FDA at work?

Animal rights groups might be interested in this...

A choice quote from MSNBC today:

“In many ways, rats and mice get greater protection as research subjects in the United States than do humans,” said Arthur L. Caplan, chairman of the department of medical ethics at the University of Pennsylvania.

Animal research centers have to register with the federal government, keep track of subject numbers, have unannounced spot inspections and address problems speedily or risk closing, none of which is true in human research, Mr. Caplan said.

  1. The MSNBC report is largely nonsense.

    MSNBC has largely become the National Enquirer of the news business.

  2. John-

    I agree that MSNBC isn't a very reliable source, however this article was originally published in the New York Times....

    What parts of the article do you think are nonsense?
