After the dust up last week about violent anti-animal testing groups (coast down through the comments on the linked Denialism post to get the short version of my take), two things stuck in my head. One, the Dalai Lama says my karma’s okay as long as I’m following what looks like a version of the Society of Toxicology’s Principles of Animal Use. Two, what would be of practical use to researchers who deal with this problem? Here’s my advice:
1) Have compassion for animals in research.
2) Strive to make your research a benefit for humanity.
3) Get this free karmic pass and put it on your lab door. Download pdf poster here.
4) Smile and feel at peace (really).
Many thanks to my good friend P for putting this together for me!
