Introduction

End to Animal Testing Thousands each day, millions each year died due to testing. These animals are used in laboratories to test chemicals in products and also used in research for the study of diseases such as cancer and AIDS. Unfortunately, the prices that these animals had to pay were too much for them to handle, tremendous suffering, and most often death. The legislation established by the government, guidelines for animal testing in laboratories does not apply to every animal. There are still many who question whether or not animal testing is actually reliable in research for human products and diseases. The issue of animal testing becomes a big question, whether it's humanly to do animal testing for human benefits?

If we are looking to make any progress in medicine, an entirely new approach is required. It is dangerous to apply data received from one species and apply it to another entirely different species. Also, we never know what's behind these cruel practices to the poor animals. We need to leave these animals alone, and they should be where they belong, not within our hands because we considered ourselves as "superior."
