Animal Exploitation

  1. 1. Death is much better than the Sufferings & Torture which these poorcreatures endure. They are supposed to live a happy life just like us but arecaught and stripped of their independence in a life which is no better thanHELL.
  2. 2. Many animals are used inscientific and medical research.They often undergo cruelmethods of testing and suffergreatly as a result.Animal experimentationis both cruel andunnecessary and humanshave no right to putinnocent animals throughsuch torture.
  4. 4. Vivisection is the practice of experimenting onlive animals and it is a term to which manyscientists object.In schools and colleges, frogs are themost commonly dissected animals,although other species, such as cats anddogs, are also used.
  5. 5. Numerous drugs passed as safe onanimals caused side effects in humansSkin RashesNausea & DiarrhoeaBlindnessBirth DefectsFatal Liver Failure
  6. 6. The advent of genetic technologies has made possible allsorts of new and horrific acts of animal exploitation,from cloning sheep to creating mutant and hybridcreatures with no dignity or quality of life at all. Weshould end animal experimentation before things geteven worse.THIS WORLD IS NOT OURS.WE HAVE NO RIGHT TOALTER THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT THROUGHSUCH HORRIFIC DEEDS. Do You wantto be likeme???
  7. 7. IS This Our Future???!!!!
  8. 8. Two of the most common animalsafety tests are eye irritancy andlethal dose tests.In eye irritancy tests, chemicalsare dripped into the eyes ofalbino rabbits. The animals areusually immobilised instocks from which only theirheads protrude, and theireyelids are held open with clips.Often, they receive noanaesthesia during the tests; somerabbits break their backs as theystruggle to escape the pain.After placing the chemicals inthe rabbits eyes, laboratorytechnicians record thedamage to the eye tissue,which can include inflamedirises, ulceration, bleeding,massive deterioration andblindness
  9. 9. In acute toxicity, or lethal dose, tests,increasing amounts of detergent, eye shadowand other products are force-fed to rats,mice, rabbits, guinea pigs and other animalsuntil a certain percentage of them arepoisoned to death. The widely used lethaldose 50 (LD50) test continues until at least50 percent of the animals die, which usuallytakes several weeks.Experimenters observe the animalsreactions to the chemicals-everything fromconvulsions, laboured breathing,diarrhoea, emaciation and skineruptions to bleeding from the eyes,nose or mouth. Like eye irritancy tests,lethal dose tests are unreliable at best.
  10. 10. In 1957,Laika became the first to belaunched into space, paving the way forman.Enos, the space chimp before insertioninto the Mercury-Atlas 5 capsule in1961.
  11. 11. DISEASE RESEARCHVivisectors use animals in an attempt to findcures for human diseaseMice are given cancers by being injected withtumor cellsIn arthritis research, chickens have chemicalsinjected into their joints to induce pain andinflammationHeart attacks are triggered in dogs by tying off thehearts main blood supply...
  12. 12. This is not how humansThis is not how humansbecome sick nor dobecome sick nor doartificially created diseasesartificially created diseasesprogress in the same waysprogress in the same waysas in in humans.
  13. 13. The FacT is ThaT all animals reacTdiFFerenTly To diFFerenT subsTances.For example:-- Lemon juice kills cats.- Parsley kills parrots.- Penicillin kills guinea-pigs.- Strychnine is harmless to monkeys.- Arsenic is harmless to sheep.- Insulin causes malfunctions in chickens, rabbitand mice.- Aspirin causes birth defect in monkeys.- Thalidomide is safe in guinea pigs.- Opren kills humans but not monkeys.
  14. 14. Even CigarettesEven Cigarettes!!!!!!For decades, and up to this day, animalexperimenters have been testing cigarettes and theircomponents on animals. They have forced primates,dogs, rabbits, and rats to breathe concentratedcigarette smoke to determine what its effects are.However, after all these decades of research, theirresults continue to be "inconclusive" becausesome species suffer negative effects while others do notexperience any health problems.

  16. 16. An estimated 83% of substances are metabolized by rats in adifferent way to humans.Less than 2% of human illnesses (1.16%) are ever seen inanimals. 95% of drugs passed by animal tests are immediately discardedas useless or dangerous to humans.According to the former scientific executive of HuntingdonLife Sciences, animal tests and human results agree only 5%-25% of the time.9% of anaesthetized animals, intended to recover, die.Rats are only 37% effective in identifying what causes cancerto humans. Flipping a coin would be more accurate.
  17. 17. We are told that they are less intelligent and important and sohurting them is acceptable.Isnt it wrong to cause deliberate suffering & deathAnimals experience pain, fear & lonelinessInside labs, animals have their hearts & other vital organsdeliberately damaged.They are poisoned to death with toxic chemicals and subjected toradiation burns.Brain damaged monkeys are forced to perform repetitive tasksin order to gain a reward of food and water.Animals have been shot and exposed to nerve gases and givenaddictive drugs.Those who do not die during the experiment itself are invariablykilled so that their bodies can be examined.
  18. 18. Animal research has become a habit and an entireindustry has been built around it.Scientists & Researchers who have built a careerpromoting the value of animal studies, find it difficultto reverse their positions.Scientists who probably do not support animalexperimentation may be unwilling to speak outpublicly.
  19. 19. After all………………Time, money, and resources devoted to these experiments could havegone to human-based research. Clinical studiesVitro researchAutopsiesPost-marketing drugMicro dosingSurveillanceComputer modelingEpidemiologyGenetic researchpose no hazard to humans and provide accurate results.Importantly, animal experiments have exhausted resources that couldhave been dedicated to educating the public about health hazards andhealth maintenance, therein diminishing the incidence of disease thatrequire treatment.
