After Animal Testing Is Done, What Happens?

After the animal testing phase is done and everything is in order, the human trials begin. Peoples’ desperation is played upon in many cases. They want a cure so bad. Of course wouldn’t you? Are they shown the studies? Are they giving a realistic presentation of the risks they are facing by doing the trial?   They don’t even know if they are the ones getting the medication. This is done to avoid the mental and emotional effect of the testing. Have scientists ever thought of the mental and emotional stress of not knowing? How does that affect the results? What about paid trials? Is it assumed they are willing to take high risks to earn some money?

The bottom line

The bottom line is no testing is 100% conclusive. What’s worse is the results can be manipulated in favor of the desired outcome. While the ultimate goal is to cure devastating diseases, often the drive is to become famous or win some prize and not to save a fellow human. That is not to say that all researchers are unethical. Many are driven to cure a loved one or to find a cure so others do not have to go through what their loved one went through. Noble thoughts for sure, but are they thinking of what the test animals go through? They are capable of feeling pain at the least.
