Movember's link to vivisection

MEN should stop and think before they rush to grow a moustache this November. Some of the money raised through the Movember initiative (which requires participants to grow a moustache throughout the month of November) is used to fund vivisection.

As well as being cruel, animal experiments are a tragic waste of money raised in good faith, since fundamental differences between species mean that the results cannot be reliably translated to humans.

It's easy to support humane and productive non-animal research into cancer and mental health. For a free guide on which charities fund vivisection, contact Animal Aid on 01732 364 546 or email isobel@animalaid.co.uk.
