The cow that died in 2010 in Southern Brazil and was diagnosed and found to contain prion protein made the Japanese government to suspend the importation of the raw beef from Brazil. Finally, in December 2012, the USDA enforced a law that required that livestock moving across the state to have a tag so that it made it possible for the easy identification of Bovine Spongiform
Millions of animals are abused and left to die a long exhausting death each year. Many people don’t know that the cosmetic products they own are tested to see if the products are safe for humans. In the process of the testing animals are tested using harmful chemicals that often burn the animal’s skins and the ruthless workers leaving them to die a long painful death. Animal testing is inhumane and should be banned. Animal testing kills and tortures millions of animals each year.
Smallpox was introduced into aboriginal societies via infected blankets supplied to them by the British soldiers. It is estimated that by 1900, the aboriginal population of Canada had decreased by upwards of 93%. Another prime example is colonialism in Africa. In the late 1800s, Italy introduced a cattle disease in several parts of Africa which severely impacted its cattle population. The depopulation of cattle had caused famines that killed numerous Africans.
Lungworms Lungworms are a parasite that infects your lungs and important blood vessels in your body. Cases of lungworms are seen in cattle. There's no explanation to how these animals get the disease, but there was a hot spot in southern New England that was common for cattle to catch lungworms. The only explanations are the moving of animals throughout the country and encounters with wildlife that is not urban. A lungworm is a parasitic worm also known as angiostrongylusvasorum, which affect cows.
One of the reasons animals should not be tested on is because there are tons of animals suffering and gasping for air from scientists giving animals drugs, just to see if the drug worked. This is a cruel and unnecessary process that needs to be stopped. For example, in the database article “Should we still allow medical drugs to be tested on animals” states,“it's cruel, sick and wrong to test drugs on animals”. This shows that animal testing is not necessary, even for the least harmful test possible. It is cruel to test things on animals and scientists definitely need to find a different way to test things.
Their customers sought to seek regulation of the meatpacking industry due to the contamination of their food. “The middle-class readers who bought the book demanded government action to ensure the safety of their food supply” (“Muckrakers” 120). Justice was attempting to hinder the vile practices of this industry through the public’s outcry. They felt threatened by the industry’s unregulated actions and needed authorities to change this. That traitorous industry underestimated the length its consumers were willing to go to fix their destructive
Euthanasia is a cruel and unnecessary practice that is not in the best interest for the animal. There are many different types of euthanasia animal shelters use to put down animals, the most popular type of euthanasia is called intravenous injection, which is a poison containing sodium pentobarbital. This poison is injected in the heart or leg without any pain killers. The animal is put to sleep and in some cases, they wake up when they feel the pain and start to struggle and fight the vet. Depending on the animals' size, depends on the number of injections.
There is much controversy on whether the slaughtering of horses should be allowed or not because the entire process that they go through is so bad and petrifying to the point where being dead is the best option that they can possibly have (Horse Slaughter-Wikipedia). Even though horse meat is in high demand for human consumption, it is inhuman because slaughterhouses use
An estimate of 150 million animals are harmed and killed from experiments and testing. Scientists infect animals, even baby animals with human diseases. Some animals die hours after their first test. Others die while the test is still going on. If we used plants such as some overpopulated flowers, or grass we could help out the test subject animals.
It’s merciless to breed and cultivate millions animals for experimentation only to throw them away afterwards, especially when the information gathered from those experiments can be profoundly inaccurate and a waste of resources. The NIH, a government granting agency, used about $30 billion in 2012 to fund for research and development that included animal testing. Animal experimentation can be avoided in total with the sophisticated alternative and technologies that are available today. Since there are a profusion of alternatives to avoid the inhumane use of animal testing, animal testing in cosmetics should be prohibited entirely. In the long run, if cosmetic products cannot be labeled safe through animal testing, then there is no feasible reason to continue with the horrendous
