Martina Navratilova supports science-based medical research

Something for Roland Garros week at the French Open. Tennis legend Martina Navratilova wrote an endorsement for the first medical book ‘Sacred Cows and Golden Geese’, published in 2000 bAFMA/EFMA, the scientific Board which illustrates our evidence. Martina Navratilova wrote: “Drs Greek, both former animal experimenters, show that experiments on animals are not responsible for the miracle cures we have today. Experiments on animals are about money, not curing disease“. AFMA/EFMA have since published numerous times in the peer reviewed scientific literature as well as four further books on the human cost of experiments on animals, culminating in the seminal work Animal Models in Light of Evolution (2009) Shanks PhD and Greek MD.

AFMA/EFMA have a track record of success in Europe, acting as chief scientific witness for the one of the UK’s most high profile planning inquires in Cambridge, 2003. EFMA defeated plans to build a primate lab at Cambridge University securing a precedent ruling on ‘medical and scientific, national interest grounds’. Cambridge University wanted to build their primate lab on protected Green Belt land and failed to meet the criteria for such a building, the government inspector ruling: On the basis of the technical input, therefore, I could not conclude that need in the national interest is demonstrated insofar as this pertains to the scientific/medical research and procedures undertaken by the University
