Good News: New vaccine could prevent ravages of Alzheimer's disease
According to this article, a promising new vaccine is perhaps just around the corner that prevents the worst symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. They hope to have it available to patients in about six years. This vaccine, like most treatments, was first tested on animals, in this case mice, before it went to human clinical trials. Yet, despite seemingly infinite examples to the contrary, we are told ad nauseum by ARAs that animal testing is completely unnecessary. We are told by ARAs that animal testing has contributed very little to the advancement of medicine. We are told it is nothing more than torture of animals by evil, sadistic scientists greedy for money. History ( in conjunction with common sense ) , of course tells us otherwise and exposes their lies for what they are.
