Health charities that conduct or fund experiments on animals are included on the "do test" list. These organizations deal with human health issues ranging from lung cancer to drug addiction to blindness. While some do have relevant and effective projects that help to improve human lives, all of them drain money away from these projects and into cruel experiments on animals. Animals are starved, crippled, burned, poisoned, and cut in an attempt to study human diseases and disabilities. Such experiments have no practical benefit to anyone. They are unnecessary, unreliable, and misleading.
"Enormous variations exist among rats, rabbits, dogs, pigs, and human beings, and meaningful scientific conclusions cannot be drawn about one species by studying another," says Neal Barnard, M.D. "Non-animal methods provide a more accurate method of testing and can be interpreted more objectively."
