Literary Review

Animal testing is becoming a huge issue in our society today but nobody seems to
realize it. As a consumer, you have a lot of power to help to stop animal testing. By
purchasing cosmetics and other products that are not tested on animals and by supporting
compassionate charities, you can send a powerful message to corporations and organizations
that they will not receive your hard earned money as long as they continue conducting
inhumane tests on animals. Although more than 1,100 companies have banned all animal
tests, some corporations still force substances into animals stomachs and drip chemicals into
rabbits eyes. These tests are not required by law, and they often produce inaccurate or
misleading results, even if a product has blinded an animal, it can still be marketed to you.

In the article Animal Testing is Pointless and Painful it explains how are immune
systems are different than animal immune systems. Animals can take on different reactions
to drugs than we do, sheep swallow large quantities of arsenic, penicillin kills guinea pigs,
aspirin kills cats etc; This relates back to my primary research because it shows that we have
different metabolisms and that theres no point in harming animals because we all tolerate
different things. Its established from comparisons of human and animal data that animals
are an ineffective way of predicting what a drug does to a human. An example of this was a
study that looked at side effects that were detectable in animals. The undetectable ones
(like hearing damage and depression) were ignored. Over half (54%) of the side effects were
not detected by the animal tests. This proves that putting animals to harm is wasting our time
because we all react to different things and were killing our animal population for no reason.

In 2003, the EU finally responded to the long-standing public compain against
cosmetics tested on animals by introducing a ban on animal testing for cosmetics and
toiletries inside the EU. The ban was introduced in stages and became complete in 2009. The
results were, no testing animals for cosmetics now takes place anywhere in the EU. This
relates to the Union Government banned cosmetics companies from animal testing and how
the amendment provides that any cosmetic product that carries out animal testing will face
as per provisions of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act and the Animal Cruelty Act. However the ban
does not prevent companies from importing and selling goods into the country. Companies are
still free to outsource their animal testing to other countries and then import newly animal-
tested cosmetics and ingredients back to other countries.

Tests that use animals to assess the safety of cosmetics and personal care products
such as lipstick,mascara,shampoo,and cologne. This testing is still extremely common in the
United States. Its estimated that thousands of mice,guinea pigs, rats, and rabbits suffer and
die suffer and die in these tests every year in the U.S alone. The pain relief is rarely provided
and the animals used are always killed at the end of each test. This connects to my article
Animal testing cruelty is to be avoided. Shopping cruelty is all about voting with your wallet
and giving money to companies who test on animals, there are several companies who make
animals suffer for the sake of beauty. Several countries have dropped the End Cruel
Cosmetics Bills just like the European Union had banned the practice just last year.

In conclusion, I think that animal testing is wrong and theres several points to justify
my answer. The results of animal research are not applicable to humans, and using animals
for study and research in laboratories are cruel and unnecessary, I think humans should not
use animals for scientific research. Instead, alternatives capable of replacing animal research
should be used.
