meticulous analysis of the technical and scientific problems that have plagued animal tests for decades. She shows how animal testing has been used as an alibi to allow the continued use of thousands of toxic chemicals.
"A thoroughly documented, scientific indictment of the current addiction to animal testing.
It makes a compelling case for companies to wake up to the non-animal technologies that already exist, and get off the animal testing treadmill."
