Human Cost of Animal Testing

Extensive research shows that animal testing is inaccurate and unnecessary.  This post documents the high human death rate for medications tested on animals.

Emily Moran Barwick:  “In earlier posts, 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  the drug industry continues using animal testing 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 often kills humans.

Tell Seventh Generation to Stop Promoting Animal Testing

Animal testing does not protect human health or the environment from exposure to harmful chemicals.

“Please write Seventh Generation and tell it that reform of chemical safety legislation will succeed only by moving away from reliance on animal tests. As a company that enjoys the financial support of the cruelty-free market, Seventh Generation has a responsibility to stop promoting animal testing and to actively promote nonanimal testing methods wherever possible. And until it does this you will refuse to purchase its products.
