Biomedical research 'basic' and 'that's not aimed at the production and marketing of a drug, a cosmetic or a chemical in general, but it' s "everything else", that 'research that investigates the causes and effects of disease, rather than the operation of certain bio-chemical processes, rather than the effects of food on health, etc..
And what is 'noticed in recent years, according to the latest statistics from the Ministry of Health on the number of animals used as guinea pigs, and' that there 'was an increase, very high, 40%, in' use of animals in basic research. Bad news, of course.
This increase in the use of animals in basic research has been paid with our money. E 'was carried out in universities - subsidized with public money, our tax dollars - and at the laboratories of associations for medical research each year ask the help of all citizens of "good heart" with their television marathons and other events fundraising. Part of this money should not be treated to help the sick, with a real medical research, but are spent doing "research" on bogus diseases artificially created on a species other than human.
The associations for medical research
Most of the associations for medical research uses a significant portion of the funds raised to finance the vivisection. Do not be fooled by the fact that they prefer to call vivisection "in vivo research" always vivisection and 'because' vivisection ', by extension "any kind of experimentation carried out on laboratory animals to induce alterations in anatomical or functional such as exposure to radiation, the injection of chemicals, gas, etc.. " [Dictionary De Mauro, ed. Pearson]. And of course as the forced induction of disease, or even genetic selection of sick animals or with greater probability 'of developing certain diseases.
Luckily, another part of the funds 'instead dedicated to the true medical research, that' clinical, epidemiological, in vitro studies, development of new technologies for early detection, etc.. If it were not for that, there would be no medical progress.

IVs and flow rate monitors, new designs for scalpels and retractors and cauterizers, heart monitors, CAT scanners, MRI, PET scanners (that's positron emission tomography, not something just for pets), X-ray machines, dental drills, stents, camera pills...
These examples of biomedical equipment and instrumentation have all been tested and refined and improved using animal studies. And used in care for humans, as well as in vet care of animals.
And some of the jerks who took the risk and invested their time, research money and ingenuity in these ideas made money from selling this equipment too; isn't that awful? Not really
I've been a research subject2008-11-06 13:19:39 by --
I have thought about it. So have many of my friends, my partner, and members of my family. Members of my family have donated blood and organs to other people for medical procedures, and have contributed DNA and other samples to advance genomics and proteomics studies. And we're not particularly unusual people, either extra-healthy or ill. If you're at all interested in helping biomedical progress, consider taking part in biomedical research studies.
Potential experiments on human as well as other animal research studies are all passed through and evaluated in ethics committees these days.
There is a lot of info and research2003-07-16 07:29:23 by WhoKnew-
About the correlation of breast cancer and animal fat that has been out for about 30 yrs or more. It's just that medical science is only beginning to look at diet and it's correlation with health and\or disease. Other parts of the world, especially Israel, have major studies showing the effects of hormones in processed dairy products on increased rates of breast cancer.
Animal testing is largely misleading, a waste2006-10-11 00:32:30 by mansize
There's really not a conflict. Animal results are largely misleading and fruitless for medical research purposes.
"What good does it do you to test something (a vaccine) in a monkey? You find five or six years from now that it works in the monkey, and then you test it in humans and you realize that humans behave totally differently from monkeys, so you've wasted five years."
-Dr. Mark Feinberg, a leading AIDS researcher, Atlanta Journal Constitution, September 21, 1997
"Because of the irreconcilable biological differences between animals and human beings, the results of animal tests cannot be applied to human beings with any degree of confidence
