The Problems With Animal Experimentation

Animal testing fails more than 90% of the time!
The Top Five Issues With Animal Experimentation:

1. Animals are unreliable models for trying to predict outcomes in humans because:

  • There are crucial differences between species.
  • What works in animals often does not work in humans.
  • What is safe for animals can be dangerous for humans.
  • What doesn’t work in animals might save human lives.

2. Animal experiments are expensive and take a long time.

3. Animal experiments are harmful to animals and humans.

4. Animal-free methods often outperform animal experimentation.

5. Animal-free methods enable research that would otherwise be impossible.
