You should know that candymaker Mars, Inc,. creator of M&M's, Snickers, Twix, Dove, Three Musketeers, Starburst, Skittles, and ther candies, funds deadly animal tests, even though there are more reliable human studies and not one of the tests is required

We already know eating this crap will kill you. What possible reason could this company have for doing this to animals in 2012? I already stopped buying Lipton tea for their testing on animals, I'll just add Mars candy to my list of verboten companies. There's plenty of better candy from companies that don't condone cruelty.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Read, noted, & signed petition, thanks Cher! I don't even get the reasoning behind the "supposed need" to test or experiment on animals, period, much less for food or candy products!! It's food, for Pete's sake, it's not like they're trying to find a cure for some life-threatening disease, &, even that I personally don't agree with testing animals for! Use people "guinea pigs" for people issues & concerns, or inanimate alternative testing "dummies", leave animals alone!!

Signed and noted, although the petition letter has been directed at us rather than at Mars, this with the full Mars address which has been included, it makes me wonder whether Animal Advocates are going to bother to send it to them, or that they expect us to write to Mars individually. Badly written petitions really do frustrate me!

In their behaviour toward creatures, all men were Nazi’s. The smugness with which man could do with other species as he pleased exemplify the most extreme racist theories the principle that might is right. Lest we forget!
