What can be done about animal tests required by law?
Although animal testing of pharmaceuticals and certain chemicals is still mandated by law, the arguments againstusing animals in cosmetics testing are still valid when applied to the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Theseindustries are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency,respectively, and it is the responsibility of the companies that kill animals in order to bring their products to marketto convince the regulatory agencies that there is a better way to determine product safety. PETA is actively workingon this front by funding development and validation of non-animal test methods and providing input through ourinvolvement on government advisory committees at both the national and international levels. Companies oftenresist progress and, instead of using human-relevant non-animal tests, choose to use animal tests because theirresults can be manipulated. Please let companies know how you feel about this--consumers have considerableinfluence on company policy!
