Groping On Trains In Japan Vids

EU tightens regulations for animal testing Greyhounds

* Are encouraged to substitute alternative methods satisfactory experiments
* Every year 12 million animals used in scientific procedures
* is prohibited, without exception, experimentation on great apes

The Twenty-seven agreed on Tuesday in the Council of the European Union promote higher standards for animal testing , which is renewed with significant changes the current legislation is in force since 1986.

experiments will need to have prior authorization from the authorities and advocates developing alternative methods which replaced the use of animals in laboratory tests. In addition, national centers will be established whose function is similar, in the English case, the English Red Development of Alternative Methods to Animal Testing (REMA).

The text, adopted by the 27 aims to reduce "the Pussycat" the number of specimens tested to , without compromising the quality of the results and eliminate "pain and suffering" which is subjected to these animals. The final objective aims to "fully replace testing on live animals as possible from the scientific point of view"

The initiative has been welcomed by the NGO ' Eurogroup for animals', and "It is un paso importante aunque no sea el giro de 180º que hace falta", como ha especificado en un comunicado su directora Sonja Van Tichelen.

Desde la división española de esta ONG, la Asociación Nacional para la Defensa de los Animales (ANDA), su director de comunicación, Alberto Díez, ha declarado a que "están de acuerdo con el deseo y el fondo del texto, pero se podía haber hecho más, porque la propuesta deja varias puertas abiertas".

Se prohíben los experimentos con los grandes simios

These issues, referred Díez, are all about experimentation on great apes, chimpanzee, gorilla and orangutan. experimentation is prohibited animals that are endangered, except that a Member State may authorize its use if the goal is the conservation of the species.

Another of the assumptions that allow experimentation on great apes is if there is a clinical condition , unexpectedly, that threatens human life .

ANDA spokesman, Alberto Diez, made clear that "no choice about whether or not animals experience because it is a sterile discussion. The research is there, but it must be as narrowly as possible, and above all seek the promotion, use and validation of alternative methods."

The directive also covers other animals that were not covered by the measures taken in 1986, and certain vertebrates, larvae, fetuses of mammals in the last trimester of pregnancy and cephalopods.
