Use animals other than humans to conduct scientific experiments to verify the impact of individual factors on the physiology or behavior of the tested animals, and compare them with the state of the same species of organisms in the natural environment to learn about the effects of human use of the product Safety and resistance to allergies.
If you think that being vegan is difficult, imagine being a factory farmed animal.
In the European Union, vertebrate species accounted for 93% of the animals used in research, and 11.5 million animals were used in 2011. It is estimated that the number of mice and rats used in the United States alone in 2001 was 80 million. Mice, rats, fish, amphibians and reptiles together accounted for more than 85% of the total number of animals used in the study.
How does animal testing work?
In the experiments, animals are forced to eat or inhale substances, or have them rubbed onto their skin or injected into their bodies. The animals are then subjected to further monitoring and testing before almost always being killed, so that researchers can look at the effects on their tissues and organs.
