Aside from being responsible for animal cruelty HLS
are directly responsible for human misery, suffering and death. Countless products manufactured by HLS
clients have gone on to hospitalize and even kill people.
HLS employees have been exposed violently shaking and punching four-month-old beagle puppies in the face, dissecting conscious monkeys, falsifying scientific data, and violating Good Laboratory Practice laws over 600 times.
HLS tests frivolous products such as tanning lotion, food coloring, perfumes, weed killers, and artificial sweeteners.
An estimated 12,800 animals died in the research of the super-sweet sugar substitute Splenda. HLS used pregnant rabbits, beagle puppies, cats, monkeys, and mice to test the substance, administering up to 1200 times the estimated daily intake. 32 beagles were used- of which four puppies were starved, and after weeks of having the substance pumped into them, they were killed by exsanguination- having their throats slit. http://www.shac.net
