Top Five Reasons to Stop Animal Testing

Poisoning, shocking, burning, and killing animals is all in a day’s work for vivisectors. If these atrocious acts were committed outside laboratories, they would be felonies. But animals suffer and die every day in laboratories with little or no protection from cruelty. Here are the top five reasons why it needs to stop:

  1. It’s unethical to sentence 100 million thinking, feeling animals to life in a laboratory cage and intentionally cause them pain, loneliness, and fear.
  2. It’s bad science. The Food and Drug Administration reports that 92 out of every 100 drugs that pass animal tests fail in humans.
  3. It’s wasteful. Animal experiments prolong the suffering of people waiting for effective cures by misleading experimenters and squandering precious money, time, and resources that could have been spent on human-relevant research.
  4. It’s archaic. Forward-thinking scientists have developed humane, modern, and effective non-animal research methods, including human-based microdosing, in vitro technology, human-patient simulators, and sophisticated computer modeling, that are cheaper, faster, and more accurate than animal tests.
  5. The world doesn’t need another eyeliner, hand soap, food ingredient, drug for erectile dysfunction, or pesticide so badly that it should come at the expense of animals’ lives.

    Thank you for sharing this page we us, we need to let the world what the owners of those labs are doing just for money…Do they do the same to human beings…??? Maybe…and it must stop…

    Is time to change…no more animal cruelty, no more water or north/south poles poisoning with Round Up from Mantesanto Labs…no more air contamination with dirty cars oil tech(only because money is what matters ???????).
    We the regular citizens (not guilty of this) are the 99% of the world’s population. The other 1% are owners of industries, banks and oil Co., labs, Food, pesticides and they control everything).
    How they have come so far and dominate the rest of the world if we are the majority of the population…?????
    We the 99% have been doing something wrong to be on this situation from many years ago…
    I think if we search for the reason why that’s happening, we are going to start a change first on us ? …
    Our worst enemy is ignorance of everything they do and believe everything that TV and says to manipulate our lives…
    I don’t watch TV from 2 years ago and my life has change positively because I have time to think in what they don’t want me to be thinking…
