Animal Experimentation and why it should be banned
Many scientists have been found cures to some severe illnesses lately, and while that may be great enough to celebrate over later, often they have to use animals for their life-saving medicines. So when you deeply think over it, you may wonder, is it really appropriate to experiment on animals, because I strongly disbelieve that you have to. What may prove successful for an animal may be a poison for humans, which in turn should be a valid point as to why humans should be experimented on. It is unnecessary and unethical, may even kill an animal and is a waste of resources.
What may work on animals may not work on humans. Maybe eighty five HIV vaccines may have worked on non-human primates in 2015, but it failed on humans. How did this happen? Well, for starters, bear in mind (no pun intended with the whole animal topic) that monkeys, or even non-human primates for that matter, and humans are completely different species of animals, despite claims stating that they may be our ancestors.
Some animals are more resistant to the chemicals injected in their cells, which may affect the results of a scientific cure for cancer depending on which animal is used. A snake's venom, if tested on an animal resistant to a snake's venom , would have no effect, thus giving the wrong results for an anti venom. Then there's the fact that the physical appearance of an animal could also change the way the results should be. For example, a penguin adapts to the cold and it is really small compared to humans, so testing cold medicine on penguins is ridiculous and useless.
