They say we are doing it for science and medicine. They make us believe that this is for the betterment of humans. But have you already forgotten that we are not the only species living in this planet? It is a good thought that testing on animals might save your loved ones from extreme disease like cancer, eye problems etc. But do you know all the experiments inflict harsh pain without the slightest anticipation of powerful benefits for human beings or any other animals. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), out of all the experiments, 92% of drugs and cosmetics, which are tested on animals, give effective and totally safe results on animals, where as they actually FAIL when tested on humans because they are too dangerous or they don’t work. According to the Humane Society, for registering a single pesticide, you are required to do 50 experiments which requires as many as 12,000 animals. Some of the animal experimenters justify their act by saying that some moral relevant characteristics, such as language, intelligence or consciousness only exist in human beings and are missing in other species. Marc Bekoff , founder of “Ethologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals”, says his research shows that the scientist are discovering that not only the animals have high levels of intelligence but also animals have consciousness, sensitivity and emotions to love, care and pain. According to PETA organisation, in 2010, United States used 1.28 million animals (excluding rats, mice, birds, reptiles, amphibians and agricultural animals used in agricultural experiments), plus an estimated 100 million mice and rats were used. In 2009, Canada used around 3.38 million animals in experimenting, and 145,632 animals subjected to “severe pain near, at, or above the pain tolerance threshold of not anesthetized conscious animals”. In 2012, United Kingdom used 4.11 million animals to experiment, where 2.95 million were without anesthesia. Today with new technological devices, advance techniques and achievements on high level IT development there are possibilities that allows experiments to be done without the use of animals. Lasers, microchips, fiber optics, computer based drug designs and digital imaging are just a few which contributed in bring successful drugs in bio medical research and replaced animals. Methods and experiments which are animal-free are more superior in many aspects. They are more accurate than animals experiments, more efficient and less costly than animal experiments.
