The value of animal experimentation has been grossly
exaggerated by those with a vested economic interest in its preservation.
Because animal experimentation focuses on artificially created pathology,
involves confounding variables, and is undermined by differences between
human and nonhuman anatomy, physiology and pathology, it is an inherently
unsound method to investigate human disease processes. The billions
of dollars invested annually in animal experimentation would be put
to much more efficient, effective and humane use if redirected to
clinical and epidemiological research and public health programs.
