I feel that every life created by god is equal. Experiment animals are the protective walls of human beings’ health. They are cut open, poisoned and then caged in for weeks, months or even years. Some animals are often given diseases to see whether a new drug will work or whether it has side effects. Some animals are killed by researchers in order to see the degree of damage inside their bodies. This is not moral.
More than 100 million animals die each year in medical experiments. (1) However, the exact number of animals killed in the research every year is unknown, for researchers or governments never care about these dead, not to mention counting the numbers. A few of the government agencies that subject animals to painful and crude tests are the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, the National Toxicology Program, and the Department of Agriculture.(1) But why don’t governments do something about this? The answer is simple: money. From animal breeders to companies, from companies to researchers, from researchers to governments, from governments to companies, animals used in experiments have already become an industry wearing a shining golden coat. Each player benefits a lot.
The most common misconception of animal testing is that it is necessary for the development of cures, vaccines and other treatments for human illnesses. In my opinion animal testing and research is completely based on false grounds, the results that are obtained from such experimentation cannot be applied to the human body when they are not done to the human body. You hear on the news all the time, animal researchers telling about the success of cures and treatments for different illnesses that have only been found through animal testing. They believe that if animal experimentation is stopped, then it will be at the expense of life and human health.
Take cancer for example. Animal research has not aided in the least bit when it comes to warding off...
