Animal testing by Ayush and Abhinav by Mind Map: Animal testing by Ayush and Abhinav

1. Ethical concerns

1.1. The test of products comes down to either animal testing or human testing and people find animal "suffering" better than human"suffering". While in some cases it can help in curing and preventing diseases, in other cases the suffering of animals is not worth beauty products.

2. Summary

2.1. Animal testing is one of the most controversial areas of scientific research. Many people couldn't care less, while others oppose it. Animal testing has been used to create newer and better pharmaceuticals, and test consumer products. Animal testing places the prevention of human suffering over the prevention of animal suffering.

3. What ethics should be practised

3.1. Considering whether animal testing is needed in that situations or not. Considering and balancing suffering and benefit. Considering reducing the number of animals. Minimising the risk of suffering and improving animal welfare. Maintaining biological diversity. Responsibility for openness and sharing of data and material. Requirement of expertise on animals. Respect for animals dignity.

4. Principles

4.1. Respect for Life - Animals used for research should be of an appropriate species and health status and should involve the minimum number required to obtain valid scientific results. Societal Benefit - Consideration of the full range of potential societal good, populations affected and the burdens that are expected to be borne by the subjects of the research. Non-maleficence - Minimization of distress, pain, and suffering is a moral imperative.
