Menstruation caused two major concerns for women- excessive bleeding and humiliation. Excessive bleeding was a problem because women did not have the necessary sanitary products to take care of the problem. Survivors recall the pure humiliation of leaving stains on their clothes and around the camp. “Stains were against the aesthetics of the camps and women who were found to have bloodstains on their tunics were gassed.” However, holocaust testimonies reveal that many women were not able to menstruate after being in the camps for a few weeks. This was both due to a lack of nutrition and the psychological stress and horror of being in the camps.
Human Experimentation The looming concern of human experimentation was enough to deter some individuals from seeking the medical care that they needed for their well-being. The thought that trusted medical professionals had the power to perform unethical experiments on them while they were in their care was enough to let them live with whatever ailment that they had. By not seeking out the care that they desperately needed in some cases only lead to further problems. Several doctors abused their patients' trust for their own curiosities. Those curiosity-driven procedures led to many medical discoveries, cures, and medications.

The procedure putting another extra clone gene to the mom’s womb and growing is not easy and sometimes it can cause moms and the child 's death. Because we want a clone baby doesn’t mean we want to kill the moms so it is irrelevant and hazardous. Peoples want to believe that we shouldn 't be afraid of cloning babies or having engineered baby, but however people connected to their religion and didn’t want to mess with their god(religion) so because of that most of the people didn’t want to accept this technology. As seen in the (Caplan’s) article, scientists are using CRISPR CAS9 to make a new engineered baby. This tool helps to edit genes in animals and insects and now it also works on human to modify their genes and to enter the new gene to make clone babies.the intriguing instance of genetic modification was that there is a lot of controversies and agreements in human cloning.
Health as always been a concern no matter the time period and the Byzantines had different ways of going at it. Priests would come and bless the patients and pray that they get better, which sometimes worked because of natural cures. Another remedy would be doctors diagnosing the patient and giving them something that would make them feel better, like purgatives or bloodletting.
