I choose the immunization study over the Stanford prison study as having the greatest negative impact (or should I say potential negative impact. The Standford Prison Study (Leithead, 2011) The Standard prison study, although shocking, affected a finite number of individuals.
Oh my gosh why are they dumping trash in Lake Erie! Did you know that in the 1960’s Lake Erie had an algae problem like it does now. “By the 1960s, Lake Erie had become extremely polluted” (Michael Rotman). In the 1960’s Lake Erie was heavily polluted by industrial pollution from Cleveland and other cities with large or small industries.

The Ok Tedi Copper Mine Define the main forms of pollution and resource depletion and identify the major problems associated with each form. The main type of pollution at the Ok Tedi Copper Mine is the discharging of mining waste into the Ok Tedi River in Papua New Guinea. The pollution problem began in 1984 following the collapse of a tailing dam used by the company that was responsible for mining copper and gold at the site. By 2000, more than 90 million tons of mine waste had been released into the river and destroyed tens of villages, farms, rainforests, and fisheries downstream.
We can view these chemicals on the table below: One of the chemicals of note is Dioxin that is highly carcinogenic.

Therefore people should stop using disposable plastic or at least reduce their consumption of it. The first reason why we should not use disposable plastic is because it pollutes the oceans and kills the marine creatures.
Many of the cancer victims are in their youth, and many of them have rare cancers of rectum, stomach and liver. The death rate is high and many patients can’t afford the money for treatment. There is a close link between the locations of cancer villages, factories and polluted river. Thousands of chemicals and petrochemical projects are located on the banks and shores of rivers lakes and reservoirs. Poor environmental regulations, weak enforcement and local corruption mean that factories can discharge their waste water directly into rivers and lakes.
Environmental pollution by chemicals in drinking water, air, food and in the workplace may provide to cancer. The harmful health accouterments of chemicals build upon on the dose, strength of the chemical comixture, the length of disclosure and the general health of the individual. Outside the workplace, very few cases of cancer are relying on to be caused by disclosure to chemicals in the environment. Most cancers may be fattened through the labeling and restraint of outside factors. Generally 30 percent of cancers are connected to cigarette smoking.
Chapter 1 Introduction 1.1 Basics of Lung Cancer: Lung cancer is that the leading reason behind cancer death within the us. Early detection and treatment of carcinoma is very important so as to enhance the 5 year survival rate of cancer patients. For traditional person, cells within the lungs divide and reproduce at a controlled rate to repair worn-out or skinned tissues and permit for growth. Cancerous Nodule develops once cells within the lungs multiply at associate uncontrollable rate. These tissue lots are known as tumors.
(Fears, 2012) Based on this comments, I think the two main environmental problems are the threat to species and water pollution with water born viruses such as pathogen being the serious threat. “nearly a billion people around the world are exposed to waterborne pathogen pollution daily and around 1.5 million children mainly in underdeveloped countries die every year of waterborne diseases from pathogens. Pathogens enter water primarily from human and animal fecal waste due to inadequate sewage treatment.” (Dorsner, 2017)

It needs to be transported miles depending on where the dumping location is and if it accidently spills into a river, according to Earth Focus on Fracking Hell: The Untold Story, it would wipe that entire river out. Fracking has severely harmed drinking water sources in the areas around the sites, which eventually could destroy communities around them. Meheny and Guggemos explain the negative effects fracking has not only on the consumption of drinking water, but on the geographical locations of wells and whether or not they are putting drinking resources at risk: “In July 2012, when a record heat and drought struck the mid-Atlantic region, the Susquehanna River Basin suspended 64 water withdrawal permits, the majority of which were for in-state Marcellus shale gas drillers” (Meheny, Guggemos 172). A water withdrawal permit is when 100,000 or more gallons of water is being dispensed, special permission from the town or city where the water source is located is required. The amount of water necessary to perform a fracking operation is extremely concerning due to the lack of water in some parts of the
The burning of fossil fuels cause industrial fog and grey air smog. The unburned remains are released as soot or particles of carbon which contains varying amounts of contaminants, including mercury and sulfur. This implements that natural gases have ways of polluting the
Physician Assisted Suicide Within the past decade, Physician Assisted Suicide (PAS) has become a controversial topic within the medical field. However, many people are not entirely aware of the terminology regarding PAS (3). PAS is when a physician provides the necessary means and/or information to enable the patient to perform a life-ending act (AMA). In regards to physician assisted suicide there are many positive and negative arguments that can help us decide for ourselves on how we feel about PAS.
