Nearly every major medical advancement in the 20th century involved animal testing. Included in those evolutions are antibiotics, vaccines, and treatments for diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, and cancer. We could not save lives without these medicines and they have to be tested before they are released.
The numbers of animals that are used for testing each year are between 17-22 million. 61% of the animals used for testing feel no pain. 31% of research animals have their pain relieved by anesthesia. 6% of them experience pain as part of the research in the understanding of medication. For every one dog or cat used for research there are fifty destroyed by dog pounds.
"Sara" is a little girl. Her mother has cancer, and she will die soon. there is a scientist who thinks he has the cure for cancer. He can do one of three things. He can either a) give it to the mother and risk the chance of the medicine killing her or severely hurting her. b) test it on some animals and see if there are any side effects. c) throw it away and forget it. ---which one seems like the most intelligent answer?
It is better to kill a hundred rats to save millions of lives.
According to http://altweb.jhsph.edu...... Without animal testing, we might have never found the cure for polio, and insulin for diabetic people. there are also many other cures that we have found from animal testing. we are currently animal testing to find the cure for HIV/AIDS.
There are also strict rules and guidelines that the scientists have to follow in order to take care of their lab animals, according to

"Twenty-five years ago, a young lady who gets diagnosed with breast cancer has just gotten a death sentence, and now, she may get cured. We have made such great strides and progress," McKellips said.
While few would argue against the pursuit of treatments for life-threatening diseases, there are many who are opposed to the methods that involve the use of animals, McKellips said.
"The public is clamoring for new medicines, but we don't want to talk about how we get there," McKellips said, pointing out that animal research studies are required for a drug to get FDA approval.
U.S. public polls revealed that public support of animal research has dropped from 64 percent in 2004 to 50 percent in 2010, McKellips said. In response, the foundation is seeking ways to draw attention to the issue of animal research.
Most people think that testing cosmetics on animals is a bad thing to do. But what they don't know is that when the animals are in the labs the scientists make their stay as best as possible. For example with chimps they give them ropes and things to climb and with the dogs they have people that play with them and the dogs can visit other dogs and they have people that walk the dogs.
Animal testing can help save peoples lives. Without it we don't know if a product is safe to use or not. They only way to tell would be to test them on ourselves. For example if scientists test a new drug that they think will cure a disease or sickness they can test it on an animal to see if their theory is right and if so they can use it on humans who have that sickness or disease. People will be able to use these new drugs to help them with their illness and even save some of their lives.
Even though there is no law saying that you have to test cosmetics on animals before you sell your product that would be very dangerous for humans. Imagine waking up in the morning and you put on your favorite eye shadow or you brush your teeth and then you have to pay for it by going blind or getting a type of cancer.
