He also states this claim, “Humanity would take control of its own evolution and kick it into overdrive” (Hayes) which was the need for a policy by giving examples of what can occur or happen if a child is genetically engineered. He backs up/supports his claim by giving examples of the progress made by us in the genetic engineering field. He talks about the discovery of the 5-HTT for reducing the risk of depression and the DAF-2 gene variant which double the lifespan of nematode worm which, if successfully applied to humans, will double our life span (Hayes). His warrant of his claim was that he makes his paper very sound and attractive to the audience or readers. Hayes also passes across that parents want their children to be the best of the
I also gave an explanation on therapeutic cloning process in which describing the all the good that could come from it. Therapeutic cloning is something that should get more recognition because the good it can do. As talk about before it can be used for more than transplants, but other study. There are endless uses this process can help improve humanity from find cure for diseases to getting a better understanding on an organ process. There are some still believe that the benefit could be accomplish by it, is not enough to overcome the ethic issue they have.
In Chapter 1 of the novel Our PostHuman Future, Francis Fukuyama biotechnology and the solutions to stop the potential hazards of using biotechnology and genetic engineering. In recent discussions, a controversial issue that has been brought up is whether biotechnology, that in the future, can pose potential threats to society and affect the wellbeing of humanity. On the one hand, some argue that biotechnology and genetic engineering allows for society to prosper because you can genetically make all individuals happy and unique. For instance, in Aldous Huxley’s novel Brave New World, society is broken up into caste systems and due to genetic engineering, the administration of soma, a drug that elicits instant happiness, and hypnopedia, members
Many Nano-scale scientists can make lots of things like they can “ already artificially synthesize DNA molecules. DNA Controls the formation of proteins,which may ultimately determine the health and behavior of entire organisms” (Little Understood, 20). This means that we as a world can make new species of animals and other types of humans to our advantage and make our world more interesting. We could also modify the way that certain species of animals can operate so that we could make an overly aggressive to humans species docile to not very aggressive to the point that they could be approached but keep the ability for them to still be able to get meals and protect themselves in the wild without any problems like the death of a rare species or several other problems that could happen if the behavior of the animal was not perfected to the way that we need it to be. This can be used in the benefit of modifying humans to be able to do things that they never thought were possible.
Theses statement The structural, organizational parts and the mode of delivery have been positively altered by technological advancements. The integration of technology has made a lot of improvements in the health care sector by making it easier for doctors to give services and the patients to access quality health care with less strain. The major areas that have benefited from technology in the health care sectors include cancer treatment and research. Introduction Technology is defined as a way of doing things.
Prescription drugs and surgeries can help lessen the effects of CES, but all treatment is symptomatic and only is aimed toward the symptoms. There is no known cure or prevention for CES First catalogued in 1898 within the JAMA Ophthalmology medical journal, CES was first reported by Schmid W. and Fraccaro M. The beginning of this time in discovery, CES was supposedly caused by Chromosome 13. This along other fallacies regarding the syndrome have been disproved with further research. In short, information changes and further testing for this syndrome will develop knowledge of the syndrome in
By editing the DNA of the cells or embryo itself, it could be possible to correct diseases and pass those genetic fixes onto future generations. It could makes diseases like cystic fibrosis, Alzheimer's, and diabetes history (Regalado). It also has the potential to increase life span in humans. Some scientists say the average life span could range between one hundred and one hundred fifty years (Uppangala). Genetically modified humans is the next venture for biotechnology companies working with the United States Military, with the goal of producing super soldiers.
While there are some areas of concern when it comes to genetic modification, this technology is beneficial to humans because it allows several industries to make more income, and it helps prevent several illnesses that can cause serious harm to humans. It is important to know the context of genetic engineering before discussing the benefits of it to the public. Genetic engineering, also known as genetic modification, is the process of altering the DNA in an organism. There are several processes that constitute genetic engineering, and it can range from changing one base pair of DNA to combining the DNA from another organism. The first case of genetically modifying an organism was recorded in 1973, and by 1994, the first genetically modified foods were made available to the public.
With advancements in real world we could accomplish this goal. Frankenstein is a prophecy because we are heading in that direction with the help of technology, however we would handle our creations much better than Victor. Progress has made us get to this point in life, while in Frankenstein they have more advancements, but we have learned to do plastic surgery and have created antibiotics. Joe Rosen states that “we use antibiotics to combat the flu” antibiotics have help us now combat not the only flu but other diseases, and illnesses so humans would not have to suffer from these illnesses (Rosen 17). Dr. D being a surgeon has done dozens of surgery to patients which has helped them get their life back to normal.
In Oryx and Crake, Margaret Atwood addresses the concerns about the potential risks of implementing genetically modified organisms. She warns that dependence on such organisms could lead to unforeseen consequences on society. With the improvement of technology and rapid growth of genetic advancements, scientists are able to create genetically enhanced animals. Scientists started off with relatively small-scale genetic modifications, however, when corporations saw the success and potential revenue generating ability, the genographers were provided with funding and the experiments became a business.
The legal system is in place not only to protect our rights and administer justice, but to increase the quality of life in a society. By legalizing doctor-assisted suicide, the quality of life increases. First, more lives can be saved with the legalization of doctor-assisted suicide. Many diseases such as cancers can take away use of certain organs. By detecting incurable cancers earlier, it is possible to harvest organs such as kidneys (cancer.org, 2014).
Without HeLa cells, half of the human race would have been extinct and scientists research would not be as advanced as it is today. HeLa cells have caused science to be impacted by being able to retain information through research and expand their philosophy on science. The scientific information presented is important to everyday comprehension which benefits the health of the human race. Imagine living in a world where HeLa cells are
Tuan Nguyen Epigenetic Epigenetic has been something that been receiving a lot of attention and for good reason as it challenge the way people think about the past, themselves, and the future. This paper will explore topics including what is epigenetic, how it relate to evolution, and what impact will epigenetic have in the future. To explore more about epigenetic one has to know what it is. Basically epigenetic is your gene turning on and off without changing the gene sequence itself.
In Mary Shelley’s 19th century novel, Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein is noble in his effort to help mankind. His scientific Prometheanism is initially meant as a good thing, but has serious negative consequences. Victor wants to bring life back to dead matter so humans, in theory, would not have to die. Similarly, in today’s world, scientists and doctors continually and nobly pursue advancement in the medical world to generate new treatments for sick patients. For example, the medical community today is pursuing embryonic stem cell research to discover cures for diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes.
