More Animal Testing, Despite Federal Laws

Congress rewrote chemical safety laws a couple of years ago, with instructions to the Environmental Protection Agency to work to reduce testing of chemicals on animals. 

Instead, reports indicate animal testing is now more common, with many more animals being exposed to potentially harmful chemicals. 

Animal rights groups have expressed concern, and so has the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.  Kristie Sullivan of PCRM will join us.  We also have confirmation from the EPA's Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention.
