Each year in the U.S., around 25 million animals are used in biomedical research, cosmetic and product testing, and education.

They are subjected to experiments so horrific, it’s almost too much to bear. That’s why it’s time to take our heads out of the sand, and bring this issue out into the open.

This episode will address questions such as: What is vivisection? Is it really necessary? Are there alternatives? What can each person do to help end this practice?

To help answer these questions, I’m so pleased to welcome Dr. Theodora Capaldo, as my guest.

Dr Capaldo is a Massachusetts licensed psychologist, and is President and Executive Director of the New England Anti-Vivisection Society (NEAVS).

She is also Trustee of American Fund for Alternatives to Animal Research.
