The application of animals to test a large number of products from household compounds, cosmetics, and Pharmaceutical products has been considered to be a normal strategy for many years. Laboratory animals are generally used in three primary fields: biomedical research, product security evaluation and education (Animal Experiments). It has been estimated that approximately. Also 20 million animals are being used for testing and are killed annually; about 15 million of them are used to test for medication and five million for other products. Reports have been generated to indicate that about 10 percent of these animals are not being administered with painkillers. The supporters of animal rights are pressuring government agencies to inflict severe regulations on animal research. However, such emerging criticisms of painful experimentation on animals are coupled with an increasing concern over the cost it would have on the limitation of scientific progress (Of Cures and Creatures Great and Small).
Around the world, animals are utilized to test products ranging from shampoo to new cancer drugs. Each and every medication used by humans is first tested on the animals. Animals were also used to develop anesthetics to ease human ailments and suffering during surgery (Animal Experiments). Currently, questions have been raised about the ethics that surround animal testing. As a result, several regulations have been put in place to evaluate and control the animals being used for testing purposes. These regulations hope to ensure that such research is carried out in a humanely and ethical manner (Testing on Animals: A Patients’ Perspective). Acceptance of such experimentations is subject to a lot of argumentation. As the statistics indicate animal testing is dangerous and harmful, but medical research must continue until other testing techniques are found.
If animal testing is eliminated, many of the medications and procedures that we currently use today...
