Cancer has long been cured in mice but not in people. Why? Successful laboratory treatments and cures for one species don't necessarily result in cures for humans. But, because practice has become economically entrenched within medical industry, animal experimentation -against all medical evidence- continues.The human benefits of animal experimentation- a bedrock of the scientific age- is a myth perpetuated by an amorphous but insidious network of multibillion-dollar special interests: research facilities, drug companies, universities, scientisits, and even cage manufacturers.C.Ray Greek, MD, and veterniary dermatologist, Jean Swingle Gree, DMV, show how the public has been deliberately misled and blow the lid off the vested-interest groups whose hidden agendas put human health at risk.

Editorial Reviews

"Beautifully written, urgently conceived, comprehensively researched, Sacred Cows and Golden Geese is a desperately needed book that has the potential to incite a major shift in the thinking of millions of people. By relentlessly accessing the data with a stern objectivity, and compassionate embrace of the issues, Ray and Jean Greek have doen what no other authors have yet accomplished: calmly, powerfully, convincingly explained why invasive animal research is a montrous deception. The Greeks are likely to find themselves in the midst of a firestorm. What they have uncovered will make countless industries, universities, foundations, and institutions as grand as the National Institutes of Health quake in their sleep." --Michael Tobias
