Cigarette company testing on beagles. Enjoy your cancer sticks.
me at my computer right now. Sicks bitches are sick. Those poor dogs :(
but but they’re just PUPPY DOGS!!!!
cig companies make me sick anyway. this is just disturbing.
I look this up to make sure this was true and it totally was. “In tobacco inhalation experiments, dogs, primates, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, lambs, chickens, rodents and other animals are mutilated, pumped full of nicotine and forced to inhale smoke. Dogs are forced to inhale cigarette smoke on mechanical ventilators. In one experiment, researchers cut holes in the throats of beagles’ and forced them to breathe concentrated cigarette smoke for an entire year. Other tests have involved inserting electrodes into dogs’ penises to measure the effect of cigarette smoke on sexual performance. Masks are strapped on to the faces of rats and mice while cigarette smoke is pumped directly into noses. Rhesus monkeys are confined to chairs with head devices, while being exposed to nicotine and caffeine to study effects on breathing.”
It seriously just keeps going on about what they did. That’s just a small sampling of the testing tobacco companies used to try to prove that their cigarettes were safe for human use.
If you happen to be somebody who smokes. Try to find a way to quit. Just about everything that can go wrong in your body is made worse by smoking. Just like trying to do anything healthy for you body. It’s going to be hard to change that. But know just as you have support for losing weight, or fighting eating disorders, there is also the same support for you to quit smoking here on tumblr.
Wow, didn’t need to see this today.
I want to make something very fucking clear: there is a very big difference between approved protocols involving testing with animals that a) do not promote practices that intentionally cause undue harm to the animals and that b) help us learn about those animals/promote better living or understanding of humans. This is neither and it’s disgusting and it makes me ashamed that I ever smoked.
It also bums me out because, as someone who works in a lab that does testing with mice, already have to defend my involvement on a regular basis - this is the kind of testing people imagine and it is not what we do - it is not what most labs do. Horrible.
