    Even though Proctor & Gamble is a sponsor of the Olympics, I hope none of the athletes let themselves get polluted into endorsing any of their products. P & G refuses to stop testing their product ingredients in LIVE animals, saying it's the only way to produce safe merchandise. Yet P & G has NOT come out and said that the vast number of cruelty-free products available are UNsafe. What gives, P & G ?
