A wise man once said, “He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.”(Goodreads.com). Animal testing is just a way to treat animals poorly. Scientists are able to be satisfied with themselves as they rub products into an animal's eyes without hesitation.

Those ways do not include animals suffering.

Animals cannot talk so they cannot agree to being tested on, nor can they say “stop” or “no.” These animals have to sit in silence and put up with the pain.

There are nearly 50 different ways to test that does not include animals. Some of the ways are using blood from volunteers, the 3T3 Neutral Red Uptake Phototoxicity Test, EpiSkin, and EpiDerm (Humanesociety.org). Each of these can save
