The topic Iíve chosen for my issue paper is animal testing. The positive side of the argument is that animal testing has allowed us to be able to gain so much knowledge in the medical field. For example, we are able to master organ transplants, observe how exposure to radiation assists the body in ridding cancer. We have also been able to cure or observe diseases such as; tuberculosis, yellow fever, and syphilis by finding the containment bacteria in syphilis. Weíve also been able to prevent rabies and observe hepatitis. The negative side is that animals may have to suffer during some tests because scientists donít like to add another variable to their experiment. Also, the scientists have to make the animals have surgery or cause nerve damage in order to observe the strategies being tested in order to cure the disease or disorder being observed. Depending on the amount of damage that was done the animals are then killed. My greatest challenge for this paper is being able to present both sides of the arguments without being biased. Itís very hard because I donít know how to start it off and I donít know how to transition the arguments I need to do. Another challenge is that Iím trying to e-mail you and I donít know if you blocked your e-mails because youíre going out of town, but it wonít let me and I just needed your help. I donít know if I should provide some background information or the history of animal testing. I donít know how I should start off the paragraphs. For example, if Iím already including my main points in the introduction how would I include the information in the next paragraphs without repeating myself? This whole paper has me confused I wish you had an example for us to read or maybe you do and I just havenít seen it on the course website. Anyways, Iím going to try to e-mail you again with my question and if it doesnít accept it Iíll see you Monday. Anyways, have a good break with your family.
