POM Juice Continues Ridiculous Animal Testing: Calls Continue to Executives to Give a Written Explanation on the Unnecessary Animal Testing

Sure it’s Pamela Anderson (at least she’s doing something good with her fame), but the fact remains – why in the world would POM juice test on animals? It makes no sense. Here are the faces:


“A PETA spokesperson explained, "We discovered that in one experiment that POM funded, mother mice were fed POM juice and their week-old babies were locked in a chamber with almost no oxygen for 45 minutes, causing severe brain damage."

The spokesperson added that the experiments were so severe that animals are killed in the process.

They continued, "They were then killed so that experimenters could dissect their brains. In another experiment, rabbits' arteries were severed to make them impotent. The rabbits were then fed POM juice to study erectile dysfunction."

Los Angeles, CA (AHN) - She may be in the midst of some personal woes as she divorces Kid Rock but it doesn't stop Pamela Anderson from standing up for what she believes in.

The "Baywatch" star has announced that she will boycott POM juice because of its stance on animal testing.

The animal rights activist, who is working closely with PETA, is urging the public to follow her lead via graphic videos and messages posted on her official website.

Anderson is calling for POM juice executives to give a written explanation on their animal testing.

A PETA spokesperson explained, "We discovered that in one experiment that POM funded, mother mice were fed POM juice and their week-old babies were locked in a chamber with almost no oxygen for 45 minutes, causing severe brain damage."

The spokesperson added that the experiments were so severe that animals are killed in the process.

They continued, "They were then killed so that experimenters could dissect their brains. In another experiment, rabbits' arteries were severed to make them impotent. The rabbits were then fed POM juice to study erectile dysfunction."

Outraged by the tests, Anderson is calling for shoppers to switch their drinks to a friendlier "Naked" brand of juice.

She urged, "Considering the cruel experiments on animals that POM is funding, I'm calling on everyone to get Naked instead."

People can also visit POMHorrible.com to get involved with the campaign. It's as easy as sending an e-mail to the company expressing disgust at their funding of ridiculous and cruel experiments on animals, or stopping by your local health food store and asking that they discontinue ordering POM until the company stops these tests.
