medications applied to them, the examiners have to check for the safety of the medication(s) prescribed. There are other alternatives to testing animals such as computer simulations, biochemical, or cell-based systems. According to NIH’s (n.d.) website, “U.S. laws require that alternatives must be considered before using animals for research and testing under specific circumstances”. Though this law is applied for the United States, not many other countries practice the same ethical method. Therefore, I will only refer to the US in regards to animal testing. The process of creating new and/or improved treatments for both humans and animals have played a vital role in saving both living being’s lives over the millennia. Though the earlier times of animal experiment was rather brutal and inhumane, the laws that we have today helps ensure the safety of the animals that people use for experimentation. I have read on some organizational sites that argue “many labs pass inspection even where appalling legal violations occur” (Animal Legal Defense Fund, n.d.). Though their arguments are biased and lack little to no hard evidence of these statements, I will give a nod in agreement that statement and others from their “Did you know?” section seems plausible, but not factual.
