Cosmetic Testing On Animals
Cosmetic Testing on Animals
A topic that has always been close to many people?s hearts is the one of animal testing. Some believe that it is right completely, some that it is right but only under certain circumstances, and others believe that all animal testing is wrong and will go to extraordinary lengths to stop it. Should animals be harmed to benefit mankind This is a pressing question that has been around for at least the past two centuries. In my opinion, it is morally inhumane to torture our animals.
Every year, millions of animals suffer and die in painful tests to determine the safety of cosmetics. Substances such as eye shadow and soap are tested on rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, dogs, and other animals. All of this, despite the fact that the test results don?t help prevent or treat human illness or injury. Some of the tests used on animals are eye irritancy tests, acute toxicity tests, and skin irritancy tests. For centuries, animals have been used in these types of research. (1)
