We can eat chocolate, garlic, raisins and grapes which would make a dog poorly. Rats and mice can live in filthy places because their cells react differently to bacteria than ours. We would get ill very quickly if we lived in those conditions.

There are much better non-animal methods which relate to humans.

We need to get out of the dark ages of animal testing.
