    • I think you have an interesting topic with many layers. You cover the ethical side of the issue pretty well. I have a source by Steve Perrin you may be interested which covers the scientific side in case you’re “Preclinical Research: Make Mouse Studies Work.”

    • Megan!
      This is an awesome post! I actually have not looked into this topic before now and you have very well explained how animal testing and research using animals is very prevalent and is an ethical issue. I have never heard of ZEBET before and will definitely be looking into their program and what they are doing to limit testing on animals. I wonder what American companies are doing to help minimize their testing on animals and how we as consumers can be more aware of this problem. It might be interesting to see how many people are aware of what companies use animal testing in the production and creation of their products. Great job! Cant wait to read your final paper!
