Bush Administration Does Something That Doesn't Hurt or Kill More Animals

The NIH and EPA have agreed to find alternate to animals in the testing for toxicity. Wow. I wonder if Halburton gets a contract out of this.

Rodents and primates around the world can breathe a little easier. Ditto animal rights activists who have long opposed testing drugs and conducting other experiments on animals. Top officials from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Thursday announced a five-year deal promising to share technology, information and other resources that will improve the toxicity testing of chemical compounds used in food, medicine and other products using robots rather than lab animals.

Shocking. Does Dick Cheney know about this? Where's the fun in torturing robots?
