All of Daniel‘s animal death and destruction posts seem to be influencing me. It turns out that MARS, the company responsible for making M&Ms, Snickers, and other candies you can plant a razor blade into while high on meth the night before Halloween, has been testing on animals. Cute little animals. The ones that star in Disney animated features.
Mars has funded cruel experiments in which mice were fed a candy ingredient and forced to swim in a pool of paint. The mice had to find a platform to try to avoid drowning, only to be later killed and dissected. In another gruesome experiment supported by Mars, rats were fed cocoa and then sedated with carbon dioxide so that blood could be collected through a needle that punctured their hearts.
Wow. I never want to eat Mars products again.
