good news about animal testing.
Another paper wandering over my desk.
Testing for insulin without the pitter-patter of little feet
In the January issue of Clinical Biochemistry, scientists and physicians with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine outline the method used to develop a cruelty-free ELISA for human insulin that uses monoclonal antibodies produced by cells cultured in an animal-serum-free medium.

This is good news... I guess... I don' take any drugs, prescription, nonprescription, whatever. Not even an advil. There are no drugs in my food, since it is all organic and nonmedicated. I plan to take a cleanse this month.
Why are we testing OUR medicine, which, by the way, is complete poison... On animals?
It makes you wonder.
Thanks for the post. I've been a member of the PCRM for years. They really are a great organization. They send out one of the best magazines I ever get to read. They really have made an impact on removing some animal tests from Universities. They always do great research and studies on nutrition as well. If you are not a member, I really think you should check them out:
