Help us stop the radiation tests
It looks like a science fiction movie, and yet it is a sad reality at a German university: rats stuck in tight plastic tubes, only the nose and tail sticking out. For hours, the defenseless animals be squeezed and irradiated every day. At the end of the test series, they are killed, useful results for the people: zero. PETA investigators were able to film the sad life of these animals, and PETA has now reimbursed criminal charges on suspicion of violating the Animal Welfare Act. Please call us with the leaders of the Jacobs University in Bremen, off such attempts immediately.

Background information
Rats and hamsters are forced at Jacobs University to live in tiny cages. Even if these cages maybe we will accept just the legal requirements, they have absolutely nothing to the real needs of a rat or a hamster to do. One of the employees told it again and again biting among animals is probably because they are bored and stressed by the tests. Rats are abused for irradiation experiments in which they have to endure every day for 2 hours squeezed into tiny plastic tubes. After 2 years, they are killed. hamsters to snakes fed hamsters also be grown - these are confined in tiny cages the size of a shoebox. The cages are so small that even the territorial behavior of these animals is overridden, so they can be kept in groups. It Hamsters are solitary in nature. In addition, the employees told quite simply, that may a colleague who keeps snakes at home, also from time to time to take a hamster. This clearly violates the Animal Welfare Act.

Futile attempts to cell phone radiation
with the animal studies will investigate whether mobile phone radiation can be harmful to people. Although other respected scientists criticize this, use Prof. Lerchl and his team for these experiments animals. The results of the tests are useless for the people, because the differences between rats and humans are simply too big. Prof. Lerchl and the industry earnings of Lerchl radiation experiments:. "No Risks from mobile phone radiation" Hardly surprising, because the professor is considered industry's needs and therefore was even rejected by the WHO as an expert. In addition, Jacobs University of the Vodafone Foundation is funded ... PETA filed a complaint PETA has filed a complaint against those responsible, because our research has shown clear evidence of violations of the Animal Welfare Act. We also have Prof. Lerchl and the President and the Vice President of Jacobs University wrote a letter to her appeals to stop the attempts immediately.

Another pointless cruel experiment on creatures that have as much right to be on this planet as we do
When will man stop thinking that he is the superior being on earth Man is the one that is destroying the planet not the animals

This testing for cell phone radiation will not work anyway as rats and humans are oh so different.
