"Animals should only be used for research when absolutely necessary. Since the last century, animal testing is going on. (Your tense here doesn't make sense; "since" is past, "is" is present. Decide which you want and then stick with it.) Animal testing is a test done by the researchers in the laboratories with animals. Some people believe that it is a cruel and inhumane practice. While others believe animal research is needed to advance, especially in the medical field, also important in improving human health. Deaths through research are absolutely unnecessary and are morally no different from murder. When locked up they suffer tremendous stress. Can we know they do not feel pain? However, animal testing has helped to develop vaccines against diseases like rabies, polio, measles, mumps, rubella and TB. Operations on animals helped to develop organ transplant and open-heart surgery techniques. So in our new technological society, I believe that animals should only be used for research when absolutely necessary. (Watch random and inappropriate capitalization.) Because animals are like humans. There is no doubt they experience a life. Like us, animals can feel pain and fear, but also excitement and satisfaction. Certainly animals do not have abilities as humans like talking, driving cars, or writing books. But regardless of intelligence, their life still has value to them. Exactly same is true of animals. (This is a redundant sentence; you just finished writing about how they have feelings but not the cognitive development humnas have. If you are not speaking about animals, who are you speaking about?) Animals are having stress (Tense; are you going to write this essay in past or present tense?) , when they are used for research including artificial marking and tagging procedures for biomedical and wildlife experimentation. The US department of the Agriculture livestock behavior research unit's Dr. Heng-Wei Cheng and graduate researchers Rachel L. Dennis and Alan G. Fahey reports (Remove comma) the potential side effect of four popular identification systems used in poultry research. The birds behavioral and physiological changes are associated with leg band, wing band, and neck band. From this research, because of the leg and wing band, birds are having more stress and they also having a slower growth during the research period (AWI Quarterly 21). (Tense?) Of course animal research is vital to medicine. The American Physiological Society (APS), a national non-profit organization for scientific research, said animal research has led to some of the most important medical discoveries in history. Though experiments using animals have played a crucial role in the development of medical research, it continues to help humans, as well as animals, live longer and healthier lives. Discoveries made through animal experimentation are heart diseases, diabetes,obesity,TB,some cancers, arthritis like treatments and some vaccines like rabies, tetanus, pneumonias, hepatitides and polio are wiped out. (This sentence needs to be clarified. Have heart disease, diabetes, obesity, TB, and some cancers been discovered using animal experimentation? If not, you need to describe exactly what was discovered.) Also they said animals are the better choice than humans, because some animals are biologically similar to humans, and humans share more than two hundred fifty diseases with animals. In addition animals shorter life cycle make it easier to study for scientists. They can control the animals through variables such as diet, age, weight, and physical activities. (Watch the spacing between words and letters.) They also change the animal's gene to study the genetic disease (Haugen 138-140). For many centuries scientists and testers in research have used animals of all kinds. Most of the animals are small ones like rodents - rats, mice, and hamsters. Some dogs, cats and a variety of goats, monkeys, and rabbits have also been used. In worldwide 58.3...
