AKA Chimp claims that millions will die if chimpanzee research ends (“Chimps’ Days in Labs May Be Dwindling”, November 14th) has no scientific basis. Evidence reveals that chimpanzee research has failed to contribute to human medicine: they were used to test 85 HIV/AIDS vaccines that did not work in humans, and they are a poor model for cancer research and unnecessary for hepatitis C research. Genetic differences affect immune function; tumor formation; HIV infection; cognitive disorders and more.
The U.S. alone continues using chimpanzees in invasive research. Yet only 10–20% of all chimpanzees are in active protocols. The FDA discourages chimpanzee tests, stating if chimpanzees were no longer available it would have “no discernable effect” on approving new drugs. Pharmaceutical companies and private laboratories have ended chimpanzee use.
If it was vital, none of this would be true. For the sake of human health, as well as chimpanzees, it must end.

Washing machines display an EAUwith grades for energy efficiency, washing performance and spin efficiency. Grades run from A to G (best to worst), providing a simple method for judging running costs and performance. For example a "Triple A" (AAA) rated machine indicates lowest energy consumption, best wash and best water extraction (i.e. spin) performance. This has had the desired effect of driving customers toward more efficient washing machines and away from less efficient ones.
One important factor that is missing from the energy labelling scheme is the washing machine's rinsing performance, which can adversely affect allergy sufferers and people who are sensitive to laundry detergents and chemicals. It is advisable to check an independent consumer report on how well a washing machine can rinse before purchasing, as newer washing machines use a lot less water than older ones.
