Countries like: European Union, Israel, Norway, and India. While some countries are still considering it, they have not been approved. Other alternatives have been making a huge difference in the cosmetic world. Propaganda and other forms of media are always being released to fight against cosmetic testing allowing another genre of audience seeing these inhumane acts on these animals. Major companies use well known alternatives such as “In Vitro and In Vivo” are a few of the biggest testing alternatives known in banned animal testing countries.
glish Speech In the year 2000, over 2 million animals were used for animal testing in the UK. Animals used from all over for animal testing that ranges from drugs to our simple everyday shampoo. In the last decade, cosmetic animal testing on innocent animals has become popular practice – and I am talking about how wrong and inhuman this act is. The public doesn 't know about the seriousness controversial topic, which I am certain of knowing is wrong. We shouldn’t silent such a topic, because of fears of upsetting people who affected – yet they should know what they are applying to their face is being used to torture innocent animals.
Beauty guru 's on widespread social media like Youtube highly promote cruelty-free brands and all the reasons why they do. Many cosmetic brands like Kat Von D, Urban Decay, NARS, and Too Faced are 100% cruelty-free. While animals are in captivity for testing, the testers have to pay for housing, feeding and grooming the animals. The costs to do the procedure are pretty high to just throw the animals out afterwards. Because animals are so different than humans in so many ways, they make poor test subjects.
Hundreds of animals are being hurt everyday, but that can be stopped by eliminating animal testing.The Animal Welfare Act does not cover rats, mice, fish, or birds which are 95% of those animals are being used. Over 115 million dogs, cats, rabbits, and other mammals suffer and die every year, from animal testing. Although some people might say that animal experiments have contributed to many life saving treatments, animal testing should not be used, because it is unreliable, expensive and inhumane. Some people might say that some animals are similar to humans in many ways; however, most are not which is why animal experiments are unreliable. According to the article from NCBI ¨Laboratory procedures and conditions exert influences on animals’ physiology and behaviors that are difficult to control and that can ultimately impact research outcomes¨ (Beauchamp).
Animal Welfare Act did set minimal standards of animal care but every major circus is known to violate these. Examples of such violation of these minimal standards are trainers being known to use bull hooks, electric prods and collars, whips and clubs. According to statistics studied by the government of Netherlands into the state of circus animals, elephants are chained 17 hours every day and lions spend 98% of their time indoors. As a result of these extremely stressful living conditions, abnormal behavior will show, tigers will begin to pace within their small confined space and elephants will start bobbing their heads. Now, I don’t know if you are going to believe me when I say this but the University of Bristol in the UK
Later tests on pregnant mice, rats, guinea pigs, cats, and hamsters did not result in birth defects unless the drug was administered at extremely high doses. Animal tests on the arthritis drug Vioxx showed that it had a protective effect on the hearts of mice, yet the drug went on to cause more than 27,000 heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths before being pulled from the market. It should stop because if we keep killing animals millions a year after awhile they will start coming extinct. Some people might argue that god gave us animals to have to eat and use for purposes on earth like testing; but others will saying we are also hear and what's the difference between us and animals. During animal-testing they hurt and often torture the animals and what’s really sad is that most people also have their own pets they go to everyday but they work all day killing animals the same to theirs.
My photo of the wounded bunny is a great example of this scenario because a vast amount of bunnies are used to test the same product and yet all of them come out with different effects. The Journal of the American Medical Association even stated that “poor replication of even high-quality animal studies should be expected by those who conduct clinical research.” Consequently, inadequate test results do not guarantee consumer safety, which is why animal testing in cosmetics is deemed unnecessary. The Food and Drug Administration doesn’t even require animal tests to prove that a cosmetic is safe. There is a plethora of alternatives to animal testing that has been proven safe and dependable for years. Bath and Body Works, Urban Decay, and Victoria 's Secret are examples of companies who don’t use animal experimentation in their cosmetic products.
Banning Horse Slaughter Horsemeat has been discovered in the U.S food supply, and is dumped on the dinner plates of unsuspecting consumers. Not only do Americans overwhelmingly oppose slaughtering horses, but horses are not raised for food and over the course of their lives they receive a wide variety of drugs and other substances that make their meat tainted. Being sold for slaughter is one of the many challenges horse’s face to merely live their lives free of abuse and suffering. Hope can be found in the homes and hearts of millions of people ready and willing to protect them. Whether you ride horses, own them, or just love them, I urge you to play a part in their protection through adoption, donations, volunteering or advocacy.
Animal slaughter is the main reason why many people become a vegan/vegetarian. Animals are being tested for human products, they are being mistreated just to feed us,humans, something that wasn 't made for our bodies to digest. What can you really do stop animal cruelty? The easiest action is just to simply stop eating them. According to a well-fed world article “Factory Farms”, around nine billion animals are killed for food every year in the U.S. alone.
I’m here today to talk about a controversial issue that has been around for a period of time, animal testing. Animal testing using animals in experiments with different chemical substances in everything from medical to cosmetic to determine their safety as well as effectiveness . It’s a problem that has existed since the 3rd and 4th centuries BCE with its merciless methods and painful ways of abusing animals for human demands, but now it’s time for it to stop. Our technology has developed significantly since; therefore, such medieval methods of torturing animals are no longer necessary. Researches have shown that each year, over 100 million animals are tortured and killed in American laboratories alone, including dogs, cats and more; this shows how far out of hand animal testing have gotten.
