Spokesperson Alex Irving addresses the gathering at Grimston
BELOW ARE THE LINKS ALEX HIGHLIGHTS IN HER SPEECH
The British Medical Journal
Leading scientific journals are increasingly highlighting the fact that these atrocities to animals are also harming human patients, as illustrated by the British Medical Journal's Editor's Choice, June 2014, titled 'How Predictive and Productive is Animal Research?'
WHAT WE ARE CALLING FOR
Oppose B&K Universal are calling the Government's chief scientific adviser Sir Mark Walport to step into the debate arena and face his medical opposition - represented by leading expert Dr Ray Greek - in public scientific debate hearings judged by scientific experts from relevant fields. These hearings are already supported in parliament by many MPs, and will enable the Govt. and public to hear evidence exposing and proving that Government pro-vivisection science advisers are decades out of date with current medical understanding. Up-to-date science proves why experiments on Beagles, and other animals, are not capable of predicting the responses of human patients in drug testing or disease research.
HUMAN BASED RESEARCH
Alex talks of non-animal medical research bio-technologies currently in use which are predictive in human medicine. Don't be fooled into thinking animal research is all or nothing until we can find replacements, this is a spin by the animal experimentation community to maintain the impression that one day in the distant future they will get there.

DR RAY GREEK - THE WORLD LEADING MEDICAL EXPERT ON THE INVALIDITY OF THE ANIMAL MODEL
Alex talks of the world's leading medical expert Dr Ray Greek and his indisputable evidence based on current scientific understanding that animals are incapable of predicting for human medicine. Oppose B&K Universal's scientific evidence is therefore illustrated by Dr Ray Greek who is President of Americans / Europeans For Medical Advancement and has widely published on this issue in peer reviewed science articles in addition to books. Most recently in July 2015 Dr Ray Greek was invited to testify at the European parliament on the invalidity of animal experiments. please visit this link
