Every year UCLA receives millions of dollars in grants to fund outdated experiments on animals, which do not advance medical science. Amongst many futile experiments, recreational drug addiction experiments are carried out on monkeys funded by your tax dollars.
The fact is that after 100 years of massive animal based research at a cost of billions of taxpayer’s dollars, crippling and deadly diseases of all kinds are affecting an ever increasing number of people. Far from curing anything, we are losing the ground in the fight against cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, AIDS, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s to name a few.
