This was an extremely interesting interview!  I'm looking forward to reading Dr. Knight's book when it comes out in paperback.  Animal experimentation is, in my opinion, the hardest form of animal use to argue against.  It's great that Dr. Knight has collected information to better understand this difficult topic. 

Thanks very much indeed Matt!
