Procter & Gamble continues to perform safety tests for its consumer and cosmetic products on rabbits and other laboratory animals when these tests are not required by law and when alternative, non-animal tests exist, charges In Defense of Animals (IDA), which in 1989 called for a boycott of all P&G products. The boycott, underway in countries on six continents, is supported by PETA, the National Anti-Vivisection Society and other animal rights groups.

It’s a Rat’s Life
Colgate, Palmolive, Ajax, Fab, Speed Stick, Mennen, SoftSoap; Colgate-Palmolive Co.

Alas, Colgate is no safer than Crest for the laboratory animal — or the animal-loving consumer — because Colgate-Palmolive Co. also tests its products on live beasties. For that reason PETA and other animal rights groups are boycotting the company — along with scores of others. Alternatives to the toothpaste titans? Everyone we spoke to mentioned one: Tom’s of Maine.

Tea Troubles
It’s a scorcher. You’re parched. Do you reach for a dubiously endorsed Snapple straight from the cooler, or the exotically packaged Arizona Iced Tea?


The Mueller report might not say it, but David Corn will. So amid the swirling headlines and cable chatter, David provides a clear and honest assessment of what we really know about Trump's actions: “Trump Aided and Abetted Russia's Attack. That Was Treachery. Full Stop.

Even though Mueller may be done with his investigation, Mother Jones is not. David and his team in Washington have been digging deep on the Russian connections and other corruption scandals since before the 2016 election, and we're not stopping now.
