This question was posed to me recently by a Guru magazine reader as part of Ask-a-Guru.
It was originally stated like this: “Is there a scientific reason for boycotting ALL beaver skin products?”
The question was interesting to me because it’s not asking for an opinion – it’s not asking whether I not I think it’s “right” or “good” to use beaver fur. It simply asked whether there was a scientific basis for boycotting it all.
I therefore endeavored to answer this question with no bias, and only facts. I know using fur products can be an emotionally charged topic for some! So, what did I find out? Check out my answer on Guru’s website, here.
Also, you can check out Guru’s twitter feed to see the original question.
