Should animals be used for scientific medication testing?
to check whether it is safe for humans, medications are being tested on animals from decades. don't you think so it is cruel? risking one's life for another? just because they don't say anything doesn't mean their lives dont matter. let me know what you think
It s a quicksand kind of topic.
Should we kill mosquitoes, cockroaches, ants? Aphids and caterpillars that eat up your plants. They are also lives. How about bacteria and viruses?
Scorpions and snakes?
Animals and birds farmed and butchered for food.
Where does one draw a line?
It's the medical industry that's nurtured the testing of medicine animals practice. I'd rather encourage switching to healthy lifestyle and medical treatment should only be restricted to surgery and fixing bones. For all other things, I think the body can take care of itself.
