Professor Lorna Harries and researcher Nicola Jeffery believe that the best way to find treatments for human diabetes is to use kindly donated human cells, instead of experimenting on animals:

Sadly, hundreds of thousands of animals are experimented on every year to find treatments for diabetes.

Many of the animals used in traditional diabetes research are mice and rats who have either been genetically manipulated or injected with a drug to kill their insulin-producing cells.

These animals are forced to suffer with the symptoms and painful complications of diabetes, such as excessive hunger and thirst, fatigue, and damage to their hearts, kidneys, eyes and nerves.

Some animals are then cruelly injected with chemicals to see how they respond, while others are used as live growing incubators to produce specific diabetes-related cells for research.

Animals suffer all of this before being suffocated to death using carbon dioxide poisoning, so that their tissues can be extracted for further research.

Please support our humane medical research, bringing hope to humans without harming animals by making a donation now. We simply can’t do it without you.
