Vast majority of Americans oppose cosmetic testing on animals

Now that the European Union has banned cosmetic products tested on animals, the push is underway to impose the same ban in the United States. A new poll by Lake Research Partners shows 67 percent of Americans opposed testing cosmetics on animals.

That’s an important result, but even still, I wonder what the other 33 percent are thinking? And 72 percent of women oppose this practice. So some men skewed the poll numbers down. What’s up with that?

And get this – the PRWeb article on this topic notes the “Food and Drug Administration does not require animal testing to prove the safety of cosmetics and personal care products . . .” So this isn’t even something the industry is forced to do.

This one should be easy. The federal government could ban this torture today.
