Conclusion

 


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.
