Europe to Test 30,000 Chemicals upon Millions of Animals September 20, 2007 9:11 AM

TO: All People Who Care I am a private individual posting this message to help Laboratory Animals and us all. A new European Chemical Testing Policy called REACH has now been finalised by the European Union. Under these proposals 30,000 Chemicals of every kind - from those used in industrial processes to the ingredients of consumer products -will be tested on Millions of animals from mice to fish to dogs, causing untold suffering. Still worse, because of this reliance on outdated animal techniques, reliable and relevant information will not be provided and our safety will not be assured. This is URGENT because Testing has now started. If you believe that REACH should make more use of Alternative Testing to test 30,000 Chemicals that have been in general use since before 1985 then please take action now. If you are a European citizen please contact your local papers and own MEP asking them to promote the development of humane non-animal testing methods under the REACH legislation, which is the best hope we have for sparing animals the misery of a testing laboratory. For contact details of your MEPs visit http://www.europarl.europa.eu For all Non-European members, you can still help. Please tell all your colleagues and friends in the UK and Europe about REACH. Write to your own local papers to try and inform others about what is going on in Europe.

Thank You Tony, Nottingham, England  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
