12. I sure don't.

Since when is an animal's physiology similar to a humans? They aren't and all the testing does is torture animals to give scientists a best guess at how things will affect humans.

Also, though there are computer models that can now be employed, some universities continue to use and torture animals because of the funding they receive to do so. It's more about money than research. You don't have to believe PETA to know this stuff. You don't even have to use PETA as a source.

I'm happy your wife has a "no whiskers" policy in her lab but that doesn't negate the fact that even if scientists follow guidelines, animals are still tortured. Why not offer humans the opportunity to participate in these tests for money? At least they'd have a choice in the matter. But it isn't allowed because it isn't safe.
