Are there benefits of animal testing for medical research?

  • It may not be morally right, but there are benefits

    Unfortunately, there are not many other ways to test the effects of new drugs and other consumer products except animal testing. It's not fair to the animals, but unless there are people willing to undergo the testing, we can't compile data on any harmful side effects. Researchers have found animals who are similar to humans and have had some success in performing tests on them. They have been able to find new antibiotics and other drugs that work for humans because of tests on animals.

  • I believe that there are benefits of animal testing for medical research.

    I believe that there are benefits of animal testing for
    medical research. Every single animal
    tested saves human lives and saves corporations millions of dollars. Could you imagine what would happen if a
    company spent millions of dollars to produce a drug and then found out that it didn’t
    work later? This is why it is so
    important to test drugs on animals first.

  • There are benefits of animal testing for medical research.

    Naturally, there are benefits to testing animals for medical researching. It is necessary for humans to take advantage of animals for our own welfare. If we can save human lives, it can be ethical to use animals for testing. Most humans would admit that human life is more important than that of animals.

  • Yes, there are benefits of animal testing.

    Animal testing can be very beneficial for medical research. There are many times when human subjects are not available for testing with a certain product or experiment. This is where animals are often substituted to further the medical research as needed. This research can in turn save people from life threatening illnesses.

  • Animal testing is a must

    Our medical infrastructure is very much relient on animal testing, and this needs to continue. Without animal testing, we would have to test on humans, which would be inhumane and horrific. So animal testing is simply necessary for our health. It may not be pretty, but it simply the reality of the situation.

  • Tests upon animals are CRUEL AND NEED TO BE STOPPED.

    We humans are an intelligent species, and have already developed technology to limit; if not eradicate, animal testing. For example, we already have artificial human cells that act just like the real thing, not to mention the countless volunteers who would like to be tested themselves and we can utilize computer graphics for examples of what would happen if we put this in a human. Not to mention the PAIN and SUFFERING animals go through on their part.

  • Dissecting Animals: The Real Truth

    Animals are beautiful creatures that don't deserve to be killed. It's time that we BAN this right and animals should not be killed because of that. IT'S TIME TO END THIS STUFF NOW OR ELSE YOU'LL GET THE BEST OF THE ANIMAL SOCIETY!! DO NOT KILL, LET THEM LIVE NOW! This is Destiny and I 'speak for the animals'.
    Even AN ELEPHANT has been dissected. A POOR INNOCENT ELEPHANT! Do you want an elephant to kill YOU? Stop all this CRAZY SHENANIGANS! It's fine if the animal is dead, but cut it ALIVE? NOW I know why lions sometimes want to kill you I'm not even in MIDDLE SCHOOL and I know how DISGUSTINGLY DISGUSTING it is! And you'd probably think why a 5th grader wants to talk about it!
    Thank you for making me read this article.

  • Why not test on Humans?

    If you charge a considerable amount of money to any person, he\ she might agree on being tested on. The best way to find cures for humans, is to test on humans. Plus, since humans are volunteering to be tested on, they will be treated a lot better. Plus, no animals will have to be tortured.

  • There are no benefits to this research.

    Animals are sentient, living beings that feel pain just as humans do. Animal testing is a very inhumane process that takes place all around the world, anytime, anywhere. I have also read articles about animals being severely abused and tortured just in the name of a human life. It is also very wasteful. These experiments prolong the suffering of other human beings waiting for an effective cure by misleading experiments and squandering amounts of money just for them. As the more intelligent life, humans are supposed to show justice and care . Instead, we bring in all this havoc and cruelty to all Earth's innocence, except for ourselves. All of this just for our selfish interests and vanity. It was also said that most animal testings don't accurately represent the human body's lifestyle. So most testings don't actually have positive impact on humans. It is unethical to sentence 100 million thinking, feeling animals to a life spent in a laboratory where they are to be brutally shocked, poisoned, and killed all in the name of humans. PETA says that 92 out of 100 drugs that pass animal test fail in humans. And I'm very sure that this vain world can live without the eyeliner, soap, food ingredient, or pesticide that much in the expense of an animals life. Some scientists have already developed a system that doesn't involve these inhumane processes and human based. These modern systems are cheaper, faster, and surely much more accurate. I highly discourage the use of animals (dead or alive) in these horrible experiments.

  • There are no benefits of animal testing for medical research.

    There are no benefits of animal testing for medical research. Most of the testing that we do to animals is for the cosmetic industry. I think it is wrong to test animals and treat them more like an object. Testing of animals should not be done because in the medical field they should have the technology to not have to do this.

  • There aren't many.

    There are very few new animal research studies that are actually beneficial to humans. Many animals have vastly different bodies than humans do and things that work on them won't necessarily work on humans. A lot of studies are just repeated over and over when we already have the data. There are other ways that we can do medical testing.

  • No medical test on animals

    Lots of animals in this world so why kill them or put them in bad condition. You should just use barbie hair things animals are very important to this world the could be gone for ever and never see beautiful animals again why do medical test on animals what a bad thing to do
