Pros least expensive scientific advancement takes place in labs everywhere you do not get the same result on others helps with telling the similarities and differences between animals and humans ensures safety of drugs most accurate many of todays uses would not be here animals reproduce faster find cures saves animals from diseases organ transplant was made possible saves many children computer models cannot always predict unknown variables cell cultures is not accurate we can have cosmetics, food, medications, and many others
Cons 22 million animals are used alternate ways of testing animals suffer stress and boredom causes animals to pull out their hair and bite their own skin millions of animals die poisoned, blinded and killed toxic to animals still sold to consumers ethics and morality… Is this right? accuracy is not always the best way to test price some substances are unusful
