Right or Wrong What if when you put on your lotion, your skin started to fall off? Animal testing prevents certain events like this from happening. Being a future Zoologist, I used to highly disapprove of animal testing. This was until I was in a group debate for animal testing in high school, and learned all the facts. There is all kinds of medical examples, statistics, and regulations protecting the animals. My opinion quickly changed that animals should be used for research. To tell the truth, animal testing is one of the best ideas for research. Animal testing has all sorts of medical examples to prove this. To be honest, it is nice to know I won't die from a toothpaste because of animal testing. Modern surgical techniques including hip replacement surgery, kidney transplants, heart and blood transfusions; all perfected in animals. Most is from mice, from which we share 95% of our genes, making them an effective model for the human body. Also, animals and humans organ systems perform the same tasks in more or less the same way. Animals suffer from similar diseases to humans including cancers, TB, flu, and asthma. More would be that animal testing has played a vital part in nearly every medical breakthrough. Almost every Nobel Laureate in Physiology or medicine since 1901 has relied on animal data for their research. Knowing all of this, makes me more level headed about animal testing. Furthermore, animals being used for research is a wise decision for the sake of human kind. The use of animal testing has tons and tons of statistics to go off of. Being a Zoologist in the future, this puts me at ease. Dogs, cats and primates altogether account for less than .2% of research animals. So that means at least 97% of research in the UK is done on mice, rats, fish, and birds. Also, the UK consumes over three hundred times more fish each year than the total number of all animals used in medical research each year. The UK will also consume more chickens this year than the total number of all animals used in medical research over the past two centuries in Britain! More would be that household cats kill about five million animals every week. That is more that the total number of animals used in medical research every year. So asking me, animal testing is not doing any harm. Additionally, research on animals is better than most people would think. People think

What is an Argument?
Everyone at some point and time has had what they consider to be an argument. Many feel an argument is a negative exchange of words between two or more people.

Arguments may be presented formally for academic discussions…
