Here is some detailed information on Animals in Laboratories

In toxicological tests, non-human primates (non-human primates) was selected as most suitable for the study of neurology, behavior, reproduction, genetics and xenotransplantation (Wikipedia describes it as "the transfer of living cells, tissues or organs from one species to another '). They are also used in AIDS testing. above all they were bred for this purpose in the United States, China and Europe, but also that they are caught in the wild or collected from zoos and circuses. There is great demand for them in the laboratory and they are regarded as central to the development of vaccines and Deep Brain Distribution exam.
"Animal testing before human trials, but if we do not know if the animals are related to problems with people, it is even becoming a minimal predictive value ... the continued use of broad spectrum multi- strain / multispecies tests vividly shows that the researchers did not actually know that laboratory results can be applied to the FAIR people. "Hugh LaFollette and Niall Shanks, brute Science (London: Routledge, 1996) p 27
We are responsible for the use of animals in our study the physiological function and for our experiments to find a cure for the disease. Since this is the earliest known test of Roman and Greek in the second and fourth centuries, respectively. As Galen not only for their herbal remedies and also for their early experiments in animals known. Little is known of these activities in the following century, when there is no doubt rather than serious religious ethics that prohibit such work.
However, the use and abuse of animals in the name of science to develop as a regular and increasingly accepted by the medical needs in the 19th and 20th centuries. We have suffered a degree of indoctrination that animal sacrifice will result in our good health and freedom from pain. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee good health and mankind is still suffering pain and even new diseases.
More people began to turn against the procedure for ethical reasons. It was not until the early 19th century, however, that the first animal protection law was introduced - the British Parliament. About fifty years later, the Cruelty to Animals Act was passed specifically to regulate animal testing. Law promotes Charles Darwin and his feelings clear in a letter to Ray Lankester in 1871 ... "Ask my opinion on vivisection I agree entirely that it is correct for real investigations into the physiology, .. But not only disastrous and horrific curiosity is a subject that makes me sick horror, so I can not say another word about it or I will not sleep tonight. "
Anti-vivisection posters in public places plentiful by mid 1900 with many organizations trying to excite public opinion as to the cruelty in connection with medical experiments. Many other Rukminii Devi is effective in efforts to eliminate the practices in Australia and India. Many supporters now include the early efforts of philanthropists who believed in human dignity and the need to respect all living beings. The activists called on scientists to explore other innovative ways to find the secrets of health and natural remedies for disease.
The opening statement of Lafollette and Shanks is shared by many leading scientists and researchers not only an assessment of the need for change, but to present facts that even illogical and inefficient animals to show really is.
Two strikes against all those who continue to work, even if motivated by an interest in health if methods are found to be unscientific. One is the level of animal cruelty against no defense against their will to suffer from medical laboratories. Secondly, the method is not sufficient to prove the results in the treatment of pain and more importantly, improve the health of citizens.
Animal lovers are shocked and outraged to hear of thousands of animals that bypassed the experimental channels, if the dog, cat, horse, pig or monkey. Scientists claim that it is cruel to do what they do to animals are used as "guinea pig", as it allows them the ability to alleviate human disease. But animals are not volunteers.
Than medical purposes, there are many other ways in which animals are 'used' or abused. Our technology, inventions and creative age should be tested in all areas where the impact on humans is determined. With the explosion of interest in chemical science and in all areas of medicine such as drugs, with all new technologies used in surgery are required in testing for release in the community.
Animal and used in every branch of our curiosity and our research and our experience of life "needs" for life. Not only are the tests deemed necessary in foods, food additives, cosmetics, medicines, surgery and transplants, radiation, genetics, X-ray, chemistry, agriculture but also in animal farming, and industry. The newer fields, such as xenotransplantation and cell science significantly extend the sphere.
The wide use and possible abuse of animals in the name of science has grown beyond any average person's imagination. Some facts are reported by our news channels are serious issues that deserve attention. All too often the rights of animals and the persistence of activists is seen as a disgrace. Swearing is a tactic used to get people engaged in animal cruelty to be "fanatics", "Greenies" cast or grouped together in the 'tree huggers' rather than just looking at reality as a kind of animal lovers.
It is a global problem in many countries, each with different uses and customs relating to treatment of animals in general and animals in particular. There are signs of significant improvement in the international effort to standardize practices and a gesture towards "humanitarian" action. Under increasing public pressure, it is hoped that we made major changes in our attitude toward all animals in the decades to see.
Many statistics in different countries are unreliable or difficult to obtain, but those that are available to themselves speak of the enormity of the problem worldwide.
The British Union for the abolition of vivisection and the Nuffield Council on Bioethics is consistent with the fact that -100,000,000 vertebrate animals used in medical experiments in the world every year. The number of invertebrates is not known. Approximately 10 million action in the European Union.
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has said that in 2005 1.2 million animals are used. It closes and an unknown number of invertebrates, mice, rats and monkeys Laboratory birds.The Advocacy Group uses the USDA estimate that number to 23 to 25 million vertebrates and primates in research each year in America.
In 1986, the U.S. Congress Office of Technology Assessment states that the reports come variables with respect to the number of animals in the United States Reports range from 10 million to over 100 million per year. Their own estimate is closer to 17 to 22 million, the exclusion of rats and mice was estimated at 15 to 20,000,000 per year. Guinea pigs, hamsters and other animals are also used.
It is generally accepted that most animals are used in a manner that can be short and last minutes, months or sometimes years. The fate of animals that die as a result of the experiments or accidentally euthanized following testing utility. One animal died in a laboratory in the U.S. every second, every two seconds in Japan and the United Kingdom every twelve seconds. They are not commonly referred to as animals, but as "products".
Australian statistics taken from the Australian Association for Humane Research say .. that the total number of animals used in research and education in 2004 is less than 6,489,005 living organisms used in laboratory experiments .... as a represent ..... 580,550 rats and mice, 154,692, 14,161 guinea pigs, rabbits 6911, 2149 cats, 7179 dogs, 316,271 sheep, 32,203 cattle, 94,692 pigs, 6,576 horses and donkeys, 204,259 native mammals, 328 primates, birds, fish and reptiles , and 'others' to fill in the numbers.
Melbourne, Australia, Monash University offers an instance of 'services' available for obtaining experimental animals by their Monash Animal Services. Buy local and international sources is all too easy if the cats, guinea pigs, cane toads, rabbits, sheep, nonhuman primates and many exotic species. They also possess their own breeding rodents.
Alternatives to animal testing Sacrifice There are alternative methods without animal testing. Today, many cosmetic and household product companies turned their backs on animal testing and begun taking advantage of many advanced non-animal testing methods available, the range of cell and tissue cultures to computerized "structure-activity relationship" model. Human cell culture experiments have shown that people who predict with greater accuracy than the test animals.
In Australia, the initiative dedicated to the advancement of science, without relying on the cruel acts done to animals in laboratory research methods, medical advances Without Animals (that you'll) founded in 2000 as a registered charity Now based in Canberra. Co-founders were Mrs. Elizabeth Ahiston and Associate Professor Garry Scroop. Their policy is to offer a new direction for medical and general scientific research by discarding outdated and inefficient work methods and procedures replacement using cell science, human gene studies, analytical technology, micro-organisms, computer models, and any due process within the ethics of classical science. The philosophy behind it has attracted great interest because it is limited in support, but encourage a wide range of disciplines and invites collaboration of scientists that you make a goal.
Finally we witness the many voices that cried against vivisection is now heard. Darwin's answer to the degradation of science to mere curiosity is a common one that has led to the deliberate attempt at a new direction for a modern system of medicine that can be respected as a human branch of the many systems of healing that exists to create .
Successful alternatives to use and abuse of animals during the old and outdated and cruel practice to provide a happier future for our fellow creatures. We need to succeed in our efforts to attitudes that have allowed many millions of animals sacrificed his life to recover. And then, when people we hold up our heads, knowing that we are indeed becoming more human.
