This blog post is not really connected with stray animals, however I cannot stand this happening worldwide.
There is no limit of human thirst for violence. Almost everything what a man does brings death and destruction to other living beings. Maybe it is time to stop?
Vivisection is very spread phenomenon in our world. The roots of it go to the most ancient times of our history. We are so used to the fact that other beings give away their lives for our sake and comfort that consider all this as a standard. However is it really normal? How we allow this to happen? Not many people think about it, we are used to take everything for granted.
More than 150 million lives of our fellow creatures are taken away by painful experiments annually. Experimental animals are being burned, scalded, poisoned, starved to death, subjected to electric discharges, accustomed to the drugs and caused stomach ulcers, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, syphilis and even AIDS. People surgically remove eyes, cause bone fractures and brain damage to the majority of them. Animals are being poisoned and shoot down by plastic bullets and ammunitions for military purposes.
We entered third millennium and progress, both spiritual and physical, demands elimination of all barriers on the way to civilized development. However, can civilized society be based on violence, death and the shed of the innocence blood?
Majority of people live without understanding of invisible violence and cruelty in their everyday life. They go and without thinking purchase toothpaste, shampoos, drugs, body sprays and other useful things. We need these products, we bring them home and when they are finished we go and buy a new one.
People must begin to understand that behind these products stand its own history of cruelty and violence and pain, where animals were used in horrifying tests. Any products in your home have passed this awful test, unless you bothered yourself to find products which were not tested this way.
The support of such savageness on ignorance and lack of knowledge is a terrible mistake, a human vice and sin. We fool ourselves if we think that can bring peace to the world, change views, ideas and thoughts of other people, when at the same time we cannot even say to ourselves:
“ For God`s sake. I must get rid of this rubbish in my house.”
First of all we should control ourselves, not somebody else. It is where we should start, it is our departing point. The world starts in your home. Rejection of violence and cruelty also starts there. So does the progress. People should free their households from these disgusting aspects of habitual life.
However people say: “We will lose too much. You ask us to give up so many.” However the situation is absolutely vice verse. You will only win from doing it.
Take ideas of harmony, justice and denial of violence for the sake of care and compassion and express it in the market while buying all necessary products.
Now let`s have more detailed look on the tests of products and toxicological researches. To begin with, it must be mentioned that there exist cosmetics and household chemical goods produced without vivisection.
Also very often people say that if there will be no test it will cause risk for the man`s health.
Such statement is miserable propaganda, created by animal`s exploiter.
85 percent of experiments on animals conducted over the past 100 years in order to develop new drugs and methods of treatment, fall into the period from 1950 to the present. However, the average life expectancy over this period has not changed, while the number of chronic diseases continues to increase.
As all of us can see that the vivisection in medical field is absolutely senseless. The fact is that, due to anatomical and physiological differences of human and animal, testing of a new drugs and therapies on animals is inefficient and even dangerous.
Moreover not only drugs are being tested on animals, cosmetics, construction and packaging materials, cleaning products and other products are too. Animals inhale vapors from the substance whose concentration is so great that most of the animals die from the poisoning straight away.
Think twice is it the right price for your beauty?
A huge number of companies are testing their product on animals carefully concealing this fact. Only through an international organization PETA the world now knows the names of these major brands. There is no doubt that you are familiar with many of them.

Many are known right? How much of this products are in your bathroom right now and are in use every day?
However, not all modern brands indulge in violence. Here is the most well-known companies who said their firm “No” to senseless murder.
Choosing an ethical makeup, do not hesitate to ask sellers, managers and shopping guide – demand determines supply!
I am hopping that someday the world will treat vivisection for science`s sake as it treats now burning people in the name of religion.
