Emily TrunnellOur second guest is PETA neuroscientist, Dr. Emily Trunnell. She is with us today to discuss Sepsis experiments on animals. Instead of using modern research methods to find a cure, billions of taxpayer dollars have been spent and more are set to be spent on sepsis experiments on animals, while the more than 150 medicines that have effectively treated sepsis in other species have then failed in humans. Our government has known why since 2013 when researchers found that sepsis in mice is an entirely different condition from sepsis in humans, yet no one has stopped the research gravy train that allows money to be wasted on these “go nowhere” experiments that harm and kill millions of animals to no human benefit. She will also discuss state-of-the-art, human-relevant research methods that are available and urgently need to be used.
