Natual anesthetic? The right word is STRESS. Stress is the feeling we have when under pressure, while stressors are the things we respond to in our environment. Examples of stressors are noises, unpleasant people, a speeding car, or even going out on a first date. Generally (but not always), the more stressors we experience, the more stressed we feel.
When faced with a challenge or a threat, your body activates resources to protect you - to either get away as fast as you can, or fight.
Our fight-or-flight response is our body's sympathetic nervous system reacting to a stressful event. Our body produces larger quantities of the chemicals cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline, which trigger a higher heart rate, heightened muscle preparedness, sweating, and alertness - all these factors help us protect ourselves in a dangerous or challenging situation
. Non-essential body functions slow down, such as our digestive and immune systems when we are in fight-or flight response mode. All resources can then be concentrated on rapid breathing, blood flow, alertness and muscle use
When we are stressed the following happens: •Blood pressure rises
•Breathing becomes more rapid
•Digestive system slows down
•Heart rate (pulse) rises
•Immune system goes down
•Muscles become tense
•We do not sleep (heightened state of alertness)
Stress is a feeling humans and animals can have. And we know very well that STRESS CAUSES PAIN AND SUFFERING: Stress can play a part in problems such as headaches, high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, skin conditions, asthma, arthritis, depression, and anxiety.
Stress is the body's reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses.
A cat with an abundance of food guaranteed for the present and the future doesn't need to maintain in exercise his hunt skills.
Sure he will tries to maintain his skills. But we know he has a owner that will love him for all his life. So we can stop the hunting and save the mouse. And mouses are friendly harmless animals (despite someone says that they bring diseases).
Cobie, I have never said that we should let epidemics run their course. I want only show that we want intervene on the nature. And that is useful, we have to use vaccines, contraception, drugs and medications.
I don't help animals in not using discoveries that already exist.
Last year I met a nice Jewish boy that was against the use of Nazi discoveries because they were obtained torturing Jewishes, gypsies, homosexuals and handicapped people.
I expressed to him my opinion that for sure the discoveries were obtained in an unhethical way. Going back we should do the best to avoid what happened to those people. But nowadays we can't save the people already dead. We can save the people still alive and needy cures. So I think we have to use Nazi discoveries.
The same, we have to use the few discoveries already obtained using animals. Because they are already dead now. We can save the animals still alive and the people still alive.
Cobie, you used some wrong example speaking about the vaccinations obtained with animals. You mention some vaccinations not obtained using animals.
