Animal testing is cruel and inhumane, it should not be acceptable to use animals in scientific research. Vivisection is another term for an animal experimentation including; dissection, administering drugs, brain damaging, and other painful and invasive experiences to animals. According to Humane Society International, animals used in experiments are subjected to force feeding, forced inhalation, food and water deprivation("Testing - American Anti-Vivisection Society.") Animals are very different from human-being therefore it can make a poor scientific results. They should not have to suffocate and die to be use in research and cosmetics testing because there are alternative choices and different techniques that could lead to the

In glass testing, such as studying cell cultures in a petri dish, can produce more relevant results than animal testing because human cells can be used. ("Scientific Alternatives to Animal Testing: A Progress Report.") There are micro-dosing, giving small doses to test for any reactions, and human could be volunteered for the experiment, and then the blood are analyzed after the small doses onto the skin.("Scientific Alternatives to Animal Testing: A Progress Report,") There are artificial human skin, such as the commercially available products EpiDerm and ThinCert, is made from sheets of human skin cells grown in test tubes or plastic wells and can produce more useful results than testing chemicals on animal skin. ("Scientific Alternatives to Animal Testing: A Progress Report,")("Greiner Bio-One Launches Artificial Skin to Replace Animal Testing,") There are computer models, such as virtual reconstructions of human molecular structures, can predict the toxicity of substances without invasive experiments on animals.
