vivisection
Seventeen to 100 million mice, rats, birds, rabbits, cats, dogs, primates and other animals suffer and die in laboratories every year in the U.S. They comprise the research subjects in chemical, drug, food, cosmetics and medical training exercises to assure that products are safe for human use. But is this really the case? Though there is little mention of animal medical research, or vivisection, in the mainstream press these days, scientists, medical doctors and animal activists have railed against animal experimentation for decades. Does animal research do anything to advance human health and wellness? Despite all the years of experimentation, has it ever led to any cure or breakthrough? Can the results of research conducted on an entirely different species even be extrapolated to human beings? Is vivisection just a way for people in white lab coats to get away with torturing animals?

On today's episode of The Health and Wellness Show explored this topic in depth. Zoya's Pet Health Segment lightened up the mood with fun facts about farm animals.
