    How does testing on a completely different species such as non- human animals progress knowledge about PD in humans regarding exercise and medications? Especially when the animals did not naturally develop PD, that they were given PD ? I am merely an attendee without any medical qualification but it seems that cruel animal testing is so outdated and is just a filler to show that researchers are ‘doing something’. I can see that the various testing and clinical studies and trials on humans with naturally developed PD as well as a control group of those without PD would obviously have much more positive and successful outcomes. It’s time to stop testing on animals because a mouse or a pig or a primate is not a man.
