Drug Test Gone Wrong in UK

You've probably already read or heard about it.

The sad thing about all this is that this is an entirely new drug with no history so the doctors are just as blind as anyone off the street. With 4 stable and 2 critical it appears that this is one drug that probably will end up in medical textbooks. The two in critical condition may die any moment.

Interesting how a drug that has had no effects on cell cultures and animals have such a deliterious effect on a human. If anything, this tells me even more that as we push further into the unknown regions of medical science and utilize drugs and chemicals that have never existed in nature that there needs to be animal and human testing.

I am very sad for those men and their families. I don't have the courage to do what they do. Unfortunately, the fact is that society has a need for animal testing even if it does hurt animals. Society will always choose human life over animal life. Some would even say that animals choose their lives over other animals. Of course, some still call the human species a hairless ape.
