AFRS

 Alliance For Responsible Science

London Roma Paris

In  combating the chemical warfare claiming hundreds of thousands  of victims a year in the EU, AFRS (Alliance for Responsible Science) challenges the validity of animal-based toxicology tests and calls for reliable toxic risk assessment.

European Social Forum, Malet  St., Bloomsbury, London

 Saturday 16th of October,  11.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.

Room BIRKBECK 406

Europeans are surrounded by over 100.000  chemicals, 98% of which have never been tested for their effects  on our health and the environment.

Recent health statistics prove that we are exposed to a full-blown  chemical war which claims hundred of thousands of victims yearly  in the EU.

The European Commission (EC) is right in deciding that these products must be assessed.

However, AFRS challenges the EC's projected use of traditional  toxicology methods

in such assessments, since these would rely on animal-based tests, which have been conclusively proved to be invalid for human medical  research, and asks for the adoption of RELIABLE scientific toxic risk assessments, VALID  for humans.
