All over the world animals are being tested on products such as Febreze without even knowing it. Animal testings are used for many studies. The human organ system, and the body structure is similar to that of animals. Researchers study animals to understand how the human body processes different drugs and chemicals such as that of the animal. Animals help with the study of several illnesses such as cancer, and heart diseases. Many companies test on animals, some of these companies include Clorox, and Febreze. There are many animals such as rats, rabbits, cats, dogs, and monkeys in labs that get experimented on. Experimenting on animals is wrong, and should be stopped because they feel pain when being experimented on, human beings and animals …show more content…
Animals are experimented on products such as pesticides, clorox, dish soap, drugs, and by the departments of transportation even chemicals for transports are tested on them. They are kept in cages where they are treated, and fed, so that then they are able to get tested on, while animals are healthy it can give more accurate to scientists. Animals want to be free, but in these cages they suffer. When animals are kept for a large amount of time in cages, they tend to become stressed, and start biting on their own flesh, and they pull out their own fur do to side effects of the experimentation, or experiences they might have had while getting experimented on, and waiting in cages. Once scientists have conducted their experiments, and then they are killed. Animals should get released back into the wild if the results were harmless, and if they would not affect anyone else, or another living creature. The cosmetics that are being experimented on the animal can be deadly, and the animals will suffer, and end up dying. No animal should ever face being genetically engineered to develop cancer, as mice are; being intentionally paralysed from brain damage, as monkeys are; or being force-fed pesticides and other chemicals, as dogs are. (Curie 2012) Damage is being done to animals, and these cancer cells are being engineered, so that they are experimented on …show more content…
With theses methods the results are able to have a better accuracy. While using animals as experimentations to be tested on a products that was created for human needs specifically, they are testing different types of species. Computers, human tissue, and cell structures have more accuracy, and focus on the “clinical and epidemiological” study showing how they work as a human disease develops in a body. These new developments also help with the testings of cosmetics, or products that are being created. Some people might say that testing on humans is not an option, so they test on animals instead, however research shows that before a product is released for sale it is tested on a human. There are micro brains that scientists have developed that can also be used for the purpose to retrieve results. “The organs have potential to help model neural problems in their earliest form to test the safety of drugs” (Verger 2013). The micro brains are used to test on drugs meaning it’s another way to test if certain drugs are safe, they test drugs such as tobacco, and vaccines on animals which can be prevented if they use micro brains more often. Human tissue, once developed and integrated, researchers can use these models to predict whether a candidate drug, vaccine or biologic agent is safe or toxic in humans in a faster and more cost-effective way than current methods.
