I hope you never need penicillin (experiments on mice), organ transplant (experiments on dogs), or a polio vaccine (experiments on mice, monkeys).
What will YOU choose?
"It is estimated that 100 million vertebrate animals worldwide, from zebrafish to non-human primates, are used annually and either killed during or after the experiments." - National Science Foundation
Most are species that are purpose-bred, such as worms, flies, mice and rats, for experimentation.
Why is it only the 'cute mammals' that get PETA angry?
Why doesn't Pure Research, Applied Research, or Xenotransplantation, anger PETA as much as Toxicological testing?
What about drug and cosmetics testing?
" Most scientists and governments agree that animal testing should cause as little suffering to animals as possible, and that animal tests should only be performed where necessary. The "three Rs" are guiding principles for the use of animals in research in most countries:
Reduction refers to methods that enable researchers to obtain comparable levels of information from fewer animals, or to obtain more information from the same number of animals.
Replacement refers to the preferred use of non-animal methods over animal methods whenever it is possible to achieve the same scientific aim.
Refinement refers to methods that alleviate or minimize potential pain, suffering or distress, and enhance animal welfare for the animals still used." - National Science Foundation
Unless you are a certified organis vegan, who lives in a completely organic home (a log cabin without electricity), and wear only organic fiber clothing; you owe most of the things you enjoy today to animal testing.
Especially the computer you are using today.
Personally - given your shrill extremist views on a variety of subjects - I have no objection if you want to give up posting here ever again, give up using your computer, and retire it.
But again - if you got rid of it, that would cause a certain amount to toxic waste; and of course the reason we know it is toxic - and how to handle it - comes from animal testing.
If you keep using however, then you owe something to experiments done on vertibrate mammals to determine toxicological responses to chemicals and electronic fields.
Tough choice huh? Don't trouble your pretty little vacant head over the above questions.
Don't worry, I have 100% certainty
that I know the choice's you will make.
