In the article entitled “Research controversy hits pages of Britannica” written by Janny Scott, the author disclosed that the controversial issue faced by Encyclopedia Britannica regarding the use of animals in biomedical research. As stipulated, in the latest publication regarding the subject of dogs, explicit assertions that beagles, in particular, had been subjected to tests for biomedical research. Some of the tests noted included being forced to inhale tobacco smoke for days, testing household chemicals, and determining the impact of radiation as well as military weapons (Scott). Various reactions had apparently been received from outraged readers who demanded revisions and retractions from Britannica. According to Britannica’s general editor, Robert McHenry, the complaint stemmed from animal rights activists, scientists, and biomedical institutions. The assertions emphasized imbalanced statements without due credence to any benefits of animal research. As indicated, McHenry wrote the author of the discourse, Michael V. Fox, a veterinarian, proposing removal of offending statements. In response, Fox was revealed to aver that the most that he could do was to retain everything, which was affirmed as factual; and add a statement indicating that animal research has somehow provided insights for scientific and medical endeavors.
