“Nine out of ten drugs that pass animal studies fails in humans” (Moore 2). Many patients in the world of medicine need drugs with low risk factors. Animal experiment is becoming a thing of the past and for good reasons. The experiments are no longer answering the scientists questions, but when the products does work on animals it is never going to be hundred percent for humans. Animal experimentation is wrong because animals can register pain just like humans, the medication is not reliable, and money is lost when it is ineffective.
Transgenic animals are used in the labs as models in biomedical research and are tested on in many different ways they are testing many things on different animals such as too see if transgenic chickens will grow bigger and faster than other normal chicken’s and too see if transgenic sheep will grow larger and produce more wool, they trying to create better and stronger animals. Transgenic organisms have also been developed for commercial purposes. Food crops like soy and corn that have been genetically modified that are resistant to pests and herbicides. These crops are widely known as genetically modified organisms and are the next big thing because they are resistant’s against pests and are cheaper to
At least 115 million animals may be used in experiments worldwide each year. 115 million animals are infected, blinded and electrocuted every year. Throughout the years many other techniques have been used to try and find cures and vaccines for different diseases, to try to spare these innocent lives, but none seem to have stuck. However, new technology is being invented every day, like the world 's first three-dimensional, multi-cellular test tube model of early human breast cancer, to replace tests involving implanting tumors in mice. So, people can remain hopeful that soon animal testing will be a thing of the past.
If medical experiments wouldn’t be conducted on humans, other animals shouldn’t have to be subjected to them either since they also feel pain. So it is morally wrong to perform medical experiments of products intended for human use on animals since the experiments are agonizing whether it be humans or other animals. And also depending on the experiment, “lab animals will sometimes suffer more than people would, sometimes physically, sometimes psychologically.” (Greenhaven press #84). Sometimes animals can feel more physical or emotional pain than humans would in certain
As I have been saying is that animals react differently and don't function with different diseases like the ones we get. And why are we implanting them into these animals and basically killing them just for it not to work on humans. Finally, According to Cruelty Free International, “90% of drugs fail in human trials despite promising results in animal tests – whether on safety grounds or because they do not work.’’ Over all animal testing is a bad thing and I hope it can stop
Also vaccines for animals would not be around if we could not test on animals. For example, author Siobhan O’Neill says that, “They may have helped save millions of lives, and for those of us who need to take medicines, we have little control over whether those medicines are tested on animals.” (O’Neill) This says that we need medicines to save people from sickness. Also most of these medicines were tested on animals. If a human gets a disease we need medicines to heal us. A lot of medicines were tested on animals before human usage.
Conducting these experiments only make animals seem like tools used for the progress of humanity, stripping away the factor that they possess the same right to life we abuse every day. Results are not promised, however pain and distress on the animal’s part
According to Watts in “Animal Testing: is it worth it?” from the British Medical Journal, there is no need for animal experimentation since there are other alternatives to the testing, and because of this many labs have already put these alternatives into practice. With modern technology being so advanced, animal experimentation is not needed anymore. The replacements of the live experiments are organs, tissues, and cells that are created in labs. The replacements are gaining popularity in the field of science; for instance, polio and rabies testing has been improved by the implementation of these new replacements. Many organizations have formed because of the rising popularity of this new method of testing.
It is true that scientists are trying to save endangered species by cloning them. However there fail rate is extremely high. Even though they are cloning the animals to trying and save them from extinction, they are killing many of the animals in the process of their scientific research and experimentation. If cloning humans most countries around the world is illegal, but cloning animals is fine? Scientists should have a general ethical code for all living
As stated above, animals should be continued to be used in research testing because it leads to more vaccinations for humans and animals. In “Use of Animals in Biomedical Research”, the American Medical Association states “A longer lifespan has been achieved, decreased infant mortality has occurred, effective treatments have been developed for many
