Animal Testing - For centuries now, the principles of anatomy and physiology have been proved to be true in many cases for humans as well as for animals. For such reasons scientists have decided to rely on animals to understand and study, diseases or conditions found in humans and so forth. Therefor, is it possible to call ourselves selfish. Could the fact that we exploit animals for the so called sake of science prove that we do not consider the animals’ well-being. As a result of being under-informed about the procedures of animal testing, people often take this demographic issue lightly....   [tags: Animal Rights] 1014 words

Animal Testing - So the next big question is, isn’t animal testing essential. Doesn’t it cure disease and save human lives. Well the answer is no. Animal testing is unreliable, expensive, time consuming, and most of all it’s not necessary. Animals are not good models for humans. They are allergic to certain basic compounds that are fine for humans, like Paracetamol (“used to treat many conditions such as headache, muscle aches, arthritis, backache, toothaches, colds, fevers, and relieves pain in mild arthritis” (Paracetamol), and vice versa....   [tags: animal rights, research, ethics]

Animal Testing - Animal research and testing has always been a controversy torn between science and ethics. Much can be gleaned of research if we set our morals aside, however Mukherjee states, “When I witness science in action, I see tenderness in abundance.” This tenderness is explored in Hale and Zimmerman’s texts; both come to the fundamental conclusion that it is our moral obligation as both scientists and humans to keep the principle of ‘replace, reduce, and refine’ at the heart of animal research.

Animal Research and Testing, Is it Ethical? - vivisection Animal Research and Testing, Is it Ethical. “It is a simple fact that many, if not most, of today’s modern medical miracles would not exist if experimental animals had not been available to medical scientists. It is equally a fact that, should we as a society decide the use of animal subjects is ethically unacceptable and therefore must be stopped, medical progress will slow to a snail’s pace. Such retardation will in itself have a huge ethical ‘price tag’ in terms of continued human and animal suffering from problems such as diabetes, cancer, degenerative cardiovascular diseases, and so forth.” Dr....   [tags: essays papers]
