I believe that animal testing is not good. Animals are living things just as much as humans are, and currently "90% of experimental drugs fail in clinical studies because we cannot accurately predict how the drugs work on people, compared to animal and laboratory studies - former secretary for the US Department of Health and Human Services - Michael O. Leavitt."

According to the Humane Society, registration of a single pesticide requires more than 50 experiments and the use of as many as 12,000 animals.
When used in cosmetic tests, mice, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs are often subjected to skin and eye irritation tests where chemicals are rubbed on shaved skin or dripped into the eyes without any pain relief. Over 100 million animals are burned, crippled, poisoned, and abused in US labs every year.
92% of experimental drugs that are safe and effective in animals fail in human clinical trials because they are too dangerous or don"t work.

Animal testing can help save peoples lives. Without it we don't know if a product is safe to use or not. They only way to tell would be to test them on ourselves. For example if scientists test a new drug that they think will cure a disease or sickness they can test it on an animal to see if their theory is right and if so they can use it on humans who have that sickness or disease. People will be able to use these new drugs to help them with their illness and even save some of their lives.

The pro says,"92% of experimental drugs that are safe and effective in animals fail in human clinical trials because they are too dangerous or don"t work.". But for sure we know that the 8% that doesn't pass the animal trials are definitely harmful for humans ,so by doing animal trails thousands of lives are saved .And I would prefer saving human lives over animal lives any day.
