RE: Greedy Biotch Lynda Resnick (POM)
- Word's getting out, Lynda, about what you do to animals in order to make bogus claims about your pomegranate juice! The Resnicks have a civil suit against five local Los Angeles activists for $1,000 each to pay them back for the cost of the injunction they persuaded the court to enact against us! (That's OK, Lynda - I don't mind standing 100 feet away. My bullhorn reaches across that distance to get the message out about what you do to rabbits and baby mice.) And, by the way, Lynda is worth $900 million - but the greedy biotch wants to penetrate (I use the term deliberately) some new markets convincing men suffering from erectile dysfunction that drinking fruit juice is a cure. What's the matter, Lynda? $900 million isn't enough?First Alternative Cooperative Takes Action After Learning From PETA
That POM Wonderful Is POM Horrible for Rabbits and Mice
For Immediate Release:
January 2, 2007
Shalin Gala 757-622-7382
Corvallis, Ore. Corvallis-based First Alternative Cooperative is
putting the squeeze on juicemaker POM Wonderful and has pulled POM
products from its shelves. The store will not resume selling the drink
until POM stops supporting painful and deadly tests on rabbits and
mice. First Alternative Cooperative is joined by long-time PETA pal
Pamela Anderson, who posted a graphic PETA video about animal
experimentation on her hugely popular Web site PamelaAnderson.com and
is urging her legions of fans to boycott POM. First Alternative
Cooperative is the latest health-food store to join PETAs national
"POM Horrible" campaign.
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 babies were then
killed so that experimenters could dissect their brains. In another
experiment, rabbits arteries were severed in order to cause impotence;
the rabbits were then fed POM juice to study erectile dysfunction.
More than 20 of POMs competitorsincluding pomegranate-juice makers
Naked Juice, Lakewood, Old Orchard, and Frutzzodo not and will not
conduct or fund animal experiments. In addition, Welchs and Ocean
Spray recently publicly announced their decisions to stop funding all
experiments on animals following negotiations with PETA. Juice giant
Welchs states on its Web site, "With the broad range of research
alternatives available today, we at Welchs have determined that we can
remain committed to scientific research without the further funding
of animal research."
"POMs customers will be horrified to find out about these deadly
experiments, and since none of POMs pomegranate-juice competitors is
tormenting animals in laboratories, its going to be easy to convince
people to switch brands," says PETA Vice President Bruce Friedrich. "We
commend First Alternative Cooperative for dumping POM and letting the
company know that no health drink is worth suffering and dying for."
