What is animal testing?
What do you think animal testing is? How is it used?
Animal testing is the use of creatures other than humans in
scientific experiments.
One field that uses animal testing is cosmetics:
· Finished products are tested, such
as make-up and shampoo.
· The toxicity of individual ingredients
for a new product are tested.
Do you agree with this use of animal testing? Why?

Medical research
Animal testing is also used in the field of medicine.
Testing on animals often occurs as part of a series of
experiments. These start with test tube experiments and
finish with human trials .
Its uses include:
· researching genetics and
behavioural studies
· toxicology testing
· drug testing
· finding cures for human
diseases, such as cancer.
Why do you think animals are used?

Animal testing and genetics
Animal testing is often used as a first step to experimenting
with humans, especially in the field of genetics.
For example, it is hoped that being able to clone
animals will lead to the possibility of cloning humans.
However, most scientists
claim they would not clone
a full human. Instead, they
would use this procedure
to produce stem cells in
the laboratory.
Research how the use of cloned stem
cells might be useful in medicine.
