The Ineffectiveness Of Animal Testing

604 Words3 Pages
Animal testing has been used by scientists to test drugs and makeup products for many years. They have been kept in labs, poked, prodded at, observed, forced to inhale, eat, and wear substances that have killed them. Millions of animals have died each year because of this testing, and it needs to be stopped. Animal testing should not be continued because it is ineffective, it wastes lives, and is inhumane.
Animal testing needs to be discontinued because it is ineffective. Animals are obviously different than humans, and many drugs/cosmetics react to animals and humans react differently.Because animals and humans are so different tests are not accurate and then humans are affected in turn. “The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has noted

Millions upon millions of animals are killed mercilessly every year due to these experiments. “Most animal experiments are not relevant to human health, they do not contribute meaningfully to medical advances and many are undertaken simply out of curiosity and do not even pretend to hold promise for curing illnesses” (Animal). Not only does this testing waste animal lives, but humans as well. Because animal testing is so ineffective, many humans have contracted illness, irritations, mental problems, etc. because of these drugs being successful on animals and not humans. Animal testing is ineffective, and inhumane because it wastes thousands of…show more content…
Yes, animals have been used in the past but, with the use of computers we can save lives, and make many more discoveries in the medical field. Animals don’t deserve to be kept in cages and be constantly observed and poked at. Thousands of animal lives are wasted every year and we can stop that by stopping testing on animals.
