Here's a nice bit of news regarding cosmetics company L'Oreal and animal testing. L'Oreal has reportedly announced that it will donate $1.5 million to the EPA to help the agency develop computer models that would eliminate the need for animal testing:
The $1.2 million dollars from L'Oreal will allow the EPA to continue to calibrate a computer model that tests how toxic certain chemicals are, said David Dix, deputy director of the EPA's National Center for Computational Toxicology.
"Using state-of-the art methods, we hope to show that products can be proven safe for the consumer without the use of animals," said Jared Blumenfeld, regional EPA administrator.
The system, called ToxCast, uses complex mathematical algorithms and computer testing to determine if a particular product could cause harm to humans.
But researchers must use earlier results of animal testing to confirm that the computer-aided testing is accurate, said Monica Linnenbrink, an EPA spokeswoman.
Obviously, anyone with half a brain can see this is a PR move, but at least it's still good news for those animals sitting in cages looking like they just got dragged out of a drag house.
