Dans le passé, Welch Food, Inc. avait pratiqué des expériences sur des animaux pour étudier les bénéfices pour la santé du jus de raisins. L'été passé, Welch Food, Inc. s'est engagé à ne plus recourir à l'expérimentation animale(1). Il n'y a aucun doute que ce changement de politique s'explique en grande partie grâce aux défenseurs des animaux agissant et menaçant de boycoter Welch Food, Inc. jusqu'à ce que l'entreprise ait cessé de tester son jus de raisins sur des animaux.

Maintenant il semble qu' une autre compagnie, POM Wonderful (2), un distributeur du jus de grenade dont le chiffre d'affaires annuel est de 50 millions de dollars, s'engage également dans l'expérimentation animale.

POM Wonderful or Dreadful? Juice Maker Conducts Animal Tests

In the past, Welch Food, Inc. had conducted research on animals to investigate the health benefits of drinking grape juice. This past summer, Welch Food, Inc. pledged to end its animal research. There’s no doubt that this change in policy occurred due in large part to animal advocates taking action and pledging to boycott Welch’s until it stopped testing its grape juice on animals.

Now it seems that another company, POM Wonderful, a global distributor of pomegranate juice that is raking in annual sales of over $50 million, is also engaging in animal research. According to The Los Angeles Business Journal, owners of POM Wonderful, Lynda and Steve Resnick, funded $15 million in research investigating the health benefits of pomegranate juice, some of which involved animal testing.

Reportedly, researchers lowered oxygen levels in newborn mice, causing brain injuries, and forced "their mothers to drink water mixed with pomegranate concentrate." Other studies investigated the effects of pomegranate juice on the hardening of the arteries in mice and erectile dysfunction in rabbits. POM President Matthew Tupper has confirmed this information, stating that POM Wonderful has supported "a limited amount of animal testing."

Pomegranates have been used medicinally for centuries, and their therapeutic properties have become widely discussed in recent years. It is believed that the fruit, with roots dating back to Biblical times, possesses extremely high levels of antioxidants, substances known to promote good health. Studying the beneficial effects of pomegranates could lead to new, exciting discoveries that might benefit thousands of people. But using animals to test these potential health benefits could produce unreliable data.

This is clearly an area of research where clinical and epidemiological studies could flourish, generating applicable information because humans are used as the test subjects. For example, The New York Times reported in July that a study of 50 males who suffered from prostate cancer found that all 50 showed marked improvement after drinking one glass of pomegranate juice a day. Although these results are preliminary, the study has produced information that is directly applicable to human conditions, unlike the animal research studies that have been supported by POM Wonderful.

What you can do!

Please contact the President of POM Wonderful and ask him to implement a new compassionate policy that ends the use of animal research to investigate the health benefits of drinking pomegranate juice. Tell him that research using human subjects is much more humane, ethical, and reliable.
