Would you want the perfect child? The idea of having a parent directed genetically perfect generation is not a new, just look at the 1997 film Gattaca. Only, a superior society is good on paper, but not even close to ethical in real life. The process of genetic selection is a sci-fi fantasy which should not be translated into the real world. Genetic selection is new, unsupervised, and dangerous for the potential children who were their parent’s top choice in a laboratory.
Scientists actually could remove a gene which causes disease, but this could end up introducing a new, more powerful disease to the body. Finally, genetic modifying can allow people to live longer. You may think that this is good that people would live longer, but there some negative aspects to this. Life would be very boring of course, but more importantly, overpopulation would happen and humans would be in competition with one another since everything would now be limited. While some aspects of genetic engineering should appealing, they all most likely have a dark secret hiding within
When people think about cloning they often imagen frightening human beings being created in some mad scientist experiment. Many barely know that cloning has been studied for decades and respect scientist from all over the world discovered many benefits for the humankind. “A clone is a genetic copy of another organism”(Cloning Questions). However, there are two types of cloning: reproductive and therapeutic. Basically, the difference between the two is that in reproductive the cloned embryo is implanted in the womb and is going to develop into an organism and in the therapeutic, the embryo will never develop beyond a chunk of cells.
The technology today is not advanced enough yet. In order to give birth to a cloned baby, women need to risk miscarriages, stillbirths, or the birth of deformed babies in terms of creating just one successful clone. Tim Redford states, “Nobody yet knows how to clone a human humanely. Ian Wilmut, the Roslin scientist who produced Dolly, counts her as just one successful out of 272 attempts.” (Radford, theguardian.com). Just like Dolly and other cloned animals, the chance of success is low; therefore, many lives will need to be sacrificed.
That life may not even be worth it because it takes multiple tries before the stem cells are even suitable for use in medical treatments. Look at how far we have come from the beginning of medical sciences, eventually we will make a reasonable alternative to dismembering human
Abstract- Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS), with various data mining techniques being applied to assist physicians in diagnosing patient disease with similar symptoms, has received a great attention recently. The advantages of clinical decision support system include not only improving diagnosis accuracy but also reducing diagnosis time. In this paper, we have given the CDSS with some advance technologies like Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier has offered many advantages over the traditional healthcare systems and opens a new way for clinicians to predict patient’s diseases. As healthcare is the field in which Security of data related to patient diseases are needs to be more secure, for that in this paper, we have use RSA
How would you feel if you tried something new that was putting your life in danger? It’s also a fifty percent chance of you making it through the new procedure. Embryonic stem research have not a total success in this world today. First, the treatments may not even work on a person why get your hopes up high. Second, they’re doing this thing called human cloning.
Even though this research might become useful in the medical field, scientists should stop embryonic research because it is not productive, and there are better ways to get the desired results. Also, it is not moral to use and destroy embryos in this way. Embryonic stem cell research may become a very useful study for medical research. Embryonic stem cells have several properties
The goal of stem cell research is in understanding the human development and treating chronic diseases. Indeed, some supporters state that stem cell research will pave the way for “regenerative medicine,” in which the tissues and organs that deteriorate with age will be replaced with new ones created from stem cells (Dresser, 2010). According to this group, interventions advanced through stem cell research will substantially extend the human life span. Should extending the average U.S. life span be a precedence in research funding decisions? Would it be more defensible to give conditions that cause premature death a higher priority?
Modern medicine provides people with the ability to protect themselves from the world’s most fatal diseases. Merely a century ago, it was not uncommon for a child to die as a result of diseases such as polio, pertussis, and tuberculosis. Today, it is highly unlikely for a person to contract these diseases, let alone die from them. However, refusal of vaccinations has been increasing throughout the years due to the anti-vaccination movement. This movement declares mandatory vaccines unconstitutional and vaccinations overall as the cause of autism.
