I went to the Smithsonian Museum and realized how many animals were victims of toxicology. I don’t know if they were killed or not, but it still freaked me out and made me uncomfortable. But they probably were killed and are being used for human knowledge, which is kind of awful, but I just have really mixed feelings about it. What do you guys think?
Would you rather people be dead? All living things have two basic goals, reproduce and don’t become energy. The first animal most tests start with are daphnia, really small aquatic animals. Billions of them die from water filtration each day. I guess they’re just a victim of life. Most toxicological tests have an aim to kill as few things as possible and, more importantly, save the most valuable species.
