"I would not want to promote research on animals. Fortunately, only my back is twisted, not my mind."
Linn Pulis, polio victim
what's most twisted is that all this 'research' isn't done to cure anything - that would deplete a source of income.
"The reason why I am against animal research is because it doesn't work. It has no scientific value. One cannot extrapolate the results of animal research to human beings, and every good scientist knows that."
Robert Mendelsohn, M.D., Late Professor of Pediatrics, U. of Illinois College of Medicine
mendelsohn wrote several good books and had a radio show too.
the quacks didn't like him because he told the truth.
his physics prof, btw, was none other than enrico fermi!
Thanks Prad for sharing that info.
"If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. ... Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."
Frederick Douglass, American abolitionist (1818-1895)
