More Technology, Less Animals

Some people would say that technology is bad for the environment, but in this case, technology will save the lives of many chimpanzees. Technology has gotten so advanced, that scientists believe that we can start  doing tests on gadget instead of chimpanzees. for now, this is only happening in the US, but the amount of chimpanzees being used for bio-medical engineering will be cut drastically. Chimpanzees are used for testing because their body is very alike to our own. So, instead of risking ourselves to test a medication, they test chimpanzees first. They see the results and then try it on humans. It is cruel and many chimpanzees die in the process. Now we will be testing on technology which will not only save the lives of many chimpanzees, but also get more accurate results. Not all the chimpanzees will be removed from testing, but this is one step closer from getting rid of animal testing entirely.
