Goal: Do not test the effects of cigarette smoking on animals.
Tobacco companies test the effects of smoking on animals by forcing them to breathe in cigarette smoke through a mask for up to 6 hours a day, and for months on end. The animals are then killed, so their livers and lungs can be removed and observed by scientists.
Animal testing in tobacco labs is unnecessary because the link between disease and smoking has already been publicly well-documented. Scientists and consumers know that smoking is not healthy, and that using these products can cause a variety of illnesses, including many cancers that may lead to death. Tobacco companies test cigarettes on animals to form misleading results and deny the link between cigarettes and cancer. For example, animals do not always develop the same diseases as humans, creating what a appears to be a minimal tobacco effect in the lab. Testing continues so these companies can attempt to protect their agenda with biased animal experimentation.
Tobacco companies have been known to test their products on animals such as beagles and lab rats. These animals smoke cigarette after cigarette all day, until the smoke has damaged their health sufficiently. They are then dissected to observe the effects smoking has had on their organs.
Testing tobacco products on animals is cruel and unnecessary. Tell the FDA to ban cigarette companies from testing their products on lab animals. No animal should be forced to smoke cigarettes through tubes and masks, only to be killed for research on a health matter that has already been settled.
Tobacco companies are unnecessarily testing their products on animals by forcing them to smoke, and then killing them to observe the effects of smoking on their organs.
Cigarette companies use this research to deny the link between cancer and smoking—a link that has already been well established worldwide. Their cruel testing on animals is a last-ditch effort to produce biased results and maintain consumers for tobacco products.
I urge you to ban tobacco companies from practicing needless and inhumane animal testing. No animal should be tied to smoke masks and tubes in order to die for unnecessary and desperate research.
