Ep. 71: A Muscular Dystrophy Patient Is Suing Texas A/M For How It Treated Him
Release Date: 06/05/2019
Hear from Johnathon Byrne, a British businessman and animal advocate who has filed a lawsuit against Texas A&M University for how they treated him when he came to protest the canine muscular dystrophy dog lab at the school.
A reprise of our 2018 interview, Byrne tells Emil Guillermo why it was important to make the trip from the UK to Texas A&M to fight the cruel and useless experiments on dogs.
As a muscular dystrophy patient, Byrne feels it's immoral to subject dogs to the disease when any findings from the research have yet to benefit humans in any meaningful way.
Byrne, a 27-year-old university student and business owner, has taken a pro-active approach to his condition, shunning any drugs and switching to a vegan diet, which he says has greatly improved his quality of life.
