According to the Michigan Society for Medical Research, animal experimenting has increased exponentially in the last couple of years, which accounts for the significant improvement in the length and quality of our lives (Better Health through Biology). As animal based experimentation has increased in popularity in many medical labs through out the world, a popular and highly debated topic about animal experimentation has risen between scientists who believe that the experiments are only beneficial to humans and animal rights activists who believe that the experiments are immoral and cruel.

Due to specific animals such as cats, pigs, and goats that have immunity to diseases such as smallpox and polio, scientists use them as the foundation of their research to create and improve vaccines that are used world wide to prevent and cure ailments found in third world countries and even in modern technically advanced nations (Vaccines). Only a few decades ago were people dying due to diseases such as smallpox, the common cold, and polio and in some cases massive world wide deaths occurred such as the great flu pandemic after World War I. People died because of these diseases at an alarming rate without hope of ever being cured or even having some sort of treatment for their condition but as time moved along scientists began producing vaccines to treat and completely annihilate past diseases as threats. According to the National Association for Biomedical Research, “Virtually every
