Millions of animals die every day as a result to animal testing. Nancy Day said “ animals have been used in research for more than two thousand years”(p.37). Day also said” Galen, who was born in A.D. 129, is considered the founder of experimental physiology”(p.37). Day also said “it takes an average of seven years to test a new drug before the FDA can approve it for the general public”(p.31).Day also said ”critics of animal experimentation say that animals get different forms of diseases, experience disease differently, or have conditions that seem similar but have different causes” (p.68).
