    Animal testing might be helpful but still this is like saying that we are able to test on humans and be fine with it. Since mice or rats are equivalent to humans they test on them, but some fruits are equivalent to us to like the banana, it might not yelp in pain or instantly die like animals and we do, but it sure can tell what’s toxic or not and what can explode or not. We need to stop doing this you wouldn’t do this to your household pet would you? Why do it to other animals??
