Fantasy v. Reality - Personal Care Products

Personal Care Products

Our desire to be beautiful often has disturbing consequences.  Among them, is the treatment of laboratory animals.  Although many consumers believe that animals must be sacrificed for the lives of human beings, much of the animal testing that takes place is not only unnecessary, it isn't even required by law.  (I tried to choose a photo that makes one think without being too disturbing.  The reality of animal testing is much more disturbing than this photo.)

It's really quite barbaric. We humans like to think we're evolved into caring people but I've yet to see the evidence. We care for what is ours and not much else I'm afraid. Sad.
