Animal experimentation
Posted February 14th, 2013 - 4:09 pm by from Bialystok, Poland (Permalink)
Empirical evidence* and well-established principles of evolutionary biology and complex systems imply that human organisms often exhibit contrasting susceptibility to chemicals comparing to other animals**. Therefore findings based on animal models can prove misleading as a predictive modality for humans. More accurate technologies, of 21st century science alternative to animal experimentation exist.

Please sign the petition to ban using animal experimentation for testing all consmetics in EU (it works!)

*Vioxx drug has killed about 80 thousand people worldwide after it passed animal tests.
**Basically humans are not 70kg rats.

Thanxx!!!

We can be their voice: Peta has the answers.
