How Can You Help Cure Breast Cancer?

As someone who has lost both of her parents to diseases without a cure, I have an idea of what it’s like to be frustrated knowing someone you love is sick and not knowing how what to do or how to help.

Breast cancer is a disease that affects millions of women and families every year, and for many of them, the only hope they have is in research being done to try to cure it. All hope is with charities and scientists—many of whom continue to fund animal testing.

The truth? The use of animals for breast cancer research is unreliable because of animals’ significant genetic, cellular, and physiological differences from humans. Former National Cancer Institute Director Dr. Richard Klausner has stated, “The history of cancer research has been the history of curing cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for decades, and it simply didn’t work in humans.”

We should all feel let down by this research and demand something better—an end not only to the cruelty of testing on animals but to the end of useless experiments that haven’t helped cure cancer. Repetitive, expensive, cruel and absolutely selfish tests continue to go on while women are still dying of breast cancer every day.

Please take a minute and send one single e-mail to executives of the organizations that still fund animal research. Ask them to support scientifically sound and humane research that can stop breast cancer before it starts.

Stay loud!

    Is there any facility care in the health reform that probably will go nowhere now?

    I told this exact same thing to my science teacher last year and she told me “Would you rather get a disease because they don’t allow testing on animals?” I told her that animal and humans have completely different physical differences and she said that that wasn’t true and that if we continue animal testing we can cure anything. It’s not true. As Rachel said, we’ve been able to cure cancer in mice and rats for years but we haven’t been able to cure it in humans. Coincedence? I think not.
    On another note, I’m going to be speaking up against cutting up frogs and a cat (and as a reward if you get the highest grade in the class you get to exclusively dissect a mother cat and her still un-born kittens ToT) in my next science class, so wish me luck!
    Animals unite for freedom!

    I think animal testing is good. Afterall, former National Cancer Institute Director Dr. Richard Klausner has stated, “The history of cancer research has been the history of curing cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for decades, and it simply didn’t work in humans.”
    Obviously, the animals were “diagnosed” with cancer, but then they were treated. So what’s the big deal? They got better.
    Everyone, people ARE animals. Our scientific classification is as follows:
    Kingdom: Animalia (Animal)
    Phylum: Chordata (Vertebraes)
    Class: Mammalia (Mammals)
    Order: Primates (Monkeys and Apes)
    Family: Hominidae (Great Apes)
    Subfamily: Homininae (Humans, Gorillas, Chimpanzees)
    Tribe: Hominini (Humans and Chimpanzees)
    Genus: Homo (Modern Humans & relatives)
    Species: H. sapiens (Humans)
    Subspecies: H. s. sapiens (True, modern human)

    I have an idea. Get a part of the cancer cell and perserve it in a very cold environment. When needed for testing, put it at the right tempiture it would be in the human body. Test to ur hearts content, record ur data, and see if the results are what u wanted. look under the microscope for more details. When u see that A cell did “this” when D molicule touched, burned, ect. it, ask, is this what i want? Trial and error till u get a laginament result u like. Know people will ether have to singlehandidly check the chemical with everything in the body (useing pursurved cells, of course) or make a system to check for reactions, like the mega computers at NASA. My head can’t take much more info… do u like my idea? ur allowed to add ideas to my idea :)

    I think animal testing is very wrong. Yeaa maybee they might be rats but they are still living animals No one wants their life taken away from them think about it what if you were a rat the most people dont like is their a reason to kill you if your not even doing anythingg thats wrong if you hate something or someone do you really want them to die out of expirements just because they might look for food in ur house. i also think the human thing is wrong just because they are rapist or murder they have a reason for it no one kills or rapes for no reason. You have too see that everyone deserves the chance to live like from the most ugly creature to the most F**ked up thing in life. WE ARE ALL THE SAME AND NEED THE SAME RESPECT

    before i say anything more i want to say i am a vegetarian, and i have been for several years. i have saved animals from kill shelters, and i volunteer with the local no-kill shelter. I am strongly against animal cruelty but there are laws in place that state before any medication/treatment/surgery can be tested on a human it must be proven to be mostly safe. right now, the MOST RELIABLE way to test this is animal testing. And while many of you say “you can test this on me” or “test it on pedophiles, or rapists” if you were told “we can test this drug on you, or on a mouse/rat. This may cause you to develop multiple forms of cancer, severe untreatable pain, aneurysms, sudden death, stroke, heart attack, a severely limited immune system, your hair may fall out, the drugs that will be injected into your blood stream will feel like someone is pouring fire into your veins, you may become violently ill, you may develop brain tumors that will kill you, etc.,” would you really accept? and there is an amendment in place that forbids cruel and unusual punishment for a crime. we currently do not have the technology to test on anything non-living, so for the moment were just gonna have to deal with a little bit of animal testing. A ton of different forms of cancer run in my family, including a really rare genetic form that wont go into remission, once youve got it you have at maximum 7 years to live. As much as I love animals, if it gave me, my grandparents, my parents, my future children, and countless other people alive both now and in the future to not die from cancer i think i could deal with it. and to a lot of the above posters who said exercise and a vegan diet could cure cancer–it cant. the chemotherapy weakened my grandpas immune system so much that he got pneumonia and has to be on oxygen all the time. he cant walk by himself. His body is too weak to survive on a vegan diet in its current state. the doctors have him on what is basically liquid protein to try to re-build the muscles in his legs so he can walk by himself. and even that is iffy. He has meet with tons of dietitians. My grandma asked about a vegan diet, a macrobiotic diet, anything to get rid of the cancer, and everyone said he wouldn’t be able to survive on it. Make sure you know what you’re talking about before you spout off about it.

    My mom is a breast cancer survivor THANK GOD and she never went through chemo! i told her i did not want her to because i saw how it effected my grandpa and in fact killed him quicker than the cancer itself. my mom is doing great and i am proud of her! no need to torture and kill animals for people SIMPLY because that is not what God wants! PEOPLE ARE NOT ANIMALS! you can sure cure something of a desease that you GIVE it! part of the proplem is finding a way to stop cancer completely!

    i just want to share that my mom has a breast cyst before…after her operation the cyst still coming back..the doctor said that she needs another operation…my mom decided to be a vegan that time. what a miracle that her breast cyst was becoming smaller until it is gone…she went to another doctor and the doctor said that eating animal protein is the reason for her breast cyst…until now my mom doesn’t eat animal product and she’s getting better and better…

Its disgusting and should be stopped now to help prevent anymore inncoent animals being killed.Yes it may be more expensive to use technological alternatives but its whats right and now that people are aware the companies using these methods should be seriously worried!

    People seem to think that testing on animals is an over all needed thing..obviously we all disagree. But I also disagree that we should be testing on people in prisons. I disagree with Prison all together. If you are going to test, why not have those that are sick and willing to take part in the tests do so? Would that not make more sense plus it would be people giving consent to do so. To me, that is the only way to find a real cure. Plus, if you look it up, there is evidance of cure sitting in labs but the price of it, and the unknown effects on humans keep it from being released.

    (To the Reviewer: sorry I kept double-pasting my comments previously!)
    ___________
    It makes me very sad to think that people feel they are wasting their time in raising money for cancer research. In response to prior comments, I therefore offer the following:
    When you make your arguments, try to flip everything around and prove to yourself that it works in the opposite direction.
    *If you were a scientist studying disease, would you waste your research money (from a grant, which is actually quite difficult and time-consuming to get) on an experiment you don’t think would teach you anything?
    *Similarly, if you were a scientist, would you waste your time complying with an almost ridiculous number of regulations about animal suffering, killing conditions, living conditions, cleanliness, etc., and money for the space and equipment for an animal testing facility, on an experiment you don’t think would teach you anything, and that would increase your interactions with regulatory agencies?
    *If you were a scientist interested in contributing to the curing of cancer, is it likely that you would also be interested in causing needless suffering?
    *If we stopped animal testing, would medicine continue to advance at the same rate?
    If animal experiments haven’t and don’t contribute anything to the understanding of cancer, then they wouldn’t be used. It is not as simple as testing a drug on an animal. Other experiments, even simple, observational ones, which may not seem even to have anything to do with disease, can contribute a piece to the puzzle of mammalian physiology. Understanding of this physiology is what gives us clues as to what treatments are possible, for diseases of all kinds.
    To clarify a few points:
    *not all scientific research is government-funded, and while government funding at least has the potential to be directed by taxpayers, private funds do not (this is where our power as consumers applies instead).
    *Scientists know that a drug experiment on a species different from the drug’s ultimate target is not ideal; it is in fact a major source of concern. If there were any other way to see how a whole, mammalian system deals with a drug, or a treatment, or how it simply functions, believe me, they would be using it. Artificial systems are already used for testing as much as possible — for instance, drugs for breast cancer are likely tested on breast cancer cells in a sterile container before anything else. But one cell type in a dish is a far cry from a whole, complex organism with many more chemical reactions going on inside (tens of thousands of reaction types, in the case of a mouse or a human). The jump from the single cell type to the mouse is a larger jump in complexity than that from the mouse to the human.
    *Scientists use other, less controversial, organisms with some of the same genes to elucidate those genes’ functions in mammals (that’s us). The more we learn about genes and how they are interconnected, the more we understand the similarities and differences between the physiologies of different animals, and can use that knowledge to do meaningful experiments of many kinds (not just animal experiments). So, in some cases, we can use organisms that we aren’t causing pain or suffering to increase some parts of our understanding. Yeast has contributed a tremendous amount to our knowledge, much because it grows fast, takes few resources, is not pathogenic (except under unusual circumstances), and has no nervous system (hence doesn’t feel pain). The fruit fly has probably contributed more to medical knowledge than any other animal (but I don’t hear anyone crying about them). Of course, the systems of a fungus and an insect are much less like ours than a mouse’s. The mouse isn’t as good as a human, but many of its systems function similarly to humans’ — its gene networks are far more similar to ours than those of yeast or fruit flies. And as you test on more and more complex and self-aware organisms, as I said, the more expensive, complicated, and regulated becomes their use.
    *Testing on humans is tremendously difficult and strictly regulated. It seems easy to say — hey, just test on me! But, regulations are in place that protect people against subtle forms of coercion into testing. (A less subtle scenario: hey — you’re homeless! Here’s 1000 bucks — that seems like a lot, right? All you have to do is let us inject you with something, and then let us watch you for six weeks while you live in a nice, warm, clean place with food. You might even be helping people. The testers must also be sure to say: the drug might kill you, or it might cause you pain, or it might give you cancer or some other expensive-to-treat condition 20 years down the road — and then NOT add: but you’d like this 1000 and a warm place to sleep and a meal NOW, wouldn’t you?. Or, another: your mom is sick with breast cancer. You should let us inject you with an experimental breast cancer drug, so that you can help her. Possible problems with this approach that the tester might leave out if they do not care about your health? The drug could have side effects, ranging from discomfort to death; the test subject doesn’t have breast cancer, so testing such a drug on them is meaningless.) Such regulations make testing on humans almost impossible unless there is a strong indication — i.e., success in a living animal model!! — that a drug is worth testing on humans!
    As consumers, we have the power to change how animals aid us in our society. I am glad that people want to know how animals are being treated in medical science, and that they would like to see things done in another way, if possible. I’m glad that, even when it serves our own needs, we find animal suffering in medical testing distasteful. We should always be aware of where the things we use come from.
    But, I would like to see more focus on processes where we really don’t need an animal to teach us anything: cosmetics and personal products, slaughtering practices; the wearing of exotic furs (obviously). Does the FDA require needless animal testing of products (drugs, cosmetics, etc) that have been tested over and over for the last 20 years? I don’t know, but this sort of question is more useful than a mindless, “stop testing!” This is, again, where our consumer forces come to bear. Stay educated about where the things you buy come from, and how they were developed. This can expand, too, into the fair treatment of people who are employed in the production of the things we buy.
    Simply yelling that people are dumb doesn’t make it so, and won’t convince people that what you think is right. Structure good arguments. Think, think, think! And keep educating!

    Well, these so-called “scientists” should understand that humans are not animals. The chemicals may not have the same results on the cancer patients it has on the animals.
    Hell, it can even harm the women, rather than help. It, for sure, harms the poor animals.
    Do they even understand that they’re just wasting money taking away lives of innocent animals for nothing?
    Even I understand that, and I haven’t even finished 8th grade.

    i acknowledge that testing on these animals did not work, but what other alternative is there? i have read some of the comments of people speaking out in anger and saying that they would test these drugs on themselves, but when the time actually came… would they? if your mother had breast cancer, would you give her an untested drug? or would you rather be sure its safe? i believe the most beneficial way to do this is to test on different animals until we find one that works, then do it in the most humane way possible. no human would test these drugs on themselves, or it would have already been done.

    “ok personally i think testing on dogs and cats and such is wrong but we do need to stop and find a cure for breast cancer so i personally think we could use over populated rats amoung the streets”
    PETA supports all animals not just dogs and cats, rodents feel pain too. So if you’re only here to support just a few types of animals then get the eff out.

    Like so many people, I’ve lost people I love dearly to cancer, but animal research is not the answer. I won’t ever support cancer research for the horrible acts of testing on innocent animals for a disease that is no closer to finding a cure through this method than it was decades ago. I wish more people would simply change their way of life (i.e. a vegan lifestyle, exercise, and smile more) and the body will respond. For those already suffering with illness, there are many holistic approaches that can be taken to heal, and not kill.

    me and my mother have been through some scary stuff with breast cancer, so i know what we are talking about, but still, i dont think that testing animals to find the cure is the right way to go, there are other ways

    ok personally i think testing on dogs and cats and such is wrong but we do need to stop and find a cure for breast cancer so i personally think we could use over populated rats amoung the streets its helping humans and were cutting down on the population of rats! yes i am an animal activist and im against animal testing but when it comes to cancer i think using over populated deseased animals its ok…. sorry peta im not to upset over this one oh yeah guys btw i have a rat :)

    Animal testing is so wrong. What gives scientists the right to abuse and mistreat all those poor animals. They have no right. Animal testing whether it is to try an find a cure for cancer or to test make up products is wrong. Animals have feelings, emotions, and personality. They are just like people.

    this is disgusting, they say that there is a cure for cancer just they aren’t giving it out which is stupid. these people are scientists, they are suppose to be smart, you would think after countless experiments on poor defenseless creatures they would realize that the animals are different from humans. they are just wasting money that could be used to actually find a cure without harming any living creature, on these experiments. this has to stop! and those animals need to be let free!

    it disgusts me that such things continue to go on everyday such as animal testing, and for such thing that are good, like research for breast cancer. i think if your testing for a human disease you should use a human. not a defenseless animal.

    i can’t even imagine the suffering they go through.

    there’s much better ways to find cures to cancer.
    instead of killing defenseless, poor little animals.
    when are people going to learn that animal testing is wrong in so many ways?

    Testing on animals is cruel and pointless!? YES!
    But there’s no need to say that scientists should test on human beings (asians, babies or even criminals) that’s stupid and unethical as well, you have some mental issues if you think that way.
    We need to stop animal testing b/c is not right at all; but we shouldn’t start another riot by supporting human testing.
    If you support your own race testing how in the bloody hell do you want to help animals?
    Think a little before you post some senseless comments.
    STOP ANIMAL TESTING!
    I love animals ♥ I totally support PETA!

    Isn’t it about time that we came up with more effective ways of treating cancers than the hopelessly inaccurate and misleading results we got from our animal friends?! We have only to think of Thalidamide…successful in other animals but disastrous to man. Or what about penicillin?…disastrous for other animals but totally effective for man. I know this is only 2 examples but there are, no doubt, countless more examples to help prove my point. Just PLEASE stop testing on innocent animals and look to other resources so that everybody wins. Thank you.

    What is the point of animal testing?
    People say that animals aren’t smart and that there are too many of them.
    Well over in Asia, the population is huge! Why don’t we just test on them?!
    I mean, there are too many, right?
    And what about babies? They’re not smart and they can’t do anything for themselves, why don’t we just test on them?!
    Animal testing is cruel and pointless, it should stop immediatly!
    Btw, i have nothing against Asians or babies. Lol.

    No animal deserves to live life in a cage,being stabbed by needles,and being cut and tested on.
    It’s wrong,and inhumane.
    It should stop.
    I really hope someday we’ll have a animal cruelty-free world.
    It’s a long shot,but with enough of us out there,it can happen,we just can’t ever give up.

    I’m all for the ethical treatment of animals, but when it comes to finding a cure for a disease that effects millions of women, I don’t care that the rats are being tested. What if these scientists do find a cure through testing on rats? Good for them, then women, whom I personally value over rats, won’t be dying. (and the rats won’t be “cruelly” tested on anymore)
    I don’t think any of you would be complaining about scientists testing on rats if you all lived in a house/neighborhood that was infested by rats. That’s one of the reasons why I don’t protest tests on rats. Try living with rats in your kitchen for years, and then tell me how you feel when scientists are trying to find a cure for a cancer by testing on rats. I promise your view will be different.

    These people might have pets, as tiffany said, yet they are providing for companies that cut open animals just like the ones they own?

    Check out Dr. Gerson’s therapy. His natural way of body healing (i.e. living a certain way of life to heal the whole organism) has a remarkable track record for the healing of cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases in many patients.
    I first learned about it after watching the Documentary “The Beautiful Truth.” It was an awesome movie. No need for animal testing.

    Amanda i %110 agree with you, why waste even more of taxpayers money for useless, cruel, inhuman experiments that will not benefit humanity? Instead the criminals who just ROT AWAY in prison for their own actions, own choices just like every single human being has then yes put them under testing that will actually BENEFIT the cause

    Let’s perform these tests on PEOPLE. Preferably rapists, murderers…etc. We pay for their food, and shelter with our tax money, Let THEM give back to the world by undergoing tests with results we can count on because hey, they’re human, breast cancer patients are human..ding ding ding. I think thats my grand plan idea for the day. And I’d say it’s pretty damn good.
