Two Examples of Mice Experiments - Valid or Not?

Critter News

I came across these stories about two different medical experiments using mice. In this experiment, scientists tested whether lighting can cause depression. They used different lighting situations to see how they affect mice moods. One of the conclusions? That children who watch television late at night could be “more likely to develop depression." I'm not convinced that I as a taxpayer would approve funding of this project. Aren't there better things to research?

4 The Love Of Animals

For example, cereal grains are a good energy source but if goats eat too much then this causes a build-up of acid in their stomach, which is harmful. Have you considered keeping goats as pets? Cats and dogs are the most popular pets, along with hamsters, rabbits and guinea pigs also being amongst the favourites. Those wanting a more unusual choice may perhaps opt for a snake or tarantula, but these aren’t exactly cuddly or cute choices.

I'm just going by equivalent examples in the US. Sounds like they may roll over on the issue. I don't know, but I'm just not convinced the Australians are that committed to phasing out this practice. Big industry never wants to change anything that "works." It's just too "hard.".

Tom Regan on Utilitarianism

Animal Health Care is Part of the Bottom Line

Critter News

Here's an example. I'm not arguing about the methods as I'm not a veterinarian, but it's a good example of the clinical discussion of costs when it comes to managing farm animal health.

Animal welfare is a cost of doing business, not a moral obligation.

Saving Marine Animals that Are NOT Cute

Critter News

Examples include panda bears, wolves, elephants, tigers, etc. We hear about the problem with charismatic land species. It's those species that either have a powerful personality or a cute face that endear people to them and garner news attention. It's easier to motivate people to save them as opposed to other species that are vital, but either boring or ugly. It's the same problem with marine life. People want to save the dolphins and the sea otters, but what about the bluefin tuna?

Humans Not Natural Milk Drinkers

Critter News

It's the perfect example of a market being created out of nothing. I've heard this before, but it's fascinating every time it comes up. There is such a push in society to drink milk for calcium for strong bones. But really, it's not natural for us to be drinking milk past infancy. Of misinformation that is repeated so often it becomes fact. If you really think about it, how many prehistoric people were grabbing pregnant cows to suckle on?
