Dr. Francis S. Collins, Director National Institutes of Health

In Defense of Animals points out, "Animal experiments failed to demonstrate that exposure to cigarettes and tobacco smoke caused lung and other forms of cancer, which is now undisputed in humans."

So the point of continuing these cruel experiments is WHAT? Other than to collect government funding? We don't want our tax money to go towards conducting nicotine experiments on pregnant and newborn animals - we already know that pregnant mothers should not smoke. Stop testing and torturing animals in useless experiments to collect goverment funding.

Quirky Law could KILL thousands of innocent animals!
More than 8 million of the 47 million U.S. adult cigarette smokers have a serious illness caused by smoking, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Tobacco also costs the economy $96 billion a year for medical care. To counter the bad press, the tobacco industry has created new “light” tobacco products they claim are less harmful. In order to make that claim, a quirk in the law requires the products to be tested on thousands of animals.
