Sacred Cows and Golden Geese: The Human Cost of Experiments on Animals
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.

This is a very biased book, and I want to believe it, so I'm dubious. But, given that I can't find any well researched argument supporting the idea that animals are adequate models for human disease, I am inclined to agree with it for now. The chapter on organ donation (can an animal "donate" an organ?) seemed like a bunch of alarmist speculation, but that may just be my unhealthy lack of concern for viruses. And the focus on education, prevention and policy change mostly made up for it anyway. This book also changed my mind about carcinogenics in food and personal care products.
