Transcript of Animal Testing

Animal Experimentation Three R’s Although animal testing has been valuable and proved to be necessary in previous decades, animal experimentation of all types should be gradually eliminated through alternative means as we have reached a point in science, where to test animals is inhumane; we can do research and solve problems alternatively.

Faster, and
More accurate in foreseeing a human reaction. As research and alternatives have been developed, science and society are ready to move away from animal testing Replace the use of animals
Alternative: Human vertebrae, cells, tissues Replacement Less pain
Less Distress
Improvmment Well Being Refinement Fewer Animals
Maximum amount of information Reduction Studying Human Population
In Vitro
Computer-modeling Techniques Effective Alternative Options Less time strenuous
Cost is significantly less
Prevents running into problems with species differences Benefits of NOT Animal Testing The Public’s Tax Dollars and Charity Programs
