However, most people accept the elements of the above conditions for animals. Animals should not be a part of the pain and horrific conditions that humans put them through. We shouldn’t just let these innocent animals suffer and die to save human lives, when we could find other ways to treat diseases. Of course animal testing has contributed towards many life-saving cures and treatments. The California Biomedical Research Association states “nearly every medical breakthrough in the last 100 years has resulted directly from research using animals.” The polio vaccine, tested on animals, reduced the global outbreak of the disease from 350,000 cases in 1988 to 406 cases in 2013.
In today’s humanity, multitude amounts of animals are mistreated and eradicated during animal testing. Because testing on animals has become a law throughout the world, a lot of scientists have not realized the immortality that has been put upon the animals. Is it fair to test cosmetics and potential carcinogens on animals? During each year, millions of animals are tested on for biomedical research, chemical testing and training (Lee Bowman 2011). Testing cosmetics and chemicals on animals is catastrophic because it is abusive, detrimental and carcinogenic.
Reasons we test products on animals There are many different reasons that scientist and manufacturers choose to test their products or experiments on animals. Animals are tested because many people think it would be inhumane to test on humans so they decided that animals would be the next best thing. Products are also tested on animals so they can be sure that the product is not harmful to humans, animals, and also the environment. So they basically make sure a product is safe to protect animals by harming animals Another reason that products are tested is so that companies do not send out a product into the public that is har... ... middle of paper ... ...to animal testing can sometimes be more expensive but it can sometimes be cheaper.

Not anymore, say goodbye to animal experimentation! Every day, more and more people realize the harm these animals are bearing and also believe it is time to put this inhumane act to an end! This cruel action will soon be overthrown by educating the public on this poor act along with scientists creating even more alternatives to animal testing. Every year, over one-hundred million animals are killed in American laboratories due to biology lessons, medical training, curiosity-drive... ... middle of paper ... ...14.

Animals should be used for research and Experimentation because if the animals get sick or show any signs of acting abnormal then the scientists know it isn’t safe for humans to use. Animal research has played a big role in nearly every medical breakthrough over the last decade. Animals have the same organ system that perform the same task, which helps determine if what is being tested is safe for humans to use. Most of the medicines animals use the same medicine as humans like antibiotics, pain killers, and many more this helps to see if the medicine cures the animals without any harmful consequences then it would be safe and useful for humans to use. Using animals for research and experimentation has led to cancer survival rates to continue to rise.
The concept of natural rights for animals would jeopardize all medical research. Animals in the laboratory are mostly used for biomedical research, education and product safety testing. Saraf and Kumarawamy note that almost every medical achievement in this century depended on the use of animals in some way (6). Animal experiments have provided the knowledge necessary to comprehend and develop more effective treatments, but “the opposition to use animals for research purpose has always existed” (Saraf and Kurmarawamy 8). Rabbits were used in the early 1920s as a pregnancy test, because high levels of hCG if injected into a female rabbit caused death, this experiment contributed to the development of the at home pregnancy tests that ar... ... middle of paper ... ...ss normal behavior, Freedom from fear and distress.
