Animal experimentation is also ineffective method. The main reason why they are inaccurate is because of the huge differences between humans and animals. Many times animals have been tested on a drug and the drug was considered not harmful. But, was then later tested on a human and the human died. Animal testing is just killing animals for no reason because there will always be the first human to test a new drug or cosmetic. So, using animals is really useless because just because a drug is safe for an animal does not mean it will necessarily be accurate and safe for humans. PISC scientist Gilly Stoddard says “it is unconscionable that animals are dying as a result of the failure to update testing guidelines.” (O’Driscoll 8) Animals should not be dying because humans are using them for inaccurate tests.
Nowadays it seems like legal drugs are more expensive than illegal ones. This dilemma occurs because the pharmaceutical industry affects the economy significantly. Although the United States is a mixed market economy, there are instances where the economy seems like a free market economy. A free market economy allows companies to determine the prices of goods free from government intervention. The pharmaceutical industry, despite several regulations set by the food and drug administration, is a free market economy. Meaning, the pharmaceutical sector lacks government regulation and has control over the prices of specialty drugs desperately needed by the public. Therefore, the pharmaceutical industry being a free market negatively affects the
In this paper, I will be making an argument about why animal testing is a good thing for humans to have for the sake of products. Animal testing has caused a great relief of pain and suffering to humans. It has been the foundation of humans finding curves for diseases and then being able to treat those diseases. Animal testing makes it possible for humans to develop new drugs and vaccines. Personally, I stand for the use of animal testing as a beneficiary of science and human products.

The Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 also known as the Hatch-Waxman Amendments is significant because it establishes the way the public have access to affordable, safe generic drugs and the process by which those drugs get approved and marketed. To understand the importance of this act it is vital to know the process for how patent on drugs worked before this law was put into place. The time frame of a “patent or process for manufacturing a drug or therapeutic use for a drug” was that any one could bring the drug to the market immediately after the patent was issued or sooner. Yet for new drugs, it was a longer process. You would have to get approval from the FDA before going out on the market as well as have the necessary data from clinical trials
"Every day, we are helping millions of patients manage chronic conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes - and all of these conditions are made worse by smoking," said Larry Merlo, chief executive officer of CVS Caremark Corporation, in the announcement made last week. "Tobacco products have no place in a setting where health care is delivered." But if the goal really is to turn CVS into a broader health-care company, what about drugstore staples like candy, chips and soda - high-sodium, high-fat, and high-sugar foods? Is the decision an indicator of a more comprehensive change to come in goods supplied by our national chain drugstores?

In our day in age, humanity is constantly threatened by evolving viruses and diseases that could possibly wipe out our population. To combat these dangers, we create vaccinations that give our bodies a kind of shield. However, scientists can not immediately test the vaccination on humans, for there may be some undesirable side effects that make the vaccination hurt more than it helps. This is why scientists first test the vaccinations on animals. Although this practice further helps mankind stay healthy, many are against this because many companies mistreat the animals they test their products on. That’s why there are laboratory animal technicians. These workers ensure that the animals in laboratories are treated
