Centro Informazioni Vivisezionistiche Internazionali Scientifiche

The Hans Ruesch Foundation for a Medicine Without Vivisection



This web site is meant to provide information and documentation promoting a realistic view of vivisection (or animal experimentation). “Vivisection” is any invasive experiment on living animals and humans, which need not involve “cutting”.  

Vivisection is the Trojan Horse by which ineffective and dangerous drugs are marketed, and toxic agents are introduced in the environment, in the food,  and our lives, with official certifications of efficacy and safety which, in fact, have no scientific value. 

Those who fight vivisection do not reject medicine. On the contrary, they want a reliable and evidence-based medicine.  

They are not siding with animals against humans. On the contrary, they are fighting to save suffering to both animals and humans.  

They are not involved in a merely theoretical issue. On the contrary, theirs is a political struggle, because huge profits are made by exploiting this pseudo-scientific methodology, and the groups thriving on it (first and foremost the petro-chemo-pharmaceutical corporations) have their representatives at the highest levels of governments, parties, universities – and animalist leagues, too.

I sent you the article by Prof. Dott. Marco Mamone Capria which appeared in Biologi Italiani, with a circulation of [40.000] copies. There, once again, animal experiments have been documented as a pseudo-scientific fraud and an egregious crime against humans and animals. [More]

Complaint on the European Commission to the European Ombudsman concerning Stop Vivisection [October 12, 2016]

A few days ago, on October 9, 2016, I sent a complaint on the European Commission to the European Ombudsman concerning the European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) Stop Vivisection. I had to register and to fill a form (in Italian) provided for such complaints (https://secure.ombudsman.europa.eu/secured/loginform.faces), and I attached a letter. [More or see the pdf file]
