DON'T LET 80,000 MORE ANIMALS DIE FOR EPA's SAME OLD CHEMICAL SCREENS

    1. Petition by

      KINSHIP CIRCLE

Can Someone Introduce The Environmental Protection Agency To 21st Century Science?

EPA has invested millions in its ANIMAL-FREE Computational Toxicology Research Program, ToxCast™, for development of “new and innovative methods.” EPA recognizes “quantitative high-throughput screening (qHTS) assays” as key in the evaluation of toxic pathways. It provides “Data Sets & Published Research” to support non-animal assays. ToxCast™ Factsheet

So why will EPA torture and kill 80,000 animals over a span of years for its Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP)? The agency has rejected 90 percent of pesticide company requests to use in vitro tests in place of animals.

Politely demand that EPA permit use of animal-free ToxCast to screen chemicals for endocrine disruption.

      You are murderers with no conscience and no humanity. You deserve justice tortured you the same way as you do to these poor innocent animals. GO TO HELL!
