Dump the EPA's Toxic Waste!
White Coat Waste Project has exposed how the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is wasting millions of your tax dollars on cruel, misleading and outdated air pollution tests on animals that most Americans oppose and the agency acknowledges are slow, costly and ineffective.
The tests at EPA's National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory -- which uses 20,000 rabbits, mice, and other animals each year -- include:
- animals forced to breathe diesel exhaust and smog
- animals force-fed lard to make them obese and then exposed to air pollution
- pregnant animals stressed with light and noise
- baby animals given electric shocks
Thanks to your advocacy, Congress is taking action to curb this waste and abuse, but there is more work to be done. Is this how you want your money spent?
Tell the EPA to dump this toxic government waste!
