Did you know that almost every product that you come into contact with – from cosmetics to household products, to medical drugs, have all been tested on animals first? And did you also know that these tests are inconclusive because animals have different DNA structures to humans
Well then why are companies still practicing impossibly cruel tests on animals?
The answer is that nobody stops them, until now. As a consumer you are singularly the biggest influence on the decisions that these companies make. If you stand up and refuse to purchase any product or drug that has come at the expense of cruelty and murder, then you will change the entire industry.
