People still support animal testing even through there are other better ways to test cosmetics and drugs that don’t hurt any living being. Animal testing is unethical to the animals and isn’t as effective as other materials we have access to. Animal testing brings millions of animals a world of pain. It’s cruel and unethical to sentence millions of living and breathing animals to a life of torture and pain. And according to a Listland article, animals used for animal testing aren’t even protected by the animal welfare act, a act that protects research animals from harm.
Animal Testing Animal testing has a lot of controversy behind it, it doesn’t matter which side you pick there’s just the matter that we need to test medicines, the fate of the human population falls in this subject. Medicines and other drugs are very delicate and it’s not like we can cut them out of society. Therefore we need something to test it on because if not we could set a new disease out on the world with an untested medicine. We might as well keep it how it is because there will just be more casualties from either untested medicines or testing on the human kind which are more than a billion times smarter than a monkey or rodent and could seriously hurt themselves or the people around them. So with that Commercial and Scientific animal testing should be supported because it can help scientist find a
Live animals aren 't necessary for testing, there are many options such as laptop software, robots, human tissue cultures, and mathematical statistics. Furthermore, the tests the animals are used for regularly come back with fake, misleading outcomes. Humans have been harmed because animals do not react the same way with certain drugs and treatments that people do. Animals additionally do not have the same genetic makeup that humans do, so testing drugs on them is useless. Finally, testing on animals has many moral problems that go with it.
“Animal testing for cosmetics and toiletries has long been banned in the UK, and as of March 2013, the sale of cosmetics whose ingredients have been tested on animals has also been banned across the European Union – a huge step forward.” Unfortunately, in some countries – China, for example – it’s compulsory for any company that sells cosmetics to pay for its products to be tested on animals. This means that some businesses that were cruelty-free for years have turned their backs on their ethical policies and started testing on animals in order to reach this lucrative market. Animals should be treated like this for human’s beauty
Because, we, the public, are mostly blinded by cover ups and lies that make animal testing seem like it's not a really bad thing, which is why I think it is important to know all the facts and why I think it should be banned forever. As stated in Humane Society International, the term animal testing “refers to procedures performed on living animals for purposes of research into basic biology and diseases, assessing the effectiveness of new medicinal products, and testing the human health and environmental safety of consumer and industry products such as cosmetics, household cleaners, food additives, pharmaceuticals and industrial/agro-chemicals.” Statistics reveal that, each year millions of animals such as dogs, cats, rats, mice, ferrets, hamsters and monkeys experience physical and mental torture due to scientific practices. This poor animals, every year, are dissected, infected, injected, gassed, burned and blinded in hidden laboratories all over the world, most of the time without anesthetic or pain killers. If they are not killed by the testing, the animals are brutally killed. Do you know what they do to these poor dead animals?
Animal testing has given us the ability to make advance realizations in the medical industry. Animal testing is not only in research but in cosmetic products.”American women use an average of 12 personal care products per day, so product safety is of great importance...The US Food and Drug Administration endorses the use of animal tests on cosmetics to assure the safety of a product or ingredient.” (ProCon.org, 9) Products that aren't cruelty free are being used daily in average personal routines. The choice to test on an animal first has helped cosmetic chemists to make more safe and efficient products for consumers. The same thing pertains to Pharmaceutical Scientists, in making medicine, testing on an animal can improve their testing on what works and what
1.0 Introduction 1.1Background of the issue This report is written to study the effects of animal testing on the cosmetic products among the developing countries as there are issues which happened to cause government and non-governmental organisations as well as the societies around the world to analyse the relationship between the two. Animal testing is an experiment that is carried out on the animals to ensure the safety and effectiveness of certain medications or cosmetics. In 1930, ‘Lash Lure’, a mascara which is a type of cosmetic product that contains a chemical that could burn the skin has caused more than a dozen women to go blind. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act was passed in 1938 prompted by requiring safety testing of
Supporters say animal testing is beneficial for medical research and also a key discovery to all sorts of new cures and medicines. While others say animal testing is unreliable, cruel and wasting the lives of many. Key issues in this debate include whether animal testing is beneficial for medical research or animal testing is cruel and should be avoided. Animal testing
Animal testing is an ethical issue that many agree and multiple disagree with. Is animal testing a humane way to conduct medical research? This is a question that I often ponder on. However, I do believe that animal testing is an inhumane way to conduct medical research. I will be defending the claim that not only is animal testing unethical, but it is unreliable.
Do you know that a lot of the products we use on a daily basis involve some type of animal testing? Products that we use every single day are tested on animals such as Windex, Post-it notes, and even Vaseline. Animals have been used for testing since the old ages and a lot of scientists depend on the use of these animals for the development of scientific research. But is the use of animals for scientific purposes really necessary in creating these products? Even though some may say that the use of animal testing has contributed greatly to scientific research it isn 't really worth the risk and torture towards them.
