The Trump administration has announced new regulations that will change how scientists test the safety of chemicals.

EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler has ordered a total ban starting in 15 years of animal testing on products that are overseen by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Animal rights groups such as PETA cheered the decision, calling it a significant step toward ending testing on all animals throughout all federally funded institutions and programs.
