Research On Animals: Today is World Welfare Animal Day. The purpose of this day is to talk about animal protection in the world, if any species is in danger then it is to be saved. If an animal is being tortured, then the animal has to be protected from its hands too, but today we are going to introduce you to such a fact. Millions of animals are killed or burnt every year in the name of researching medicines made for humans.  Interestingly, the Animal Welfare Act has been simplified in this case to kill animals in testing, that is, if animals are killed in the name of research, then no action can be taken. Let’s try to understand the game of death happening in the name of research in 10 points.
