Most people would never want to hurt an animal and it would never occur to many of us that animals are put through agonizing tests for the products we may buy.  Did mice lose their lives so that Procter and Gamble could see if your toothpaste really whitened your teeth?  Was your bleach poured in the eyes and down the throats of rabbits?  Is it any safer to drink?  Please, you can make a difference.  Don't buy while they die!

No laws require product or cosmetic testing on animals.  These tests do not make the products safe, they simply protect corporations from lawsuits.  Procter and Gamble alone kills 80,000 animals a year, for products like Secret, Iams, Downy, Ivory, Tide, Crest, and Cover Girl.  They've blinded animals and poisened them by dripping substances into rabbits' eyes, smearing them onto guinea pigs' abraded skin, forcing them down the throats of mice, and filling rats' cages with their fumes.  The animals shake, vomit, bleed from their nose and mouth, and then die.  And those products are not any safer.

More than 550 companies such as Seventh Generation, Tom's of Maine, Paul Mitchell Systems, Kiss My Face, Amway, Revoln, Estee Lauder, the Body Shop, Avon, and Banana Boat make cosmetics and other products without testing them on animals.  Many of these products contain no animal ingerdients as well.

Every purchase you make can be a vote for kindness and compassion, or just more darkness and death.  Buy Tom's of Maine toothpaste, Kiss My Face soap and sunblock, and Seventh Generation bleach.  These products are offered at a variety of stores, from Whole Foods and Henry's, to Albertsons.

"In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people."
