In order for you to try and manage how to prevent a disease you will need to do some research. By researching you can get an understanding, try to prevent, and be able to treat the disease that are mostly impacted in the low and middle income countries. Increased trade liberalization, one of the driving forces
In conclusion, there are benefits and drawbacks to desalination. Despite the benefits, they are outweighed by the disadvantages due to the socio-economic and environmental aspects. Although proponents argue that desalination could solve the water crisis, critics claim that there are many alternative strategies that are more effective. In light of this, it is recommended that governments should shift to water recycling and rain water tanks to generate fresh water. Failure to implement this may lead to detrimental economic consequences for the
Vaccinations serve one purpose, to save people by reducing the risk of infections and contracting diseases. If people do not get vaccinated, protection is not guaranteed and the risk of irreversible health problems or death is inevitable. Today choosing to be vaccinated or not is a choice. However, the choice can either harm or save others from health risks. Contagious diseases such as
This essay will look more on the advantages and disadvantages of genetic engineering. Genetic engineering has some advantages. Firstly it allows for faster growth rate .Genetic engineering allows of plants or animals to be modified so their maturity can occur at a quicker pace outside of the normal growth conditions that are favourable without genetic changes as well .Secondly, it may also provide a cure for disease to improve health (apecsecadmin, 2014). Genetic engineering can be used to eradicate a number of incurable and deadly disease which could be done by identifying the genes that cause these disease, and manipulate them to prevent people from contracting these potentially deadly diseases. Genetic engineering could theoretically eliminate the passing of “disease” genes.
It is very difficult to make a case for any product or products without know what impacts such product has on the lives of people within the community the product is being produced. This is equally true about GMOs. In order for proponents of GMOs to argue their case successfully, the positive socioeconomic impacts of GMOs must strongly outweigh the negatives impacts. In this area I am going to look at two key areas that pertains to the socioeconomic impacts of GMOs. Firstly, I will look at the new emerging technologies relating to GMOs and how they are affecting the communities they serve; and secondly, I will look at issues relating to regulating GM products.
Specifically this essay looked over the Malthusian theory which is the pessimistic opinion and the Boserup Theory which is the optimistic opinion. Both theories have evidence that support and argue against them. The malthusian theory which can be questioned by how relevant it is to the world today and the Boserup theory and how it also may not be correct with certain countries today. To understand the food sustainability and to be able to predict the future of food production globally it is important to understand both the pessimistic and optimistic side and contrast them and find what statements are supported the most. Personally I agree slightly more with the pessimistic side in general when talking about the population growth and what effect it will have on the world.
The use of weedkillers does not harm this intricate relationship of plants. For example, sagebrush allows the retention of moisture which might have helped the grass the farmers have planted but they have killed everything in the way of the growth of the new grass. The removal of the sagebrush also ruins the lives of animals that need it (antelope and sage grouse). A removal of one species of plant can easily affect the whole ecosystem, potentially crippling it. Use of herbicide on roadsides can damage the aesthetic appeal and the environment around it.
The important question is why the detection of food fraud is important? The detection of food fraud is a necessary process to protect the consumer from the various risks of health, as well as due to many considerations, nutritional and religious reasons, in addition to prevent losing consumer confidence in the food products in the markets and as a result of this, maintain health and economy at the same time. Consequently, there is a special need for using new methods enabling rapid, sensitive and with appropriate cost to detect species specific differentiation of food adulterations in different food products. The development of new and advanced techniques for the authentication of food products continues rapidly with increasing consumer awareness of food safety and authenticity affairs. Food authentication is also of concern to food processors that do not wish to be subjected to inequitable competition from fraudulent food
b) Ethical implications related to this case: Whole Foods Market’s core values include “satisfying, delighting and nourishing customers” as well as “practicing and advancing environmental stewardship”. Whole Foods claimed that the pre-peeled oranges were aimed at customers who appreciated the convenience, but it seems that they are satisfying their consumers’ needs at the expense of the environment, as they are not only producing more waste, but also potentially wasting food, as the pre-peeled oranges would rot faster. They are able to act on one of their core values, but contradicting themselves on another core value, making one wonder whether these core values are really at the heart of all their operations and management, or just another marketing practice to be manipulated whenever needed so as to differentiate from other competitors. This brings forth the question of what makes a fair balance between satisfying one’s personal benefits and carrying out collective commitment towards our environment as a consumer? Although we are pre-occupied by our busy lives and want to save time, we should not forget our responsibility in being a good corporate citizen
