05/19/2022 New Study Findings Could Reduce Animal Testing In The Medical Field

The findings of a new study could reduce animal testing in the medical field. Together, researchers from the US’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Inotiv Inc., and the Consumer Product Safety Commission produced a new method for screening skin allergens. The researchers examined 92 chemicals. Seventy-seven percent of the results “agreed with those of a common animal test method.” According to NIST, the new effective method is not just more ethical than animal testing, but “potentially cheaper and faster” too. Published in the journal Toxics, the researchers hope their method will become standardized. This will therefore reduce the number of animals used in science. (plantbasednews.org)

05/12/2022 Petition Calls For Drastic Reduction In Animal Farming

World leaders have been urged to take meaningful climate action by reducing global meat and dairy production. A petition that garnered more than 53,000 signatures was submitted to various higher-ups last week (May 5), reaching the leaders of America, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, the EU, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, South Korea, and the UK. Animal protection organization Compassion in World Farming (CIWF), which distributed the petition, said the matter is one of increasing urgency. “Our global leaders cannot continue to bury their heads in the sand,” said Sarah Moyes, senior campaigns manager at CIWF. “Livestock emissions play a significant role in the current climate emergency, yet this has been virtually overlooked by world leaders.” (plantbasednews.org)
