Saving Animals: New Ways to Test Products
This story in the New York Times does a better job than my post of a few days ago at laying out the developments in alternatives to animal testing that now exist. As noted in my post, the article also notes the head start the Europeans have in this arena. Nevertheless, the article also mentions a recent study issued by the National Academy of Sciences that was commissioned by the Environmental Protection Agency. The NAS study concluded that that over time, the use of animals for testing could be greatly reduced and possibly eliminated.
