Vegan Nugget #18: Animal Testing Part Three: The Human Cost of Animal Testing

The most perverse aspect of the animal testing debate

So we’ve looked into the scientific inefficacy of animal testing and how it has failed to produce any useful results for humanity. We’ve also taken a look into why it continues to be used even though it doesn’t work.

Today we’ll address yet another absurdity of animal testing: it not only doesn’t help but actually harms and, in many cases, kills humans. This is the most perverse aspect of the animal testing debate: it’s actually dangerous and fatal for humans, the very species the researchers claim to be doing all of this madness for…

Maybe you could give a shit about animals, and don’t really care as long as humanity is benefitting…well, animal testing is still something that you should be against!

The argument that animal testing is necessary for the sake of saving human lives is already ridiculous when one looks at the mountains of evidence of its absolute inefficacy.  Add on the fact that drugs approved via animal testing have gone on to seriously harm, maim, and kill people, and any argument for the continuation of animal testing becomes all the more ludicrous.

such is the pretzelogic buzz
in the world of human
“stupid does”
and in his refusal
to adapt to truth..
he harms himself.
(an inevitable forsooth)

    vivisectors and their supporters always ask: do you prefer to save a child or a mouse? I want to save both, vivisection kills both :(

      I agree, hon. They only use that as an excuse to (falsely) discredit us. They will do anything to get their “message” across.
