First of all, from a moral perspective, animal experimentation is so cruel that it should be stopped. In order to access interests, people keep ignoring the miserable situation of laboratorial animals. It is necessary for us to know the truth. Animals are routinely cut open, poisoned, and forced to live in barren steel cages for years. As far as I know, much of the experimentations include pumping chemicals into rats' stomachs, hacking muscle tissue from dogs' legs.
Each year in the United States, an estimated 70 million animals were blinded, scalded, force-fed chemicals, genetically manipulated, and otherwise hurt and killed in the name of science. Substances that are used everyday, such as lipstick, soap, moisturisers and shower gels, may be tested on rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, dogs, cats, and other animals. These tests are mainly used to test the degree of harmfulness of products and their ingredients. No antidotes are ever given, so the animals that are injured must live with the pain. These tests are not required by law, so why would companies continue to torture peaceful animals?
Ever since that people realized animals had feelings and could feel pain, people have started debating over the issue of animal testing, and it soon became a highly controversial topic. There are three reasons why animals should be used in research. The first and most reason is using animal in testing can keep species diversity. The world today is missing many animals. Many are endangered or extinct.
Biology Issue Report Subject: Are the results of animal testing in the cosmetics industry relevant and applicable to humans? The testing of cosmetics on animals has been banned in the EU since 2009; however other countries around the world (such as the USA) still use animals in these tests. In an attempt to predict safety and effectiveness of cosmetics and toiletries, regulators in countries like America require companies to prove that their products are safe and harmless towards human beings. The cosmetics companies are required to conduct these experiments - they do not simply test on animals because they want to. Many thousands of animals (such as rabbits, mice, rats and guinea pigs) are used every year in the tests, but how reliable and applicable are the results to humans?
Various dangerous diseases such as herpes simplex, hepatitis B, polio, rabies, malaria and mumps have been treated due to medications developed from tests on animals (Pandey, 2010). Animals are living creatures that develop various diseases as well. If, as the animal rights groups say, the medical problems of humans should be studied on people, then it seems that the problems of animals should be researched on animals. However, in reading animal rights campaigns, there is a lack of discussion on how to do research on the medical needs of animals (Gershoff, 2009). D. I will be talking to you
When animals are used for labatory research or toxic testing, they are encountered to painful and often deadly experiments. Products or substances being tested are frequently placed in the eyes of an animal. Even though people do monitor the animal for damage, intense pain is caused for the animal. Blindness, scarring and death are generally the results at the end.
Consequently, there are many animals who are put in danger, poisoned and trapped with trash being littered and invading their habitats. Many animals suffer from trash being improperly disposed. Too many animals are becoming sick, injured, and most just simply dying, and this is all caused by the amount of trash being littered daily. A lot of people do not aware of how their littering habits affect these animals, and sometimes they just do not care. Littering items such as; six pack soda, bottle rings, and plastic in general harms, affects, and takes the lives away from these innocent animals.
Using animals for cosmetics testing experiments are commonly practiced to measure the levels of skin irritancy, eye tissue damage, and toxicity caused by various substances used in the manufacture of cosmetics. For example, some hair products like shampoo, caustic substances are placed in the eyes of conscious rabbits to evaluate damage to sensitive eye tissues. This is absolutely a torture for the rabbits, since they scream when being applied the substances and sometimes break their necks or backs trying to escape the restraints. It is never a humane treatment to the animals, and be tolerable to use them for the sake of aesthetics. In fact, there are alternatives to cosmetics testing on animals, for instance, using synthetic skin called
In my eyes this method is unreliable and inefficient. My Opinion is that animals’ being tested on is inhumane as these innocent animals are locked in cages and are only taken out if they are dead or being experimented. My second point on why animal cruelty is about dog fighting. Statistics say that there are over 50, 000 dog fighting operations happening around
