Fat Monkeys

Quick last violation of "Saturday only" blogging rule.  For people who think or teach or write about animal rights, this story about obesity research using monkeys and baboons makes perfect fodder for discussion.  Don't miss it!

ugh...I suppose it's because I'm a speciest but I really hate it when scientists use primates for research. I'm uncomforatable with animal research in general, which isn't to say that I'm 100% against it, however in the case of primates I am. I think it's pretty twisted to do all this research on a species because they are so similiar to us but how convient that they are not similiar enough to us to warrant some basic rights. Makes me sad. I enjoy thisblogby the way, I found it through the "let them eat meat" blog.
