Animal Testing - Is it right to take the life of an innocent animal. Animals have been burnt, crushed, sliced, electrocuted, tortured with drugs, poisoned with toxic chemicals, and tormented in psychological testing. They do all these test just to make money or find if a chemical is safe for humans. Is this right. Lab experimentation involving animals is inhumane. Animal testing is cruel because an animal s life is just as important as a human s life, people are exploiting animals, and animal testing doesn’t t show whether or not a product is safe for humans....   [tags: Animal Testing] 418 words

Standardized Testing - Standardized Testing The truth is, white students continuously outperform black or Hispanic students in terms of proficiency test scores in every subject. For years, people have been trying to change this. Some blame the tests as being unfair and discriminatory, and seek to have them abolished. Perhaps the fault doesn’t lie in the tests and the discrepancy in scores lies elsewhere in the public education system. What the opponents of standardized testing need to understand is that this type of assessment is essential in having a public school system....   [tags: Standardized Testing Essays]

Genetic Testing - Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the building block of life. The backbone of DNA is composed of four different bases: thymine (T), guanine (G), adenine (A), and cytosine (C). Each base is then attached to a phosphate group and a sugar, forming a single nucleotide. Genetic information is encoded by the sequence of nucleotides in the strand; therefore, the quantity and sequence of nucleotides in a strand of DNA differs depending upon the organism. Each base’s chemistry renders it specifically complementary with one other base (A-T and C-G)....   [tags: DNA, Mutations, Genetic Testing] 1067 words

Animal Testing Should be Reduced - The common belief is that animal testing has accelerated science and medicine a great deal, but the truth is simple: animal experimentation has not cured a single disease. People have been misled into believing that animal experimentation is responsible for many “miracle cures” and “medical breakthroughs” for decades. The reason is very straightforward: animals differ from humans greatly—too much to be able to have accurate results from experiments. The only progress with infectious disease made in the 20th century was made through improved nutrition, hygiene, and public sanitation....   [tags: Animal Testing] 737 words

The Irrelevance of Animal Testing - The Irrelevance of Animal Testing The practice of animal experimentation began when religious leaders condemned the dissection of human corpses. Human experimentation and dissection is not opposed anymore but animal experimentation still continues. Almost all new products, from drugs to cosmetic products go through an animal experimentation phase, but they are not required to. Though it may seem to be a good option as opposed to human experimentation, it is not. Animal experimentation uses billions of taxpayer dollars every year, hardly has any scientific relevance, and animal experimentation causes a huge deal of pain, suffering and death to animals....   [tags: Animal Testing] 550 words

The Problems with Standardized Testing - The Problems with Standardized Testing Most Americans take standardized mental tests as a rite of passage from the day they enter kindergarten. Gatekeepers of America’s meritocracy—educators, academic institutions, and employers—have used test scores to label people as bright or not gifted, as worthy academically or not worthy enough to hold a mop. Indeed, not only is it a stigma, but one largely unrecognized in our culture.

Random Drug Testing is Wrong - Drug testing is a very controversial issue in today society.

I believe that it is an infringement of a person’s right to be tested of drugs just out of the blue and without just cause. I also believe that a person should be tested if they injure themselves or cause an injury to someone else on the job because then the employer is not held accountable or responsible for the damage that the worker might have caused (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, FEB 12, 1995 pA1)....   [tags: Pre-Employment Drug Testing] 586 words
