Lethal Laws: Animal Testing, Human
Health & Environmental Policy
By Alix Fano
the last 150 years, chemicals have been tested on animals
for the alleged purpose of protecting the public from their
dangerous effects. Lethal Laws reveals that using animals
as surrogates is not only unethical, it is bad science.
Alix Fano provides a meticulous analysis
of the technical and scientific problems that have plagued
animal tests for decades, but which have not been forcefully
challenged until now.
In a field dominated by male voices,
this is a pioneering work by a woman that effectively demonstrates
the causal link between animal testing and environmental degradation,
and the subsequent deterioration of human health.
"Cogently argued and well researched,
Ms Fano's analysis is a 'must read' for anyone involved in
environmental health policy or public health." - Andrew
Kimbrell, author of The Human Body Shop
"A grand synthesis of ideas and
science that critically reviews a central dogma of toxicological
research. Alix Fano's book may prove to be the best intellectual
treatise for the critical position she puts forward."
- Sheldon Kimsky, co-author of Agricultural Biotechnology
and the Environment
"Helps reawaken the ancient idea
that other species are not merely objects for human exploitation
and experimentation, they are members of the earth family."
"A thoroughly documented, scientific
indictment of the current addiction to animal testing..."
- David Phillips, Earth Island Institute
Vivisection or Science?
By Prof Pietro Croce
(New English Edition)
the stream of hi-tech drugs continues to multiply and a huge
number of animals (in Britain alone, over two and a half million
each year) are used in medical experiments, debate continues
about reliable methods for biomedical research and their adequacy
in protecting human health from new products and procedures.
In this book, a leading Italian medical
researcher concludes, after years of himself practising animal
experimentation and vivisection, that the traditional reliance
on these techniques is scientifically misplaced.
Published originally in Italian (where
it has been through many editions), translated into German
and Japanese, and now available in a completely revised and
updated edition in English, Professor Croce's classic work
constitutes a powerful argument to which both the general
public and the medical profession need to pay attention.
He documents with a wealth of fascinating
detail precisely how the scientific anti-vivisection movement
has constructed a rational case, as opposed to a sentimental
or ethical argument.
He highlights the increasing dangers
to human health resulting from the animal experimenters' assumption
that the biological systems of humans and other species are
sufficiently similar for valid biomedical comparison.
Professor Pietro Croce headed the Research
Laboratory of the L. Sacco Hospital in Milan for many years,
in addition to working in various research departments in
US and Spanish hospitals. He is the author of a number of
medical works in Italian and Spanish.

Animal Experimentation: A Harvest
By Moneim A Fadali, MD
is an extremely powerful book. It is a strong statement, not
only on the question of animal experimentation, but also on
our attitudes to and treatment of 'others' on this planet:
individual humans, sexes, races, religions, animals, plants,
nature, the whole environment.
Despite the disturbing subject-matter,
Dr Fadali (who is also an eminent poet) writes in a beautiful,
poetic style, which carries the reader along. The Author gives
a wealth of examples demonstrating the uselessness of vivisection
and harmfulness to humans, as well as the resulting loss of
Dr Fadali writes: "Love is the ink
for this book...", adding "Persevere upright, the
task is not impossible..."
"Dr Fadali has taken a complex and
difficult issue, and rendered it comprehensible. He examines
animal experimentation, not only from an ethical standpoint,
but also from an eminently practical view of the problem it
has caused for both doctors and patients."
Neal D. Barnard MD, President, Physicians Committee for Responsible
Medicine, Washington D.C.
"It takes a surgeon/scientist of
Doctor Fadali's stature, clarity and courage to debunk the
dogma of the 'indispensability of animal research.' In this
remarkable book, he illuminates the dark dungeons of animal
experimentation with the bright lights of reason and compassion.
I commend Dr Fadali and highly recommend his book."
Dr Michael Klaper
"In rhythmic, almost Shakespearian,
prose surgeon Moneim Fadali walks us through 2,000 years of
medical history to show that sacrificing animals at the altar
of medical science has done nothing to advance, and much to
retard, the growth of medical procedures and knowledge. He
interweaves his own experience of medicine - in a way that
is at once personal and highly credible. This book deserves
the widest possible readership."
Brandon P. Reines, DVM President
"Doctor Fadali's book is a significant
and important contribution to the growing weight of published
evidence which reveals the sham of vivisection. It is long
past time that we closed the book on vivisection and turned
our minds and our talents to the task of halting the apparently
relentless increase in illness and promoting good health.
If we don't, the outlook for our children and grandchildren
is not good..."
Dr Eddie Moore, OStJ, MD, ChB, MF Hom, MF, GM
"Love is the ink for this book."
In which page? you ask. I could easily answer you with cold,
impersonal numbers. I prefer not to. This ink flows through
the entire book; it meanders through every single phrase,
even through the most technical and scientific information..."
Pietro Croce, MD, Prof Emeritus, Pathology, University of
"Dr Fadali has drawn on deep insight
and long experience from his training and practice as a specialist
and consultant in thoracic and cardiovascular surgery to produce
a text that is passionate, informative and original as well
as highly readable."
Dr Peter Mansfield, MD, MB, BChir, FPCert, GAM

Illustrates why an increasing number of doctors and medical
scientists worldwide are speaking out against vivisection,
with quotations from doctors throughout this century.
Slaughter of the Innocent
an introduction by Robert S Mendelsohn MD, this book washes
away the thin excuses of doctor-apologists for animal testing.
Comprehensively and carefully documented, the book is objective
and emotionally compelling. In 9 parts across 400 pages, this
paperback looks at fixed attitudes to vivisection, covering
the evidence, facts and fantasies, dehumanisation and moral
'Shocking and deeply disturbing...a wel-documented objective
and compelling work.' Publishers Weekly
