More Criticism of Animal Research

More criticism of the quality of animal research. Here is the Editor of "New Scientist" who suppports animal research, BUT he points out the terrible quality of the research and reliability of the results.

It really hurts the scientific community's arguments that animal research saves lives. How can it when you can't rely on it?

Sounds like some researchers are just making a ton of money off this thing. It's more fuel for opponents.
How come so much animal research is second-rate? The reason so much poor quality research has endured for so long is down to politics.

The sad truth is that in the understandable scramble to present a unified front on animal research, the scientific establishment has been reluctant to be critical of its own troops in the face of vicious opposition.
