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. To begin, zoos are unprincipled due to the fact that they take animals out of the wild and place them in synthetic environments that have failed to meet the animals designated standard of living. For example, research has shown that some larger animals need for space is not fulfilled in their confined cages.
Some of the most notable beauty brands that test on animals in China are Estee Lauder, Avon, Clinique; Maybelline, Nars, and Elizabeth Arden. 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
Animal studies have failed because of animal research are inadequate to detect rare events, animal testings usually carry out in healthy animals and the effect of the disease on the biological activity of test compounds is undefined while animal models exaggerated pharmacology well but not modelled well when specific infections involved (Cavagnaro and Lima, 2015；Polson and Fuji, 2012). 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. Some years ago, they inferred that animal testing cannot speculate how high the risk can be of a product or drug on
In 2015, 767,622 animals (with no rats or mice) were already sacrificed for experiments. 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.
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. Also drugs and vaccines applied on animals fail on human clinical trails.
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. Making a new and safe environment would not only help the animals, but also put less emotional stress on the scientists.
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
Animal testing was banned in all areas except pharmaceuticals, though some pharmaceuticals are used cosmetically. 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
