65. what's wrong with this picture?
He injected FERRETS with the virus. Ferrets aren't human, and have different physiologies and reactions to pathogens. Using nonhuman animals to test human vaccines and drugs is just plain lousy science. What are we doing still using these medieval methods in so-called scientific research? And figuring out that a vaccine is contaminated doesn't require the deaths of any animals, just a microscope and a sample of the serum.
