Wasting Time & Money
We all know that breast cancer is a serious disease that affects most of us in some way (either personally or through someone we know), but did you know that it also affects animals?
In honor of October Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we bring you a very important message. Choose to donate to a “cruelty-free” Breast Cancer charity rather than an inhumane animal research charity.
According to both PETA and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, breast cancer charities should stop wasting time and money on inhumane experiments that don’t work: charities such as the American Cancer Society, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation fund cruel and archaic animal experiments.
Cruelty Free Charities
The charities that do not support animal cruel and needless animal research are the Love/Avon Army of Women, the American Breast Cancer Foundation, and the Breast Cancer Fund. They all put their resources into direct care, clinical studies, community education, and prevention-humane, effective programs that can really help us understand, prevent, and treat breast cancer while improving the quality of life for women with breast cancer.
The following is a list of health charities concerned with breast cancer & cancer research and treatment that DO NOT support animal experimentation:
American Breast Cancer Foundation
AP John Institute for Cancer Research
Avon Breast Cancer Crusade
Breast Cancer Fund
Cancer Care Services
Cancer Fund of America, Inc.
Gateway for Cancer Research
Quest Cancer Research
Rock Against Cancer
United Cancer Research Society
Medical Research Without Animals Experimentation
Monkeys, rats, mice, rabbits, cats, dogs, and other animals often suffer and die because of horrific tests that are conducted in the name of breast cancer “research.” Besides being cruel, the “research” is also ineffective. Former National Cancer Institute director Dr. Richard Klausner has stated, “The history of cancer research has been the history of curing cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for decades, and it simply didn’t work in humans.”
We can replace animal testing and animal experimentation with non-animal techniques that yield both ethical and technical advantages. Our breast cancer charity dollars should support those efforts. Change can happen if we become aware of who we truly support. Like Oprah says “When you know better; you do better.”
