could be tested on people for the first time in just one to two years.

And it's so subtle no one will notice!

Disgusting. Blinding mice and monkeys to test treatments for humans. Obscene. If you want to test it, do it on humans. Maybe some of the people who think animals don't feel pain or fear would like to volunteer? Not so brave now are you? No human is worth the millions of animals who suffer and die at the hands of scientists. I would rather die than accept treatment that has caused an animal to suffer.

It would be ironic if Jane was a diabetic, like PETA Senior Vice President MaryBeth Sweetland.

Kinda wondering why a baby face would be used as an image for testing mice. Are babies the natural predators of meeses?

Three blind mice. See how they run. Into things.

We've been able to give mice vision, reattach spinal cords, create longer life..I will say this, we're only a couple years away from curing all disease for mice. It's going to be rodent utopia soon.

/Cat population still a problem
