Absolutely appalling. This is just an excuse for vivisectors to carry on using dogs for human research. Bogus and fraudulent.
Cancer is not a genetic disease. SOme people may have a predissposition to cancer but it does not mean they will get it.
Its all about diet and lifestyle!!

what about the enviromental issues and cancer. In Thesaloniki (Greece) cancer has increased by multibles after the war in Yugoslavia and Chernobil. In Greece every 3rd person will at some time develop some form of cancer..... Where are the genes there? Every pet I owned developed cancer due to exposure to eviromental contamination. I as well fear just for an other excuse to experiment a bit further - after all dogs are more prone due to higher sensitivity than their owners whilst exposed to the same enviromental conditions - sort of an amplifier.
