Ray Greek, M.D.
Founder, Americans for Medical Advancement
Dr. Ray Greek is a physician who is board certified in anesthesiology and sub-specialty certified in Pain Management. He was an instructor at two of the United States’ most prestigious medical schools and has published in the medical literature. He has performed experiments on animals and research with humans. Along with his wife, who is a veterinarian, he has written three books on the scientific fallacy of attempting to extrapolate the results of animal experiments to humans.
Sacred Cows & Golden Geese was their first and the foreword was written by Jane Goodall.
Speices Science: How Genetics and Evolution Reveal Why Medical Research on Animals Harms Humans addressed the issue in a little more scientific depth.
What Will We Do If We Don't Experiment On Animals?
Medical Research for the Twenty-first Century examined the research modalities available instead of animals.
He has shown not only that animal experiments are unnecessary, but that they have resulted in both direct and indirect harm to humans. Dr. Greek effectively argues that the money currently going to fund animal experiments should be designated for other historically more productive and scientific means of health research. He is president of
Americans for Medical Advancement, a 501c3 dedicated to educating the public about the hazards of extrapolating the results of experiments on animals to humans.
Dr. Greek states:
For too long, we have allowed the vital resources that support biomedical research to be squandered by the vested interest groups. People are dying everyday from cancer, AIDS, heart disease, adverse drug reactions, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, birth defects and many more. It is time we the people take control of our how our taxes are spent in the field of medical research.
