I'm Mayim Bialik, and I play neurobiologist Amy Farrel Feller on the Big Bang Theory.
In real life, I'm actually a neuroscientist as well.
Do you want to know my most often-heard myth that's not true?
Myth number one
Animal testing is the only way to ensure that drugs are safe for human use.
All drugs that enter into clinical trials must undergo extensive animal testing.
Yet, 90% fail in human trials.
Best case?
That might mean you, the patient, experience absolutely no benefit from the drug.
Worst case?
You end up with, say, a damaged liver, kidneys, blind, or dead.
Myth number two.
Without animal testing, there's no hope to cure diseases.
Not only do alternatives exist, they're being developed at record speed.
The world is moving towards a future dominated by more sophisticated methods.
Using computers, robots, and even artificial and real human cells and organs.
These methods are faster, often less expensive, and as effective - if not more - than current and often extremely out-dated animal experiencing used today.
Myth number three.
There is nothing we can do to stop animal testing.
The good news is, groups like the Humane Society of the United States
are working towards the development and acceptance of non-animal test methods world wide.
And you can definitely help, end cruel and unnecessary animal testing.
