"Here is a quote from Peta..."
And, just as soon as there's some evidence from PETA we can have a scientific debate.

I suppose there are some answers to come from veterinarians.

Here is a quote from Peta:
Nestlé, maker of the Nestea brand of iced tea, from force-feeding mice tea ingredients before killing them.
Tea leaves, of course, would fall under "GRAS", "Generally Regarded as Safe".
But, some of the instant beverages are quite removed from natural.  If I actually drank the stuff, I would be happy to hear that it didn't cause cancer or birth defects.

Many lab tests require histology.  But, perhaps some such as LD50 trials might not require histology.

Are PETA members volunteering to allow ex-lab mice to be liberated in their homes?
