Prestigious vaccine research lab caught torturing monkeys in the name of “science”
(NaturalNews) A respected scientific lab in Texas has come under federal investigation following the issuance by auditors of a preliminary report claiming it did not do enough to prevent suffering of monkeys used in research after they were infected with a deadly virus for a disease study.
Auditors with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases found that the Galveston National Laboratory made several procedural mistakes during the study. The lab is one of the country’s top research facilities seeking vaccine treatments for a number of the most lethal diseases. The New York Times reported that the lab and inspectors are discussing the findings before a final decision on any actions is reached.
