Most people know experimenting on animals is cruel. Just imagine being trapped in a cage, waiting for the next painful experiment! What many people do NOT realize is that these experiments are irrelevant to humans. Shocking, right?!
The following quotes from esteemed scientists, government officials, and doctors explain exactly why animal testing is a waste of time:
Some of the world’s most forward-thinking scientists have moved on to develop and use methods for studying diseases that replace animals and are actually relevant to human health! These modern methods include sophisticated tests using human cells and tissues, advanced computer-modeling techniques, and studies with human volunteers.
Tired of seeing animals locked up in labs? A National Institutes of Health (NIH) laboratory breeds dozens of monkeys every year to be prone to mental illness. These experiments don’t help humans. The experimenters have even admitted that the work is not applicable to the treatment of human psychological trauma and brain disorders.
