USA prevent people from seeing this.

I'd be very intersted if you had references.

Generally, you are quite right, but that "simple animal" might have to be at
least a mouse, or maybe a small monkey, to make our case strong enough to be
heard in any court. I wonder if anybody tried to perfuse a mouse with
antifreeze glycoproteins - it should be possible to produce enough of these
substances for experiments with small animals.
