Do you know what your research animals are being used for? With new advances in technology, there is a lot of research that can be done without the use of animal testing. But because we don’t yet have all the answers, it’s important to understand why these living creatures need to be studied. In this blog post, we will discuss 11 reasons why conducting research on animals is necessary and how these studies help us create better treatments for humans.
– Lab mice can be used to research diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. – Some researchers have found that lab mice are better than humans or other animals for studying the effects of drugs because they share some major similarities with human brains.
– The cells in a mouse brain react similarly when injected with certain substances as those seen in a human brain. – Mice also develop illnesses similar to people like Parkinson’s Disease, strokes, and Huntington’s Disease, making them excellent test subjects for new treatments before testing on humans is possible.
– Animal studies help us explore how different medications affect each animal differently depending on their size and genetics which may vary from person to person (i.e., one
