Today, we still have no cures for ALS, arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, most cancers and virtually all major diseases and we’re still 60 years away contrary to what is being promoted. The Canadian government, charities and universities continue to invest millions of tax and donor dollars in biomedical research that has a 95% failure rate. The Medical Illusion explores the issues facing the health system while examining the future of medicine; a transition to human biological innovations. Some of these innovations are available now such as, In-vitro, organ on a chip, 3D human printing and others, however, they are essentially being ignored in favour of the current model. Unless an urgent transition begins, millions of Canadians will suffer and die needlessly in the decades to come.
Need a dose of hope to kick off the new year? Listen to this eye-opening and hopeful interview with Dr. Aysha Akhtar, the CEO and President of the Center for Contemporary Sciences (CCS). In this episode, she explains why we can end unreliable animal testing within our lifetimes…and replace it with something far better for the future of human health.

Webinars offered on animal free anitbody research after: “The JRC’s EU Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM) issued a Recommendation urging end-users and other stakeholders to recognize the scientific validity of non-animal-derived antibodies and to stop using animals for antibody development and production.” – The European Commission’s Science and Knowledge Service
We are seeking committed volunteers, with demonstrated desk research skills, with an understanding of medical research and terminology, strong writing skills, and analytical skills to carry out various research projects.
We are looking for a minimum of two volunteers to help us with the following:
1. Building a new case studies section for our website to help highlight how animals are used in research, testing and teaching in Canada. 2. Compiling a list of case studies of Canadian research utilizing ethical and modern methods without animals. 3. Compiling a list of non-animal-based methods that can be used to train vet students. 4. Other general volunteer work like fact-checking, reference checking and offering scientific advice.
Experience: You will have the ability to read scientific publications and transpose the key points into case studies targeted at a non-scientific audience. Ideally, you will hold a minimum of an undergraduate scientific qualification and/or employment in the medical or research industry.
If you are committed to advancing modern, ethical and effective medical research and replacing the use of animals in research, testing and teaching, volunteering at PNARS will enable you to directly contribute to progress in this area.
Help us fund billboards, ads, events and newsletters – join us and be counted! Help us fund vital educational outreach!
We are a grassroots, community organization that brings the message of innovative, humane, biomedical breakthroughs to the public.
