Anti-vivisection group Buav has launched a savage attack on the EU's top scientific risk committee in a row over testing strategies for potential endocrine-disrupting chemicals. The committee had earlier rejected as "unreliable" Buav proposals aimed at moving to non-animal testing methods (EED 02/12/05). In a statement, the group's chief executive Adolfo Sansolini said he was astonished that the Scher committee had produced "such a faulty, biased and insubstantial opinion". The committee "conveniently excludes key aspects" of Buav's report, he also alleged. See Buav.
