World Day for Lab Animals 2018

Although advanced non-animal methods are steadily replacing the use of animals in research, laws are outdated, still requiring animal tests to be carried out before products can be put on the market.

Animal experiments are flawed in three key areas:

  1. Each species responds differently to substances, therefore animal tests are an unreliable way to predict effects in humans.
  2. Human diseases in laboratory animals are not naturally occurring so need to be artificially created; they are different from the human condition they attempt to mimic.
  3. Living in a laboratory environment can affect the outcome of an experiment, with test results differing due to the animal’s age, sex, diet, and even their bedding material.

On World Day for Laboratory Animals 2018, please join ADI in supporting human-relevant research methods, better for animals and people.
