Improved Lab Testing May End Use of Animals

"Improved laboratory testing could speed the process of checking chemicals for toxicity and reduce reliance on test animals, according to an analysis released Tuesday.

The National Research Council said improvements in methods of testing cells and tissues could lead to fundamental changes in the way toxicity testing is done.

Using cells, preferably of human origin, lab tests could indicate potential danger to humans by observing the effect on those cells or cell lines of commercial pesticides and other chemicals."
But I worry that some will protest the use of human cells... so this will get nowhere.
