5 Ways Animal Testing Hurts Humans

Drugs cleared by animal testing can still prove disastrous in human clinical trials. According to Doctor Aysha Akhtar, M.D., M.P.H. a neurologist, public health specialist, and author, “If you were volunteering for a clinical trial, there is more than 90 percent chance that the drug that tested safe and effective in animals will be ineffective or unsafe in you.” Laboratory animal caretakers are faced with a huge moral dilemma We will make the assumption that the majority of people involved in animal experimentation are not inherently evil, but are simply doing what they believe will most greatly benefit human-kind, We’re supporting animal testing with our tax dollars, even if we don’t want to be Yes, our tax dollars go to many things we probably don’t support, but we should be doing everything we can to know where our money is going and how it’s used. Only then can we hope to do something about it. Drugs that fail in animal models cause us to potentially ignore real cures Of every five to 10,000 potential drugs tested in the lab, only about five pass on to clinical trials. Many don’t pass the animal tests because of species-specific results. Yet many of these agents would likely have worked spectacularly and been safe in humans.”
