(NaturalNews) Procter & Gamble (P&G), the corporate conglomerate which recently bought out organic supplement and vitamin company New Chapter (http://www.naturalnews.com), has a long and extensive history of engaging in cruel animal testing on its portfolio of products. And according to at least two animal activist sites, P&G has essentially been lying for years about making efforts to switch to cruelty-free testing alternatives.

According to the website www.PandGKills.com, which is owned and operated by the group In Defense of Animals, P&G continues to torture rabbits, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, and other creatures by conducting experiments on them that include poisoning them with toxins, burning their eyes with chemicals, and eventually killing them. And the U.K. website Uncaged says that on top of these and many other extreme testing protocols, P&G does not even provide basic care for these animals while they are still alive.

"Laboratory workers place the animals in restraining devices so they cannot struggle while the workers apply the chemicals, which burn into the animals' eyes and skin," says P&GKills.com. "P&G 'scientists' do not sedate the animals or give them painkillers. Animals sometimes break their necks or backs attempting to escape the pain. Those that survive are used in yet additional painful tests ... until they are finally killed."

According to Uncaged P&G's animal torture protocols have also included forcing hamsters to inhale large amounts of "nano-sized" particles; forcing mice to consume synthetic musk and other fragrances; and even forcing dogs to eat large amounts of a cleaning chemical by pumping it directly into their stomachs.

"It's hard to think of anything more vicious than poisoning and killing animals for the sake of tinkering with cosmetics and washing power formulas," writes Uncaged. "P&G are responsible for relentless cruelty at its most calculating."

There is absolutely no reason, of course, for P&G to continue abusing, torturing, and killing animals as part of its product testing protocols. And yet the company continues to do it, perhaps simply because it is convenient and represents the way in which the company has always tested its products.

Even so, there are other ways to test products that do not involve torturing animals, many of which are far less expensive in the long run. And if P&G really wanted to end animal testing cruelty, it could simply switch to chemical-free, natural products instead of the petroleum derivative-laced synthetic products it currently sells.

Some major P&G-owned brands include Cover Girl, Crest, Old Spice, Scope, Downy, Pampers, Duracell, Tide, and now New Chapter. You can find a list of all P&G brands by visiting:
