Thanks for sharing the news.<br><br>
They are wrong that they need animals for experiments though. Some scientists already disagree.<br><br>
and you wonder what kind of gap there is in the braintrust when you read this quote from the article<br>
"<br>
The university’s veterinarian also noted that the conditions under which pigs had been treated – including being anesthetized while trainees operated on them and killed before regaining consciousness – were far more humane that those of hogs slaughtered for meat."<br><br>
Wow! Now that's a comparison. Compare training doctors to a slaughterhouse....hmmmmmm. Such intellectual vigour!
