Candy Maker Mars: How Low Can You Sink?

Madam, Gentlemen,

It came to our knowledge that you, candy makers MARS Inc (= MARS, M&M, SNICKERS, TWIX, DOVE, THREE MUSKETEERS, STARBUST, SKITTLES?.) are funding insane, deadly animal tests -- even though more reliable human studies exist and even though not one of these tests is required by Law!!!!

This, dear MARS people, is what normal, respectable persons call : criminal behavior.

Well, be assured that we will warn our children, our grandchildren, our relatives, our friends and everybody on earth about your blood smeared ''candies'' and all your other products : to be avoided as much as possible.
We swear to God that we'll spread the word . We'll make a nice publicity for MARS etc. : Word-of-mouth marketing, you know.


Mars recently funded a deadly experiment on rats to determine the effects of chocolate ingredients on their blood vessels. Experimenters force-fed the rats by shoving plastic tubes down their throats and then cut open the rats' legs to expose an artery, which was clamped shut to block blood flow. After the experiment, the animals were killed. Mars has also funded cruel experiments in which mice were fed a candy ingredient and forced to swim in a pool of a water mixed with white paint. The mice had to find a hidden platform to avoid drowning, only to be killed and dissected later on. In yet another experiment supported by Mars, rats were fed cocoa and anesthetized with carbon dioxide so that their blood could be collected by injecting a needle directly into their hearts, which can lead to internal bleeding and other deadly complications.
