The following is in response to the letter by Jacque Kenner (May 18):
I am sorry to be the one to blast Kenner's head out of the sand, but it is more than likely that her life is owed to "the death and suffering of thousands of animals." Has she never been vaccinated? Has she never taken any medicine? Had surgery?
Well, guess how all those things came to be? Just in terms of medications, years and years of precise animal research has been carried out just to make sure that that remedy you are buying will not kill you when you use it.
Before the anesthesiologist puts you to sleep so that you feel no pain when the surgeon operates, years and years of animal research were done to make sure that that anesthetic and that surgical procedure will cure you rather than kill you.
