The Cambridge, Mass., City Council voted unanimously to enact a first-in-the-nation ban on commercial laboratory testing of animals within the city. The ban will affect research on more than 50,000 animals that is now occurring within the six-square-mile city, officials estimated. The animals are used to test cosmetics, tobacco products, industrial chemicals, pesticides and engine exhaust. The ordinance does not affect researchers who conduct laboratory tests of animals for human medical research, officials said.
