Northern Animal Rights Believes the fight against vivisection is a key fight in  the animal rights movement

We are very active within campaigns like Close Newcastle Animal Labs and other anti vivisection campaigns to promote a alternative to animal testing and show that vivisection is a danger to all

Some facts into why vivisection is dangerous

Less than 2% of human illnesses (1.16%) are ever seen in animals.  Over 98% never affect animals.

According to the former scientific executive of Huntingdon Life Sciences, animal tests and human results agree “5%-25% of the time.”

92% of drugs passed by animal tests immediately fail when first tried on humans because they’re useless, dangerous or both.

Rats are 37% effective in identifying what causes cancer to humans – less use than guessing.  The experimenters said: “we would have been better off to have tossed a coin.”

Vioxx was shown to protect the heart of mice, dogs, monkeys and other lab animals.  It was linked to heart attacks and strokes in up to 139,000 humans
