EXPOSÉ: NIH ships tax dollars overseas for “junkie monkey” experiments, more

As White Coat Waste Project has exposed time and again, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has more tax money than it knows what to do with, leading to $15-billion-plus of wasteful and nontransparent spending on animal testing each year. Now, we’ve discovered the NIH is so #AddictedToSpending that it’s shipping our tax dollars to Great Britain to get animals in labs hooked on drugs and alcohol.

As first reported by the UK’s The Independent, a new WCW investigation of federal spending found that the NIH sent over $17 million tax dollars to British laboratories to create animal addicts, including:

  • $11.6 million addicting monkeys and other animals to cocaine, morphine and heroin (University of Bath, others)
  • $4.9M forcing pregnant mice to consume alcohol to cause birth defects (Oxford University)
  • $708,000 addicting zebrafish to nicotine (Queen Mary University of London)

The last example has already caught the attention of waste warrior Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who criticized the project and featured the ridiculous study in the 2019 Festivus edition of his Waste Report.


Here in the U.S., WCW is trying to launch an ad campaign near NIH headquarters to let taxpayers know they’re being forced to pay for these foreign experiments, but the government is unlawfully censoring us.

 

Tell Congress to stop wasting your money on these outdated and pointless experiments!

The so called scientist that torment these animals need to have this done to them. This is nothing but animal cruelty.

End this cruel inhumane waste immediately

Do these scientists not know that alcohol, cocaine, heroin, nicotine and morphine are bad for humans, especially pregnant ones??? Maybe $17 million of tax payer dollars could be kept in the U.S. and study things that do not include animal abuse.

Just when you thought the situation was under control…

Dear people please do not ever think it’s OK to harm someone else some other living creature for any reason except to protect them from attacking you hurting anybody is absolutely wrong for entertainment for ornamentation or for food because I’ve been a vegetarian for 30 years now and I got no problem finding plenty of food to eat without harming anybody do the right thing and be decent considerate kind and respectful to every living thing

Stop these experiments!

Humans need to learn to respect luv and care for animals to not do so is inhumane and monstrous! Torture is not culture! “The greatness of a nation is judged by the way it’s animals are treated”!

Stop wasting money and torturing helpless animals.

Why is this happening? What are they thinking. What are they hoping for?

STOP these horrific animal cruelty experiments! These inhumane tests are causing unnecessary pain and in some cases death to these living, breathing beings that were created by God! I know God would not condone your harming them. End it now before any more innocent animals suffer this unspeakable cruelty!!!!!

Stop sending my tax dollars to support animal testing!

So terrible for these poor animals. We need to stop this NOW!

Absolute waste of our money and as stated
animal cruelty. Must stop.

Absurd …… stop these now !! Animals value their lives as well …. and we as people sure aren’t always worth saving …. look what We have done to the environment and many species of animals ….

What type of bastard human beings are these people, they obviously have no morals, compassion or any decency of any kind, I hope their karma strikes heavily. This type of horror needs to be stopped

you think that is what there doing with that money paying students who already payed to learn to be told to do these experiments, Slaps for head, some one is paying off some one or some group.computer simulations can do about the same thing. and for a lot less money.
