Every year, millions of animals experience excruciating pain and die in the name of research that does not reliably predict human outcomes. Live animals are used for burn research, psychological and physical pain research, given cancer, blinded, subjected to broken bones or strokes, swim tests in icy water, forced to inhale smoke, and more. All when alternative ways of research exist and it has been shown time and time again that, in research, animal models produce misleading results. Animal physiology is different than human physiology. For example, 90% of drugs that have tested safe in animals have proven unsafe for humans.
