Your brother received this brain injury while taking a hard blow to the head while in football practice. You probably know that these sort of deaths are a serious problem, and scientists are trying to prevent them. It is a comforting thought to know scientists are trying to stop these deaths. However, this research could not take place without the animals being used as test subjects. The use of animal lives in medical research and in testing of drug is a necessary sacrifice to save countless human lives.
For over the span of 200 years, millions of deaths in the United States by a severe disease have been prevented due to vaccines distributed by a medical shot. Such a simple prick of a needle, however, is controversial; sparking the debate as to the whether or not vaccinations are healthy. Despite the fact that there are existing arguments
If we never took the risks to use the same needle on a different human we would never had known that that can injure the other person. If we never took the flu shot billions of people would die each year. If we take risks like this all the time we are learning new things that will help out the future generations. If we take the risk before someone else we could give the next person who is going to take that risk advice. If we never take risks we would never look at things differently in life.
The Biopsychological perspective was the strongest evidence because autopsy showed that Williams had many medical issues that could have been a major reason that he killed himself. The Cognitive perspective was the weakest perspective because many of his cognitive issues were connected through medical issues which would tie in with Biopsychological perspective. At the end of the day no one really knows why he took his life but himself and he has influenced so many lives and would truly be missed by millions around the
The counterarguments to this claim are that the test are not worth the suffering that they cause and that humans should replace animals in these experiments for fairness. Both are inefficient arguments scientifically and ethically. The first argument is not valid because of the amount of lives the research saves compared to the amount of lives used to conduct research. Animals have been used in experiments for centuries and fairly recently have been used to create almost all currently used vaccines. This means even if each experiment uses a hundred animal lives to work, the result of the experiment will save thousands from sickness and death.
Even though we know that these technologies played an important role in the advancement of surgery, we still have yet to fully understand the great weapon that surgery has given to us. Modern day surgery has given us at least forty years more of life expectancy, and it has even given us cures for minute problems and diseases. Without the industrial revolution and the increase in diseases there would be no research to build us to the point that we are at today. Without modern medicine we would have an increasing amount of deadly diseases every year with the fear of death always on your mind. Often we take these simple things for granted, when in reality these are gifts from the generations before us.
Modern medicine provides people with the ability to protect themselves from the world’s most fatal diseases. Merely a century ago, it was not uncommon for a child to die as a result of diseases such as polio, pertussis, and tuberculosis. Today it is highly unlikely for a person to contract these diseases, let alone die from them. However, refusal of vaccinations has been increasing throughout the years. This is due to individual’s unfounded fears and imagined consequences associated with the idea of purposely inserting a disease into one’s body.
In Frankenstein, such advances were not up to par with what it is today. Back in the day, people would die of the common cold, flu, and other curable diseases. Without science, most humans would not only be dead, but most likely extinct easily due to an epidemic. In the article debating the advancements of science, it says, “The advancement of science has most definitely manipulated the progress of humanity over time, as is evident by the current lengths of people 's lives”. (2) Science has undoubtedly saves the lives of numerous people each year, and its advances are what keeps the human population alive and well.
In view of the above, it is obvious that our society haven’t been able to overcome discrimination nor prejudice. The Holocaust was such a graphic, brutal and unforgiving time in history where millions of people died because of their race or religion, that a reasonable person may think that our society learned from its mistakes and therefore treats all people equally no matter its race, gender, color, or religion. However, that is not the case today. Although our society has made great leaps dealing with discrimination and prejudice by implementing anti-discrimination laws there is still a lot of work to do. This work is not just for our government to perform but every individual must fight their prejudices every day to promote a better society were all people are treated equally.
Countless vaccines have been developed to counter diseases such as polio, chicken pox, and other diseases which used to claim thousands of lives. This was made possible though, by testing different methods and techniques on animals, in order to make sure that it would be safe for humans. The fact cannot be refuted that using animals for medical research has saved a vast amount of human lives. “If all animal experimentation were stopped, the slowdown would be real and the cost would be high… A delay in developing a vaccine [for Malaria] by just one month would kill 225,000 people” (Source D). There comes a point in which it is justified for “animals to be sacrificed for the cause of humanity” (Source
Dr. Daniel Ivankovich wants to reach out to the people who cannot seek medical attention since they do not have money to pay for it. He thinks it is unfair for someone’s health to continuously worsen, only because they are not insured. When Ivankovich became aware of this issue, he opened his own clinic and promised to help people whether or not they were able to pay for it. Dr. Ivankovich has performed over 600 surgeries and helped more than 100,000 people during his career as a surgeon. He “knows he can’t fix everybody” he said, “but my goal is to be the battering ram to help break down the barriers to get these patients the care and the resources they need" (Ivankovich).
