I created this video to try to educate people about the many issues with using animals in experimentation, be it medical or cosmetic, warfare, or household product testing. It is cruel, and it DOES NOT HELP HUMANS. Animas are different from humans physically, and 92% of drugs tested on animals and found to be safe and effective fail in human trials. Arsenic is not poisonous to sheep, penicillin doesn't work in guinea pigs, chloroform was kept off the market due to studies in dogs, the oral polio vaccine was delayed due to misleading results in monkeys. Cancer has been cured in mice, but it does not work in humans.
Please, only donate to health charities that help people without hurting animals, humaneseal.org has a list.
Only buy products that have not been tested on animals, like cosmetics or household products, and even pet food. Some petfood companies like IAMS, Eukanuba, and Purina torture animals in laboratories.
Only buy products with the leaping bunny logo on it. Even things like toothpaste, soap,mouthwash, lipstick, diaper cream, sunscreen, pretty much every personal care product may have been tested on animals.
Refuse to dissect animals in school, and refuse to use animals in medical or veterinary school, where animals are sometimes intentionally hurt, when alternatives exist.
Find out if your local hospital or university/alma mater experiments on animals, and voice your displeasure.
