Animal Research

February 09, 1992

The article may have had a catchy headline but it also is a misleading one. The use of dogs in research experimentation is hardly an animal rights issue. It is a scientific issue.

The Britannica hired Dr. Michael Fox, an authority in his field, to write on a subject which he knows well. It is shocking that there are those in the scientific community who want to suppress the facts in this issue. Perhaps this is why we still have heart disease, cancer and diabetes as major causes of human deaths, as they have been for many years, despite millions upon millions of dollars spent for experiments on dogs and other animals.

The Encyclopaedia Britannica is to be commended for giving us the facts.
