Keyanah (drizzleherb-peacelover) | 7 comments Before you stock up on candy this Halloween, you
should know that candymaker Mars funds deadly
animal experiments even though not one of the
tests is required by law, there are more reliable
human studies and Hershey’s, the company’s top
competitor, has banned all tests on animals.

Mars has funded cruel experiments in which mice
were fed a candy ingredient and forced to swim
in a pool of diluted paint. The mice had to find a
hidden platform to avoid drowning, only to be
killed and dissected later.

In another experiment funded by Mars, experimenters fed rats cocoa and
then collected their blood by injecting a needle
directly into their hearts—a procedure that can
lead to internal bleeding and other deadly

Mars also supported an experiment
in which baby mice were crammed into small
Plexiglas chambers and submerged for nearly five
hours in chilled water just to see if a chocolate
ingredient affected their breathing rate.

Please don’t buy any of these Mars products
until the company drops its deadly animal tests:
• M&M’S

I believe in this to much to let it be unknown. I have stopped eating those candies and I will not eat them until they do something about it. We CAN make a change and i think we should start now.

to get this known...start a conversation in all of ur goodreads groups stating this. join other groups to get this known. Do whatever u can to stop this awful killing! Make a change.

Catamorandi (wwwgoodreadscomprofilerandi) You can count me in. I love some of those candies, but I refuse to eat anything that treats animals so horribly. I will write a letter soon to Mars Candy Company.

Gunjari (irajnug) are you SERIOUS MAYA?! i didn't catch that bit! isn't ucd supposed to be famous for its VETRINARY school?! eh?! eh?!
actually i shouldn't talk, because my dad does experiments on mice too, and he's from ucd. but they're not for CANDY they're for finding a cure for skin deseases and stuff. plus they treat the mice as humanely as possible! (even though i think that some animal rights activists are still mad at him anyways)

message 17: by Maya (new)

Maya (mswwsmmsw) hehe really, your dad does things on mice?? ya never know, maybe he could be an undercover agent for mars candy....
hehe, I'm going to sign you guys up for PETA so you can get little stickers in the mail that say, "Cut class, not frogs!" ;)
...yeah I guess in sivad they let cows poop all over the place, but kill helpless mice...

message 18: by Gunjari (new)

Gunjari (irajnug) "cut class, not frogs?" that hilarious!
my dad does things on mice for the greater good! but when you get psoriasis when you get old, don't blame my dad for trying to help you! (lol)

message 19: by Maya (new)

Maya (mswwsmmsw) uh.. sure... psoriasis....
Yeah, someone signed up the Mugglecast P.O. box for PETA so they got all those stickers... and some with pigs too... but I forgot what they said.. ;)

message 20: by Gunjari (new)

Gunjari (irajnug) what did mugglecast do so that some one signed them up for PETA?
plus, psoriasis is serious! :P

message 21: by Maya (new)

Maya (mswwsmmsw) I have no idea... why Mugglecast got signed up for PETA or what psoriasis is....

message 22: by Gunjari (new)

Gunjari (irajnug) it's a skin desease.

message 23: by Maya (new)

Maya (mswwsmmsw) *in high, obnoxious voice* it's a skin disease! And I don't even know how to spell disease! HAHA! I'm Gunjari, and I'm contradicting myself by saying something smart and then spelling a second-grade level word wrong! HAHA!

message 24: by Gunjari (new)

Gunjari (irajnug) it IS a skin disease! bejeebus!
