BUAV Reveals Animal Experiments By Food Companies

June 21, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection, the Campaign to End All Animal Experiments, released the results of its research showing some of the world's leading food companies are conducting animal tests. Data presented by the BUAV revealed Yakult, Danone, Nestlé, Unilever, and other food companies have conducted animal experiments to identify health benefits of some foods aimed at developing "super foods". Animals subjected to experiments included mice, rats, rabbits, and pigs, the organization claims. For example, Yakult researchers starved rats for 20 hours then force-fed with probiotic bacteria to determine whether the company's probiotic yogurt drink can protect humans from stomach injury, and Unilever scientists killed and examined pregnant rabbits and their fetuses to study the use of African shrub Hoodia gordonii as an ingredient of a weight-reduction product.
