By reading these articles I learned more about the costs of animal testing. I was aware that testing on animals was wrong, but I didn’t know the serious costs behind it and certain methods that are used when animals undergo these experiments. I received a better insight on exactly why it is immoral.
I was unaware of how experimenting on animals is sometimes unreliable and costs a lot of money. Sense animals have different genetic makeup than humans sometimes things that aren’t harmful to animals can be considered harmful to humans. Experimenting on animals doesn’t just harm the animals involved in it, but also can negatively affect the people as well.
I also learned that there are other methods and ways that don’t involve animals whatsoever. There are alternatives to animal testing such as human volunteers, computer modeling, and vitro testing, which are microscope slides that contain human cells.
Overall, I furthered my knowledge in this area and I will apply what I now know when I am purchasing products in the future. I will do my best in using products that don’t involve the torturing of animals.
These are the articles I annotated:
