Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes the science-based campaign For Life On Earth which is critical of avoidable experiments on animals; is alarmed that all studies measuring the claimed ability of animals to predict human responses expose a low success rate in the region of 31 per cent; further notes that a success rate in the region of 90 per cent is required by medical practice; further notes that the National Cancer Institute has said that cures for cancer have been lost because studies in rodents have been believed; acknowledges the Concordat on Openness on Animal Research which is committed to developing communications with the media and public; and calls for properly moderated scientific public debates on the misleading practice of trying to apply results from animal experiments to human patients.
