Although the movie credited antineoplastons as the “most important discovery in cancer treatment – ever” (Burzynski), clinical evidence as well as dangerous results do not support this biased claim. Upon further research, the antineoplaston treatment did not follow proper protocol for the clinical trials, and the treatment was found to be dangerous in some cases. Because of these omissions, the documentary manipulates the viewer into believing its embellished claims. The real travesty is that Dr. Burzynski was selling false hope in a medicine bottle, and desperate families were willing to blindly take the treatment instead of seeking protection from the
Because exchange of property is a strict liability tort, the court feared that extending property rights to include organs would have a chilling effect on medical research. Laboratories doing research receive a large volume of medical samples and cannot be expected to know or discover whether somewhere down the line their samples were illegally obtained. Moore could sue only his doctor, nobody else, for failing to adequately inform him. Just one of many examples of the shortfalls of an informed consent. From a legal standpoint no one has the right to even touch, let alone treat another person without permission.
One of the previously mentioned arguments for anti-vaccers was the argument that the vaccine would cause teenagers to act more immorally. This is proven to be false when Dr. Saslow, the lead author of the cancer society’s, updated guidelines and firmly states that there is “no direct connection between the vaccine and sexual activity and no reason to suggest one.” Brody’s mention of the famous doctor effectively persuades the reader to see the truth behind the research. The mention of parents being concerned about the effects these vaccines is considered a rhetorical cannon of relationship. The supposed relationship between the vaccine and physical consequences encountered after being vaccinated is a the main elements behind the anti-vaccers argument. Previously mentioned, there are plenty of stories on the internet alleging that the medical problems their child is now facing is a direct result of the HPV vaccine.
According to the article Psychopathy: A Misunderstood Disorder, published in Science Daily, we don’t really know much about psychopathy at all! Instead of it being one disorder, it is actually many, that together form psychopathy, thus the countless studies that contradict each other. Lead author Jennifer Skeem, along with colleagues Devon Polaschek, Christopher Patrick and Scott Lilienfeld say that the seemingly small differences in psychopaths are often overlooked by policy-makers, when the differences can actually develop into serious problems down the road. Skeem wants to clarify the common misconception about how one becomes a psychopaths, if they are born that way or made that way, the common “nature v. nurture” dilemma. Research suggests
Author John M. Barry, in The Great Influenza, claims that scientists must embrace uncertainty and doubt their ideas in order to be successful in their research. To support his claim, he first states that “uncertainty creates weakness”, then lists the traits required by scientists (including curiosity and creativity), and finally explains that experiments must be made to work by the investigator. The purpose of this is to further support his claim in order to encourage readers to embrace uncertainty because certainty creates something to lean on, while uncertainty forces one to manipulate experiments to produce answers. Barry adopts a formal tone to appeal to a worldwide audience, specifically those interested in scientific research, by using
The Tuskegee Syphillis Study, the Nazi scientific experiments on Prisoners of War during the Second World War are all extreme cases that exaggerate the need for an ethical approach with regard to health. The argument behind conspiracy theories is that diseases may be man made for purpose of experimentation or scientism for the acquisition of knowledge. Other than the immoral and unethical implications as highlighted by these studies, the need for absolute permeability to access treatment is highlighted This is particularly salient in the Tuskegee Syphillis Study in which the sample was not treated for the disease. Although the issues have been debated and opaque nature of seeking treatment has been debunked, there still exists several several factors which prevents persons from seeking treatment which may be rooted in fear of stigmatization, prejudice and/ or discrimination. This is especially the case with sexually transmitted diseases and sexually transmitted infection, where cultures portray sex as taboo.
He seems to not be bothered by it, as he writes,” If the truth offends people, it is our job as scientists to offend them” and “I do science as if the truth mattered and your feelings about it didn 't.” Kanazawa is treading on a slippery slope, because of the sensitive nature of his topic. Even if his research was accurate and precise (it isn’t), he would still have to answer questions regarding racism and cultural sensitivity. The Root’s Jenée Desmond-Harris was also critical about Kanazawa’s post, so much that she thought it was a “hoax of some sort.” Latoya Peterson believes that Kanazawa is trying to justify his own bigotry under the pretext of science.
The first plagiarism is when you don’t used any of the works by copying it but using that persons idea as yours that is also an plagiarism works, second one this is when you plagiarize word by word same as copying and paste others idea and used it like it’s yours, and last but not the least this plagiarize refers to stealing one’s own work, this one is the controversy self-plagiarism amounts to the scientific misconduct. So these are the main bullets of plagiarism that is not allow in the medical field. I can cause a lot work in the field. Don’t messed in the real world, because they don’t take that kind of
For example Jonah Lehrer, who is author of the “Groupthink” article, says in his text taht “Although some group conversations will occasionally be unpleasant, that does not mean that they can be avoided. (9)” At this point, I totally disagree with Mr. Lehrer because as I said before even a small disruptive effect on the creative individual can demolish all the work he created alone. These effects can appear to us as uninportant, however, these bad impacts on original ideas can extinguish wonderful ideas. For instance; Max Planck, who invented Planck Quantum Theorem that uncovers the secrets of universe was humiliated by other scientists. Eventually, even Planck started to not believe his own theorem because of other people’s bad impacts.
(Milgram 1974) As this report has highlighted the research is not without controversy with many questioning to what extent Milgram’s experiment is true to real life and has been criticized for not highlighting further situational variables in determining obedience to authority. Regardless of this, there is no doubt Milgram highlighted a rather troubling phenomenon. As Romm (2018) noted, his research despite its flaws, remains a key topic of research and debate not because it clearly answers why humans are capable of terrible atrocities, instead raising more questions than it
