Should scientists be allowed to test products intended for human use on animals?
Transcript of Should scientists be allowed to test products intended for human use on animals?
The animal tests are used only when there is no alternatives and they are necessary because it allows great advances in the medicine that would not be possible without his use and also permits prevent failures in products that could do much damage to us.
Testing products on animals has been debated for long time.
The companies argue that animal testing are good for consumers and the defenders of animal rights argue that animal testing is cruel.
Medicines for human diseases
Another advantage of animal testing is that determine if some products are safe for humans.
Products must be tested on animals before to prevent injury to a person or his death.
If these are considered dangerous for animals, they are not safe for humans.
Safety of products
Another disadvantage is its high cost and the animals can be tested more than once over the course of months, making even higher the cost.
Is also thought that animal experiments can be unreliable because they can react differently to certain drugs for humans.
Mostly it is due to stress because they are not in their natural environment.
The animals can be injured or hurt
Cost and Reliability
It allows scientists to discover medications and treatments for human diseases.
For example, cancer patients and HIV would lack of many treatment options if there were no animal testing, so they are important in improving the health of humans and prolong its life.
An important against animal testing is that many animals can be injured or killed when testing human medicines or products.
Many of these animals are tested for substances that actually never be approved for human use.
