Are Zoos Unethical By:Kalynn Deppe An issue that has been hotly debated since the brink of zoos has been whether they are ethical or not. Although some believe that zoos can be beneficial to animals, thousands of research has shown this not to be true. The main reasons zoos are devious is because, there artificial environments are harmful, the animals are more prone to diseases, and it can damage children's views on society.
Glamglow, e.t.c. While these list of brands do not test on animals: Lush, Kat Von D, Bath & Body Works; Smashbox, and Wet N Wild. Most manufacturers still support animal testing because they follow regulations, primarily in China, where it is required for cosmetic products produced outside of the country and imported for sale be tested on animals first. Thus, companies will undergo these animal tests to make an extra profit as they will be allowed to sell their products in
In fact, there are also products that had been tested in animal testing are return back from markets when it is found not qualify to human use and this situation have become human are being tested. Consequently, animal testings are not ensuring the safety of products for human use and medical researches should be reconsidered of using animal testing in medical
If some countries have come up with the idea to take care of animals and have made even groups and organizations against animal abuse why do, they inhumanly abuse animals for testing. Experimental tests on animals its something unessential, and what if results are erroneous and in animals works perfect and on human results badly. As well, we know that the human body its pretty similar to an animal's body. Some doctors say that animal testing can slow down he results for a research or for a product.
Despite the surprising numbers, the only one law that regulates animal researches is Animal Welfare Act. But how ludicrous this law is that cannot restrict the types of experiments scientists perform. Not only is animal testing have unreasonably loose law enforcement, the abuses faced by the animals in the experiment procedures are also unimaginably cruel and horrified. The animals are confined and isolated in a barren cage with all rights being deprived. Breathing in toxic fumes, implanting electrodes to the brain, repeatedly breeding, exposing to radiation and testing various drugs to infecting diseases are just a few items on the list that they have to face.
So the issue of animal testing is very controversial, can we imagine ourselves in a small cage being tested on chemicals without knowing the results whether they are going to help or kill us ??? Or animal testing should be banned or not ?? Animal testing is really important to its effect on the medical side , its influence on commercial side and there is no alternatives for using animals. Opponents for animal testing argue that animal tests do not reliably obtain results in human beings.
Animal testing is used among many companies all over the world. Is it useful, appreciable, successful? Animal testing should be banned because it is cruel, has a poor success rate, and is unnecessary. Many think otherwise, such as that animal testing is helpful with curing diseases, but over all the time and trials there’s too much harm caused to too many animals. First of all, animal testing is cruel.
Scientists are not only hurting animals in the process but also putting patients’ in danger. “(W) e have cured mice of cancer for decades”... ”It simply didn’t work on humans” (Moore2). It is just a poor predictor of their effect on humans (Hamil 2). Our world has been introduced to so many new methods as to where we can simulate human’s reaction to different experiments.
But in these cases they are sanctuaries, or special places that these animals are at so they are being saved and helped. Almost never are zoos, aquariums, or circuses saving animals because they are almost extinct or because the animals were hurt. The animals in these places were most cases born into captivity and so they cannot return to the wild. Therefore they must stay in these places, which is not fair to them because they had no choice of being born into that
However, cosmetics that have already been legally tested on animals were continued to be sold in Norway’s market. Israel became the third country to ban the import, marketing and sale of any cosmetics, toiletries or detergents whose manufacturing process involves animal testing, India was the first country in Asia to ban animal testing on cosmetics. If any person or company owner was caught to be using animal testing, they could be jailed for 3-10 years and be fined $10-$200 Singapore
People say that if u test on the animals nobody would care if they died. The also say that it won’t harm the animals but it really does. Some people also say that animal testing is bad because of the danger you are putting the animals in. The animals are going extinct because of the testing.
This relief of human suffering has been highly debated for many years. Animal testing has been a controversial topic that many companies and activists either strongly fight against or stand for. As previously mentioned, animal testing has assisted in scientific research to develop new products and vaccinations. For
That is true, and it is inevitable, but what we can all agree upon is, only 95 percent of animals use for research are not protected by the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA), and those animals are, rats, birds, mice, and some cold blooded animals such as reptile and some fish (“animal-testing.procon.org” 1). Here is one counterclaim argument that is use in defense against the use of animals for scientific research, for example on the site debate.org, a user posted that “experimenters are willing to pay people a lot to be tested on in place of animals. Well why would anyone want to be tested on? Because they are in need of money, example: the homeless. If more people would be tested on in place of animals, there 'd be less poverty, less animal suffering, and more accurate results” (Emily16 4).
Animal testing has been a controversial issue for the past thirty years. Society feels as if animal testing is a technique of the past and should be outlawed in the United States like the majority of the world. Federal law shows us how little protection animals have, numerous recalled or discontinued medications are proof that research on animals to predict effects on the human body is highly unreliable. The humane society provides numerous examples of the cruel treatments and conditions animals must endure. Scientists have presented us with alternatives that are more cost-effective and produce less waste with higher accuracy rates.
My own view is that animals should not be used for medical testing because some medicine can work with animals, but we do not know how well the medicine will work on humans. Animal testing has killed millions of animals throughout time, due to the fact that they have been used for testing. It is true that animal testing has been successful on some occasions and that it has helped to improve medical treatments, but also it has been the cause of serious problems. Just because something worked on animals does not mean that it would work on humans as well. For example, the article “Animal Testing” states that “the 1950s sleeping pill thalidomide, cause thousands of babies to be born with several deformities”(Animal Testing).
