irritation. These experiments do not improve nor help people in anyways. Moreover, some people do not seem to care about the animals and are still testing cosmetic products. Although the laws require no animal testing on cosmetics or household products, some government laboratories in New York poison a lot of various animals using new versions of deodorants, hair sprays, lipsticks, nail polishes, and a lot of other products.Almost twenty million animals were being experimented by scientists. These numbers are not accurate, but it tells us how many animals the laboratories have killed. Rabbits and guinea pigs are the most popular animals that laboratories use. During these experiments, animals

Animal Testing In Medical Research Should Be Illegal
Animals are being killed every day due to research in cosmetics, medicine, and other human products. Drugs we get from animal testing are extremely dangerous to both animals and humans. Creatures used in medical labs get treated poorly. What happens to animals after they are done with their research? There are other options, which are more successful in testing medicines, than killing animals to research medicine. God didn’t create all these animals just so we could kill them and destroy their homes.

Animal Testing should be banned!
Most of you probably might not realise, but each year more than 100 million animals are dying in US laboratories for biology lessons, medication testing and cosmetics testing. Today I will be discussing about why animal testing must be banned worldwide. I will explain to you how animals are different to humans, which makes them poor test subjects as well, as how animals can suffer as humans do and it is classified as speciesism. I will also mention that animal testing is wasting the lives of the animal subjects. How would you feel if the cosmetics you wear on a day-to-day basis caused the death of innocent little rabbits? Alternatively, the very cleaning

Animal Testing for or Against it ?
Animals are so belittled that they are harmed or killed for human benefits, like cosmetics testing or just for scientific curiosity. Animal testing has helped find cures for small diseases but the pain and suffering of these animals are what we tend to ignore. "Traditional animal testing are expensive, time-consuming uses a lot of animals and from a scientific perspective the results do not necessarily translate to humans"(Dr.Christopher P.Austin). The majority of our scientific research has been done and discovered by the use of animal testing. This was done a long time ago when we did not

Dr. Richard Klauser, former director of the National Cancer Institute, said, “The history of cancer research has been a history of curing cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for decades, and it simply didn’t work on humans.” It has become evident that the medical testing on animals has not been proven to work on humans.Although many people believe that it is okay to use animals for medical testings, it is unethical.
Those who support Animal testing say that “research involving animals has helped identify the causes of high blood pressure and develop more effective drugs to control the problem” (“What benefits have come…”). Research using animals has helped get

Beowulf v. Grendel
The battle between Beowulf and Grendel has taken an epic role in this poem. The Great Beowulf who is admired for his exceptionally big courage. This brawl has shown how situations can take a major turn of events, throughout this event a couple of Beowulf’s men begin attacking Grendel, very few succeed. As Grendel becomes more anxious he begins to feel very threatened, with this taking place this is where you begin to see Grendel’s weaknesses and Beowulf’s dominant, brave, and heroic characteristics.

Every day, millions and millions of mice, dogs, cats, rabbits, die as a result of animal testing. Testing on animals should be eliminated for various reasons. The first and main reason is that animal testing is cruel. The second reason is that there is no real advantage to animal testing because they are not homologous to humans. The third and last reason is that there are other methods widely available that do not involve cruel treatment to animals.
As a result, animal testing is

Animal testing is a necessity in society. This topic has received a lot of attention lately, especially with PETA supporting the euthanizing of animals when they are 100 percent healthy. Many people think to risk an animal's wellbeing is cruel and inhumane. Today, solutions to stop animal testing cannot be found, until a new discovery of non-animal testing is approved.
Animal testing is many products that we use daily and do not think twice about it. Household chemicals and cosmetics to Pharmaceuticals products that animals are used for many years. Lab animals are used in three categories, which are biomedical research, product evaluation and sadly for education.

Animal testing for medical and cosmetic research has many benefits to it. When animals are tested on they are used for the good of making sure that medicines and cosmetics are not harmful to the human consumers. These animals that are being tested on are also benefiting many animals that need cures for diseases. Most of the earth’s total population would be half including both animals and humans because the lab animals would not have been used and diseases would not have been cured.
If animals were not tested on these diseases would not have vaccines and treatments to stop them. If animals were not tested on for medical

animals can directly hurt humans, animal testing is cruel and inhuman for us to

Seeing Double: Why Cloning Breaks Ethical Boundaries
Dolly, born on July 5th, 1996 was the first ever cloned mammal. Dolly’s first years of life as a normal sheep were great. In her later years, the drawbacks from the cloning started to appear. These drawbacks eventually caused her suffer until she died at half the age of an expected sheep. Cloning animals is very unpredictable and can cause major health issues to the animal cloned. Some of these issues may be long term or short term effects, and the animals are suffering all for the sake of testing and experimenting. Cloning results in many problems, and there are

That statement proves that people have no idea how many animals are dying because there is no room for them, no one wants them, or the conditions are so awful that animal cannot survive.

no morally relevant difference between humans and animals that would justify raising animals, but not humans, for food on factory farms or using them in scientific experiments or for product testing." The modern animal-rights movement was inspired in part by Singer's work, which had initiated a large number of groups dedicated to a variety of related causes. Some of these causes include protecting endangered species, protesting against painful or brutal methods of trapping and killing animals, preventing the use of animals in laboratory research, and promoting what adherents considered the health benefits and moral virtues of vegetarianism ("Animal Rights", Britannica Encyclopedia).Respect is

your intention is to save one of them from their fate. Adopting a dog from a shelter can be hit-or-miss. Most dogs at the shelter are ones that have been given up by their previous owners or ones that got lost or were strays and got picked up by animal control. The dogs are not always in the best shape and may be underweight, traumatized, or sick. Often times, you do not know the dog’s past when you meet them in the shelter. You do not know what they have been through and you do not know what they have experienced. You might adopt a really amazing dog in perfect health, but it is equally possible you might adopt a dog that has severe behavioral issues or health issues that might require special

Cage eggs are another major problem that displays a clear act of animal cruelty. Egg laying hens are one of the many animals that’s only purpose is to produce “food”, they have deliberately been excluded from the laws that cover protection against cruel treatment.

concept behind bioengineering, the word by itself is so difficult to conceptualize. The type of engineering cannot even be compared to either chemical engineering or electrical engineering. Bioengineering is unique by the fact that it applies the principles of engineering to life itself (Aurrekoetxea, Maitane 289). This is opposed by many people since they don’t quite understand what it is all about and hence developing so many arguments. Bioengineering is mainly involved in genetic testing, tissue regeneration, stem cell research, micromachines and robotics. People often argue against these activities especially the idea behind stem cells by stating that they are ideally unethical.

First off, Stem cells are the earliest of cells that give rise to other types of cells, and have the potential to turn into many different types of tissue. Like Totipotent cells. Totipotent cells are considered the "master" cells of the body because they contain all the genetic information needed to create all the cells of the body, plus the placenta. So in other words, Stem Cell research can go along way to figure out the body's functions, and disease causing illnesses.So the British took in affect that this research is extremely valuable to their country and waist no time in testing their research further.

About 70-80% of today’s processed food contains GMOs. If you have never
questioned where the food you consume on a daily basis comes from, it’s time to start
questioning. A GMO is a new version of a plant or animal that is created by altering
genes using biotechnology. Today, more than 40 types of plants have been genetically
modified and are available buy. On top of this, 90% of Canola, 88% of Corn and 94% of
soy are genetically modified. The FDA claims that GMOs are nothing to worry about,
and that it is perfectly healthy to consume food that is artificially made. From their
perspective, genetically modified plants are just as safe and tested the same as
