By the second half of the 19th century, doping and steroid abuse had become a serious problem. In 1967 two athletes, Tom Simpson a British cyclist and runner Dick Howard lost their lives due to amphetamine and heroin abuse respectively. Doping became an illegal action and any athlete caught or proved to be doped was banned from competing. Many athletes were first awarded but then their awards were taken back and they were banned from the sport. In the 21st century numerous athletes were accused of doping like the sprinters T. Montgomery, D. Chambers, M. Jones and many unknown.
Within six days--in what was going to be a two-week experiment--the guards were systematically and brutally abusing the prisoners. Psychologically abusing them, I mean, because I'd prevented physical abuse. But the psychological abuse was so extreme and so creatively evil that five young men playing the role of prisoners had emotional
These experiments not only went on for months but also continued although was proven that smoke tobacco caused cancer, therefore the experiments were unnecessary. And other similar experiments had been used to get enough data on toxicity of lead, rat poison, etc. To determine the lethal doses of these substances the researchers force animal to inhale or to eat them these toxics substances till the half or 75% of the group died. Survivors had several sequels in their skins, brain, muscles, etc (Boyd 1991). The cruelty inflicted on these animal is real and barbaric and there is no justification for performing them.

A case involving a Stanford swimmer, Brock Turner, who sexually assaulted an unconscious woman and only served three months in prison, shows the lack of justice for women. Brock Turner stated that he blamed the consumption of alcohol for his actions. The victim was also intoxicated so she was not able to give proper consent which means Turner was guilty (Robbins 2). While the court punished him, he was minorly penalized because of his growing future. Men should not be given leeway based on their contributions in society.
To begin with, “It’s a life or death issue. We are losing six people a day from just prescription drug abuse”. (James Mcdonough) reason that we are losing six people a day is because of the prescription drug ads that are on tv. Another thing is that people who see the drug ads feel the need to call for an appointment for their doctors to have them prescribe them a medicine that they want. Some of the people that see the drug ads on tv are thinking that it is ok to ask their doctors for prescriptions which is weakening their relationships between each of them and then once they were asked for the prescription the doctor felt pressured to prescribe the drug even though they knew it would increase the cost of the drug and they knew that the patient just wanted it to have the drug because they want they do.

A couple of years ago a drug called TGN1412 was tested on some human volunteers, it nearly killed them, even so, they were left with permanent, disgusting health problems. So what on earth gives a scientist the right to go ahead and test it on an animal with a dose 500 times stronger, its sheer cruelty. The most controversial part of
Some decades ago, people who were working in the factories which manufactured batteries start falling ill due to lead poisoning. The expert doctors discovered that when they injected EDTA into the human body then the EDTA will get mixed in the blood stream and grab all of the poisonous metals from the body organs. After these toxic metals are collected they’re removed from the body through urine. This is now considered as the beginning of chelation therapy. After achieving this success the scientists and doctor closely examined the patients who have undergone chelation therapy for the removal of toxic materials from the body.
Unfortunately, Lance Armstrong was found guilty of blood doping. Dictionary.com defines blood doping as “a procedure in which an athlete is injected with erythropoietin, his or her own blood, or the blood of a family member prior to competition, purportedly increasing the blood's oxygen-carrying capacity as a result of the addition of red blood cells.” This gave him an unfair advantage over his opponent which allowed him to successfully win the Tour De France 7 times. I believe that he will be remembered for the disappointing moments in his life because he has not been able to restore his reputation. Another reason for this is because most people remember the most recent incidents and fallen moments in a role model or celebrity’s life. People expected more of Lance due to his remarkable reputation before his
