: articles being tested are safe for human use i.e. medicine.
As much as companies may want you to think this, the results obtained from animal testing often do not apply _at all_ to humans. Think about how different the rat/mouse or rabbit (commonly used animals) and human immune systems are... Humans also display individual behavior, which is hard to represent in animals which may be force-feed drugs and/or locked in small cages where they cannot escape or have contact with their own kind. See the PETA page or other animal-rights pages for more information.
