Torturing millions of animals to death just for human: Is this the right thing to do? Frankie L. Trull says in 2014, France and Germany succeed tin regenerating damaged brain areas in mice for the first time. Some scientists and people, including Trull believe that this result could lead to treatments for damage to the human brain caused by everything from strokes to bullet wounds. It is definitely helpful if it leads to treatments for human brain and save millions of people, but the thing is they
Hundreds of lives have been saved along with hundreds of animal lives. The testing of animals has prevented millions of cases of over 200 diseases within animals. In humans, the development of vaccinations for multiple diseases has come from animal testing. This article’s purpose was to tell the achievements that animal testing has accomplished over the years. It also showed that animal testing does not only help humans but animals too.
Penicillin, insulin, and Polio vaccine are some life-saving cures and medical treatment which was found by using animals as an experimental objects. The experiment using dog with its pancreas being removed beforehand led to the discovery of insulin which is critical to help diabetics. The polio vaccine, which originally was tested on animals, reduced the global occurrence of the disease from 350,000 cases in 1988 to 223 cases in 2012. Even the California Biomedical Research Association states that “for more than a hundred years, virtually every medical breakthrough in human and animal health has been the direct result of research using animals.” It clearly indicates that without “animal testing” we may not be able to achieve these big medical breakthroughs
Is animal testing necessary? Did you know that about 70,000 animals are killed every year due to animal testing? Well, it’s true. This topic is something less talked about and often avoided. Because, we, the public, are mostly blinded by cover ups and lies that make animal testing seem like it's not a really bad thing, which is why I think it is important to know all the facts and why I think it should be banned forever.
Animal Inhumanity We do not have the right to test on animals. 26 million animals are used for animal testing and scientific research each year. (9) From mice to monkeys, scientists use them all around the globe. Animal cruelty is not as present as it used to be, but it is still happening around the world today, if more people were aware of this, there could be changes in the industry. Animal testing has been around since 384 BC by greek physicians and scientists.
PROS OF ANIMAL TESTING Nearly every nobel Laureate in physiology or medicine since 1901 has relied on animal research. Animal testing has decreased heavily over the years, with not very necessary things like makeup. Without animal testing we wouldn't have the many of the surgerys that we can today such as hip replacement surgery, kidney transplants, heart transplants, or blood transfusions. Modern anesthetics, the tetanus vaccine, penicillin and insulin all relied on animal research in their development.97% of the UK research is done on mice, rats, fish and birds. And they all follow the regulations of state.
The Suggestion was made that scientists should explore alternative options, such as testing on cell and tissue cultures. On the other hand, Sabin also puts forward an argument in support of animal testing, as her dear late husband Albert Sabin conducted many tests on animals whilst perfecting his vaccine against polio. The sacrifice of these animals has enabled entire generations of humans to grow up without fear of the crippling effects of polio. Animal rights advocates who see animal experimentation as cruel and wasteful overlook the fact that it has been instrumental in developing medicines that have saved countless human
A pro to animal testing is that it doesn 't put humans to harm. If the product used on the animals work, then it may possibly work on the humans, but it isn 't reliable. Animal testing can have both pros and cons to it. Over 100 million animals are burned, crippled, poisoned, and abused in US labs every year. Problem Significance The History of Animal Testing Animal Testing has been around for many years and has been used all over the world.
Many people think that animals should be tested because some substances may be harmful to humans if not thoroughly tested for safety. Other medications may have no curing effects at all. People want to use animals, because they are biologically like animals in many ways. However, abuse is rampant in the scientific research area. However, evidence still shows that ninety-five percent of an animals are not covered by the AWA.
So, they need to observe them. In population health setting, zoonotic disease threats should be addressed through the systems that included domestic and wild animals and human’s populations, which would help lead to effective control mesures. That the physicians and veterinarians would report all outbreaks and communicate between hospital epidemiologist and local health officials to see what they thought would be the best option for the patient. In the research setting, between physicians and veterinarians in comparative medicine would improve our understanding of zoonotic agent-host
