The use of animals in research is one of the most controversial issues known to science. People who are in favor of animal experimentation insist that lifesaving vaccinations, medicines, and medical procedures would never have been possible without it. Opponents insist that the same results might have been achieved without animals. Through objective overviews, primary sources, and full-color illustrations this title asks Do the Benefits of Animal Experimentation Justify Its Use? Should Animal Experimentation Be Used in Education? Are Animal Experiments Conducted Humanely? Can Alternative Methods Eliminate the Need for Animal Experimentation?
