Even though technology has increased drastically, animal testing still seems like one of the most efficient resources to gather information from. There are many positive and negative outcomes from using animals as experiments in medical research. This allows for scientists to have a better understanding of the way the human body functions and the effects drugs may have on humans. Animal testing broadens possibilities of finding cures for illnesses and diseases. What many scientists do not realise is that the effect of a certain drug may differ on animals and humans.
Current animal testing has been a contentious subject ever since it started off 150 years back. Although a lot of people discover animal testing inhumane and egoistic, it is a important factor to boost our understanding of medication and to improve our understanding of science. Animal testing, to some, is the way to ameliorating our level of living and preserving many lives, and therefore has many benefits. On the other hand, the negatives may not be passed, and scientists are constantly trying to decrease the damages with some methods they create in the process. Even so, to the dismay of numerous animal lovers in addition to those who are endeavoring for animal rights, animal testing will not be stopped every time soon because, for now, it is the most trustworthy form of testing that includes the safety of daily products we use more carefully than any other procedure.
Animal experimentation may be very important but it is questioned whether or not if it is wrong and if there is any way to find substitutions in place of using animals. Animal experimentation can be very useful for testing new products and finding new medical treatment’s to save people’s lives. Many people’s lives depend on the research done on the animals. If scientist did not experiment with animals many more people would lose their life (Derbyshire). Animals are used to test new medical treatments to see if they will be effective on humans.
This law requires facilities be humane and inspected regularly by the USDA (nabr.org). Don't be fooled, animals used for testing aren't as abused and neglected as you've been mislead to think. What would be the point in testing something know to be inaccurate? The opposing side likes to create graphic images in your mind to make you feel sorry for the animal; however, as has been explained, most of these images are false. Animals are very effective test subjects for medicine because they have bodies that work similarly to ours.
Scientists use animals instead of humans because experimenting against humans is viewed as impractical and unethical. The debate of animals being used in commercial products and educational exercises is an emotionally stimulated issue going on in modern society. Many animal rights groups, including PETA, have found that the way that animals are being treated during testing is morally wrong. Emotion may be the determining factor in deciding whether a person believes that animal testing is ethical or unethical. The use of animal testing has been beneficial, discovering many different medications that have saved human lives.
The foremost reason people are against animal testing is because animals are tested without their consent. Many animals go through pain, discomfort, and even death in these experiments. Some people who support animal testing refer to the fact that animal testing has obviously made many major medical discoveries. Also, support of animal testing is aimed to the protection of humans. Most scientists believe that humans are superior to animals, and that animals should be tested, although they do not necessarily agree with it (Dance).
As a result, they created an... ... middle of paper ... ...between animal research and medical benefit. Animal research is an important tool to develop new drugs or treatments and ensure the safety of the drugs. As a result, animal research is hard to be replacing by other research method. If animal research is banned, it will be a disaster for the biomedical research because most of the new medications cannot be test appropriately before releasing to the public. It may also increase the danger of the drugs.
It difficult to scarified innocent animals but those animals help human to continue living. While there are multiple accusations of animal cruelty, few people actually witness the inner workings of a research lab and multiple regulations prevent animal cruelty, but animal research still continues to cause pain (Wolff, 2009). The use of animals in experiment is fundamental for human descendent. Many Humans are absolutely positive that scientific should experiment with animals to save humans life. Because there are so many similarities between human and animal physiology, experimentation has allowed scientists to discover new treatments for diseases and guarantee the safety of new drugs (Foundation for Biomedical Research, 2009).
Animals in research have made many contributions leading to the treatments and cures of diseases that affects humans. Through the use of animals in experiments a better life has been accomplished. “Sweet are the uses of Adversity.” This quote said by Williams Shakespeare proves that all good comes with bad, just like using animals in research. Many oppose the use of animal for research claiming that it is not morally or ethically stable. Findings from animal experiments can potentially cure numerous medial issues such as cancer or the common cold.
There are many questions being asked if animal research is good or not or if the benefit for us is way greater the abuse of animals. Doing tests on animals can help find ways to cure diseases, but testing on them is wrong. Although we want to find cures for diseases to help many people, testing on animals not only brutally hurts them but it also denies the animals the rights they have. January 1st, 1959, W.M.S.
