Vivisection According to Dr. Robert Mendelsohn
Dr Robert Mendelsohn received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Chicago in 1951. For 12 years he was an instructor at Northwest University Medical College, and an additional 12 years served as Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Community Health and Preventive Medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine.
He was also President of the National Health Federation, former National Director of Project Head Starts Medical Consultation Service, and Chairman of the Medical Licensing Committee of the State of Illinois.
He appeared on over 500 television and radio talk shows, and is the author of:
* Confessions of a Medical Heretic
* Male Practice: How Doctors Manipulate Women
* How To Raise a Healthy Child In Spite of Your Doctor.
He also wrote the prefix to "Slaughter of the innocent" an anti vivisection book that formed a new AV movement ~ the scientific anti vivisectionist movement
"Tests on animals have led to around 100 drugs being thought potentially useful for stroke; not one has proved effective in humans. You don't need to be a balaclava-wearing animal rights activist to question the value of animal studies in this area of medical research."
