Animal TestingMore and more animals are being taken form their natural habitats and tested on every year. Researchers, scientists, and companies just trying to make new products are using animals to further their experiments. If animal testing continues to happen at this rate then their will be no animals left to use for food, study, or even for simple amusement.
When the animals are being taken form their natural environments it harms the natural food chain and other ways of life. When people abusing the animals rights they make the animals suffer and decrease their overall population. Many people are trying to find ways to end this hurting of nature. Some people find different ways like using computer simulations and other new sources. Many animals are dying everyday from humans testing on them.
These animals have been tested on for research, drug use, and to test company products. Testing on animals leads to more diseases occurring. There are many groups assembling to stop the scientists and researchers from hurting the animals. Some people try and argue the reasons for why animals are being abused. Some say that it is for science and to expand our knowledge. There are many new forms of diseases being found everyday.
A major cause of these new diseases is testing on animals. Many scientists and researchers find that new forms of diseases or showing up from exposing new substances to animals. (Hart, Snyder pg#1+) Research at the Barrow Neurological institute in Phoenix has shown that injecting cancer cells into beagle puppys brains has caused a new, different form of cancer. (Hart, Snyder pg#1+)Another way diseases are spreading is the fact that people in Korea are eating dogs and passing different diseases between spaces. Many people that are not testing on live animals are contracting diseases too.
(Texley pg#1+) Some students in an Alabama school caught a slightly different case of the flu from dissecting dead frogs in biology class. Many groups have been formed to stop animals from being abused and tested on for selfish reasons. Animals are being tortured and killed for some companies to test their products. (Motavalli pg#3+) Many people in there groups are going to law schools in America that offer animal rights law. Animal rights are now being taught in twenty five to thirty schools now a.
(Hart, Snyder pg#1+) The worlds first humane society for animals was founded in London in 1824. (Hart, Snyder pg#1+) Many members of People for Ethical Treatment of Animals or PETA point out that chimpanzees share 98% of DNA with humans, but people still test on them. (Morrison pg#20+) Every $100 expended for health cost, only 40 cents goes to stopping lab testing. (Morrison pg#20+) 470 to 7,000 organizations share the world wide view that testing on animals is wrong.
Many people believe that testing on animals for the sake of science and furthering our knowledge is ok. This is one of the main reason animals are being tested on. (Motavalli pg#26+) Some scientists try and prove that animals have no desires, memories, expectations, or even souls. A few even say that science they have no should they cannot think nor feel pain. (Balcombe pg#8+) Many people test on animals to see the side effects of new drugs and other substances.
( Texley pg#1+) The national Science teachers association or NSTA found that new teachers had to be brought in to teach biology now a days because old teachers were not capable with teaching dissection. Even though some researchers say that testing on animals is for the good of science, its still not saving any lives. The animal testing has led to more diseases, groups tying to fight it, and groups supporting it. In the end its a lot of controversy that doesnt need to happen. If people stop testing on animals then their will be much le animals abuse in the world. Is the safety of animals more valuable then furthering science? You decide.
Testing on animals is not only a waste of animal life its hurting the plant life and the rest of nature too. Natural Resources are being destroyed from decreasing the population of animals. For example if usually bees pollinate flowers and make honey start getting tested
