The tobacco industry is at it again. It was recently revealed that tobacco companies are using animals to conduct harmful nicotine experiments. Tobacco testing laboratories use live animals to test the effects of nicotine and tobacco. We all know how destructive these substances are to humans' health, yet these irresponsible tobacco giants are continuing to put animals in danger in favor of nothing more than sheer profit.

These experiments are completely inhumane and only serve to benefit the notorious tobacco industry. We should not be allowing selfish tobacco conglomerates to harm poor, innocent animals any longer. Write to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack asking him to put a stop to these companies' barbarous practices once and for all.

Dear Secretary Vilsack,

As a concerned animal advocate, I am writing to inform you of the abhorrent practices taking place within big tobacco companies of late. The tobacco industry has been conducting tobacco and nicotine experiments on innocent live animals. They are attempting to test the effects of nicotine.

Don't we already know the effects of nicotine on the human body? Why is it necessary to test its effects on animals? It's common knowledge that nicotine and tobacco cause significant health problems such as cancer, emphysema, and other severe conditions. With this knowledge in mind, it's simply absurd to harm live animals with nicotine testing. It makes no sense at all.

We must fight for the rights of creatures that cannot represent themselves. Nicotine testing on animals serves absolutely no purpose. Please use your power as Secretary of Agriculture to put an end to these cruel experiments.

Thank you for considering my comments.
