    The use of animals to model human response to drugs and disease was based on these similarities. In the s, when animal activists criticized vivisection as scientifically suspect, they were usually wrong. One can learn from animals the main function of organs and other tissues in humans. Vivisection Vivisection is the practice of cutting into or using invasive techniques on live animals. It is used in medical research, product testing for cosmetics and cleaning products, in education, the military, and in agriculture.

    Despite animal testing dating back to Ancient Greece, the idea of ethical animal research only emerged in the 19 th century. Legally, the first bill regarding ethics in animal testing was the United Kingdom’s Cruelty to Animals Act of Several other countries followed suit, but protections remained limited well into the 20 th century. In.   Modern medical research still relies on animals. As well as medical research, testing on animals, primarily rats and mice, is used to assess the safety or effectiveness of products such as drugs, chemicals and cosmetics. Medical researchers are increasingly aware of animal welfare and continue to seek scientific alternatives to animal testing.

Vivisection (from Latin vivus, meaning 'alive', and sectio, meaning 'cutting'), also known as V-section, [citation needed] is surgery conducted for experimental purposes on a living organism, typically animals with a central nervous system, to view living internal word is, more broadly, used as a pejorative catch-all term for experimentation on live animals by organizations.

Vivisection: why it can never be right Vivisection is the practice of animal experimentation. This can include the administration of drugs, infecting with diseases, poisoning for toxicity testing, brain damaging, maiming, blinding, and other painful and invasive procedures.

It can, and often does, include protocols that cause severe suffering, such as long-term social isolation, full-body. Consider these facts: Vivisection Is Ineffective • More than 90 percent of basic science discoveries from experiments on animals fail to lead to human treatments.A review published in the British Medical Journal found that “even the most promising findings from animal-based research often fail in human trials and are rarely adopted into clinical practice.

Animal Research (vivisection) had nothing to do with these medical advances. In this article Doctor M. Beddow Bayly explains how medical progress came about through ethical studies on human injury, illness and disease.

Fallacies about Animal Research. In this article Doctor Charles Bell Taylor explains how the major medical advances came about. The use of animals for this purpose represents a very small segment of the many activities that constitute vivisection, and much animal use in this context has more to do with corporate profits and the endless barrage of consumer products that fuel those profits than with compelling claims of human health.

The vivisection controversy brings up other provocative questions: Is animal experimentation justifiable if it results in the possibility of a cure/immunization/vaccine for a disease (e.g., cancer, HIV/AIDS). Do the benefits of eradicating diseases for humans outweigh the suffering and pain caused to animals in medical research.

Vivisection is the use of live animals during operation for scientific research. Such animals may include: dogs, cats, primates, guinea pigs, and hamsters. “We may regularly witness or induce disease in healthy animals, observe morbidity and mortality in the animals we care for, and at times, euthanize animals for reasons other than alleviating.

Vivisection: The practice of cutting into or using invasive techniques on live animals. Derived from the Latin vivus, or alive, vivisection is commonly called animal experimentation.

What is animal experimentation. Animal experimentation is the use of animals for claimed scientific purposes where animals are forced to undergo procedures that are likely to cause them pain, injury or death, and.

In the war on disease and death, vivisection is sold as a necessary "sacrifice" of animals. And despite the fact that many people love their pet animals, they accept this notion that their lives and those of their children somehow rely on research being done in the dungeons of medical centers where the suffering animals are caged.

The mystery which surrounds the origin, development, and course of many deadly maladies of man and beast has ever proved a terrible obstacle to their prevention or cure.

Animals are held in sterile, isolated cages, forced to suffer disease and injury, and typically euthanized at the end of each study. While the majority of scientists are well intentioned, focused on preventing and finding cures for disease, some biomedical researchers fail to recognize or appreciate that laboratory animals are not simply.
