Upon further research, the antineoplaston treatment did not follow proper protocol for the clinical trials, and the treatment was found to be dangerous in some cases. Because of these omissions, the documentary manipulates the viewer into believing its embellished claims. The real travesty is that Dr. Burzynski was selling false hope in a medicine bottle, and desperate families were willing to blindly take the treatment instead of seeking protection from the
Charlie did not even benefit that well from being a test subject in the experiment. Similarly, the treatment of Charlie was not very ethical because he was not treated specially for his mental state of disability. Lastly, this surgery did not provide enough benefits to even dent the weight of his unethical death. In the story Charlie was used because of his inferior intelligence and not treated well enough as he should have which led to his wrongful death. This story was fictional, but the use and abuse of human test subjects is
With SIDS, Gawande explains that it "is not really a disease, but rather the name doctors have given to one of the great medical mysteries of our time" (203). What he has explained is that the condition is an uncertainty to the doctors, and presenting SIDS as a consideration would mean that the evidence for abuse would be questioned. Looking at Noe's case as an example, Gawande writes that SIDS would be in a realm of possibilities. His line of reasoning is that "the original autopsies had revealed no marks of force" (203). Writing this, he proposes that SIDS may have been an unfortunate event that happened to Noe, even if it was eight infant deaths.

Some argue the idea that before Schindler’s List, his films like the Color Purple and Empire of the Sun which were serious films but some claim that the films were flawed in an attempt to maked the holocaust seem “more dramatic”. (Welsh The idea of this is absolutely false it is absurd and frankly sick to think that one would make one of the biggest human genocides “more dramatic” Others argue the reason that before Schindler’s list, Spielberg was a totally different actor. One film critic who reviewed the Sugarland Express, called Spielberg a “ commercial and shallow and impersonal. They called out the idea that Spielberg was more about marketing than the actual film. (Manchel 26).
The medical technology, knowledge and practices are far different from what we have and do today. If someone were to get shot today, usually there are no complications depending on where the bullet is, but back then there weren’t many thing that could’ve been done and not everything was the cleanest. The majority of people in the battle who were shot didn’t die because of the the bullet wound itself, but because of how it was treated and taken care of. Those who were shot, unfortunately had an extremely slim chance of surviving.
The mental health care system in the United States is known to be flawed. The majority of other countries with lower gun death rates have drastically better mental health care systems, although these systems are still far from ideals. However, mental illness is still prevalent in many other countries other than America, so the United States needs to stop using it as an excuse for the abhorrently disproportionate rates of firearm violence that prevail in the country. It would soon be discovered that fixing the mental health care system could not possibly solve the entire gun control and violence issue, because there are, first of all, many health conditions that are very difficult to diagnose. One of these is Bipolar Disorder.

The article “The Puritans and Sex” and the article “When Cotton Mather Fought the Smallpox” both talk about how the Puritans did not have a lot of influence. Whereas The article “Persistent Localism” talks about how they did.

But when Tom dies it is the most surprising and shocking event. The reason is probably because the film had a certain amount of time to cram the whole book in so they had to shorten the events such as To Robinson’s death. The movie detector still altered the scene without knowing that it may have an impact on the film’s mood. When there is altered scene means there are altered
In the movie Kingdom of Heaven, there were many inaccuracies throughout the film. Although the movie did follow the lines of the Second Crusade, things throughout the film turned out to be fictional. Some of these inaccuracies are how the love interests played out between Balian and Sibylla, those are not correct for the actual Crusades. Another inaccuracy is how people lived longer than they were supposed to after being wounded. Adding on to how people were wounded, they had medicine in the movie that they did not actually have back then.
Films that are based off books create a scene for the audience while bringing the words on the paper to life. They usually address the same issues as the original content, but adds additional details to stand out from the book. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is a book that was transformed into a movie in 1966. The book and film discuss similar themes such as censorship, dystopian society, and propaganda, but does different work with the same story of books being destroyed in a society. This is especially true when considering how the film introduces new ideas, eliminates characters, and changes important scenes from the book.
“ ‘Boom! It was a bomb’ said George Theodorakis”. (Raskin p. 81) Not in the movie it wasn’t. Instead it was a confetti popper in the movie. Making a movie out of the book changes how the story is because of time and money.
The Crusades were a series of military campaigns during the time of Medieval England against the Muslims of the Middle East. The period of the Crusades is primarily concerned with warfare and the art of assault and conquest. To begin with it seems fitting to establish the kind of warfare that was being fought before the Crusades, and to establish how they changed gradually over time.

During this time in a region almost utterly alien to their native countries, those who took the Cross encountered different obstacles and challenges to their goal.
