heath and longevity
develop many life-saving
determine the toxicity of medications
check the safety of products destined for human use
prevent the mistreatment/defect
There is no adequate alternative
to testing on a living, whole-body system
Animals are appropriate research subjects because they are similar to human beings in many ways
it's not that cruel
with laws in place to protect animals from mistreatment
researchers treat humanely,
both for the animals' sake
and to ensure reliable test results
Relatively few are used in research, which is a small price to pay for advancing medical progress
(eating in daily lifes does kill more animals).
Animals themselves benefit from the results
cruel and inhumane
Religious traditions tell us to be merciful to animals
there are alternatives
Animal tests may mislead researchers into ignoring potential cures and treatments.
Medical breakthroughs involving animal research may still have been made without the use of animals
Alternative testing methods now exist
that can replace the need for animals
drawbacks of animal tests
Drugs that pass animal tests are not necessarily safe.
not reliably predict results in human beings.
Animals are very different from human beings and therefore make poor test subjects
humans are not entitle to subject animals to trauma
Animal testing = animal experimentation = scientific testing = the use of animals in medical research
provide benefits to animals
that normally would have not received them.
medical care / treatment for injuries
supervised by zookeepers for emergency
chance to survive, especially those on the endangered list - conservation purpose
protect from poachers hunting for their skins, bones
and research opportunities
more interesting way to study about nature and science than studying through lessons in class
real experience and fun adventure about wide animal and habitat
easier to do research about breeding cycle or behavioral ecology
protect endangered species
help maintain healthy and self-sustaining populations
bring animals back from the brink of extinction
Zoos pose several risks that particularly affect animals.
Animals are captured and placed in captivity for the sole purpose of human amusement
Zoos exhibits animals with the aim of making money, not conservation
Natural animal behaviors are changed.
change migratory nature
huntinginstinct (lion, tiger)
They best way to save endangered species is by protecting natural habitats
rather than spend tons of money to build up zoos and artificial habitat
Potential Health Benefits
better weight control
A healthy diet is possible without eating meat
reduce the risk of serious or chronic disease like cancer
lower cholesterol, and blood pressure, aiding in the prevention of heart disease.
for moral reasons
unnecessary cruel and unethical to kill animal for food
Raising animals for food contributes to air and water pollution
question the treatment of animals in factory farms
False Assumption of
Automatic Health Benefits
Easy to have Unbalanced diet
Possible Nutrient Deficiencies
some nutrients have only in meat
argue of meat eater
Farms nowadays can produce organic food which is safe for health
Eating meat is not cruel or unethical; it is a natural part of the cycle of life.
vegetarians: take supplements to get all the essential vitamins and minerals that do not have in vegetables
