Transcript of The Pros and Cons of using animals for medical testing

Discussion Question Do you think that medical and cosmetic products should be tested
on animals or the people
they are made for? Affirmative Negative
One reason that people are for animal testing is because using animals that have a similar DNA code to humans can be used as an early warning system if the drug has side effects. Many of the animals that are experimented on
die of poisoning that is caused by all of the different cosmetics tested on them.

My Opinion My opinion is that using animals for medical testing is ridiculous and costly. I believe that using people as cosmetics test subjects is the only way that safety can be ensured to others whom wish to by said product. Work Cited Affirmative Pros to Medical Testing on Animals http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLqiZkIIdGU&feature=related www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_g_tuOudeI&feature=related By: David Owens Affirmative Researchers have found drugs and treatments that can improve the health of humans. The decrease in human deaths due to cardiovascular diseases is because of the knowledge gained out of animal testing and research.

Negative Another con for medical testing on animals is the cost. Medical testing on animals drains the Government of money. The Government has to spend money buying the animals used in the tests. The amount of animals killed each year by research is 19.5 million.
Before penicillin was introduced to the medical world, it was first tested on mice in 1940 to check for potential side effects. The scientific community has wasted over $20 million taxpayer dollars exposing animals to drugs for a variety of arbitrary and pointless tests.
