Losing battle?

SIR - So, I’m not the only one who doesn’t support charities that test on animals. Well said Sharon L Howe from Fortescue Road (“Opinion Extra”, October 21). Sadly, convincing others is a losing battle.

The irony is, animal experiments are misleading and can actually hold up medical progress. In addition to Animal Aid, mentioned by Sharon, check out the Lord Dowding Fund for Humane Research.

In most cases, cancer is preventable, but only a small percentage of money is spent on preventative measures.

We live in a toxic environment – the air we breathe, food we eat, products we use around the home and on our bodies, all add up to a lethal cocktail.

Animals should not have to suffer because we choose to live the way we do.
