National Academy Press, 1991 - Animal experimentation - 30 pages
The necessity for¬ animal¬ use in biomedical research is a hotly debated topic in classrooms throughout the country. Frequently teachers and students do not have access to¬ balanced, ¬ factual material to foster an informed discussion on the topic. This colorful, 50-page booklet is designed to educate teenagers about the role of animal research in combating disease, past and present; the perspective of animal use within the whole spectrum of biomedical research; the regulations and oversight that govern animal research; and the continuing efforts to use animals more efficiently and humanely.
