Good morning class! I’m the 2nd speaker of the affirmative team.
The 1st point that I’m going to discuss is the animals that are being used in experiment.
Animal experimentation involves more than 27 different species including: macaque monkeys, squirrel monkey, rats, mice, dogs, hamster, guinea pigs, and cats. Domestic Ferrets are used in many broad areas of research and have been since the early 1900s to study the pathogenesis and treatment in a variety of human disease as animal models in biomedical research, including studies of cardiovascular disease, nutrition, respiratory diseases (such as SARS and human influenza), air physiology, cystic fibrosis and gastrointestinal disease (such as peptic ulcers). Ferrets share many anatomical, metabolic and physiologic features with humans which has promoted their use as an animal model.
Additionally, lab tests are commonly performed on mice. In fact, breeders can create called “knockout mice”. The term knockout refers to the fact that these mice are genetically modified so that the particular gene expressions are repressed, or turned off. There are many varieties of knockout mice available depending on what is being investigated. There mice are very useful in the biomedical field. By using knockout mice, researchers are able to learn about the specific effects on certain genes and drug therapies can also be tested on these mice.
The 2nd point that I’m going to discuss is the products that are being tested to animals.
There are so many day-to-day personal hygiene and household products are tested on animals. Such as deodorants, toothpaste, insect repellents, household cleaners, pesticides, and many products used in industry. These products are inconvenient to lose because it’s our part of our daily life. If we don’t use soaps for our daily shower, we’ll be stink. If we don’t use toothpaste for our daily toothbrush, we’ll have a bad breath. You know what I’m sayin’?
My 3rd and final point is that we...
