People try to improve the society human beings live in and the surrounding environment.   The community improves the technology in office buildings, factories, and especially in laboratories where scientists test and make new discoveries.   In laboratories, scientists experiment specifically on animals to develop more knowledge about human conditions.   Though animal testing seems necessary, people push aside the negative effects that cause animals to suffer.   As laboratories increase the use of animal experimentation for the study of human health and the cosmetic industry, protesters demand an end to the inhumane practices which cause needless suffering and death to innocent creatures.
Testing on animals show the torture they face as they hopelessly go through pain and suffering during studies for human health.   For example, when studying for diseases "[most] medical research based on 'the animal model of human disease' maintains that [it will] reproduce spontaneous human diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, AIDS, etc., on healthy, non-human animals" (Martindale).   People thoughts on animal experimentation for diseases on humans helps cure and save many lives, but they do not know the many risks and hazardous mistakes one scientist can make.   Many problems occur during these practices and it does not make a difference from testing on humans.   Second, when making medicine, "[rats recieve] a heart drug called Milrinone that [increases] the survival rate of the rats; however, when humans acquires the same drug, the death rate [increases] by thirty percent" (Woods 25).   Giving out medicine to either animals or humans do not have the same effect to each other.   The outcome shows the unrelability that animal testing has when trying to make medicine for humans.
