Animal Testing Should Be Banned
There are other methods of seeing if specific products are OK for human use.
Researchers have developed sophisticated computer models that simulate human biology. These models can be used instead of animal testing to predict how drugs will work.
Organs on Chips
Harvard’s Wyss Institute made “organs-on-chips” that contain human cells that mimic the structure of human organs. These chips can be used instead of animal testing to research diseases and drug testing.
This method is better than animal testing because it is very low cost compared to animal testing.
This method is also better because it is easy to use and its portable (the size of 1coin)
These chips represent the human body very well, so the amount of times in which they work is a lot hşgher that the amount of times that animal testing has worked.
Animal testing is expensive
The U.S spends 16 billion dollars on animals testing per year
Show how to look for it
Animal testing is inadaptable to humans
95% of drugs which pass animal testing don't work or are too dangerous for humans.
Hundreds of people die from drugs that work on animals
Animal testing is cruel and unethical
Animals are caused pain and fear
Animals can be burned, shocked, poisoned, isolated, starved, drowned, addicted to drugs, and brain-damaged when animal testing.
At the end of the test animals are usually killed
More than 100 million animals killed a year only in the U.S
These animals consist of mice, rats, frogs dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, monkeys, and more.
Almost all of us use products that aren't cruelty free and test their products on animals.
Companies such as Dove, head and shoulders, pedigree, Victorias secret, l'oreal, OPI, NARS, maybelline, MAC, Lancome, Benefit Cosmetics, and many more test on animals
What is animal testing?
Animal testing is a process in which animals are used to be tested on to develop new products. When being tested on, animals can be shocked, poisoned, isolated, and starved. (My own definition)
