Dichloro acetate (also known as DCA) has been predicted by many scientists to be the potential alternative cure for cancer since it was found that it killed the human cancer cells in a rat. However some scientists are not sure yet as to whether the treatment is the best solution because the human being studies have not been completed yet. Some scientists are against it because of its harmful side effects such as nerve functions. DCA is the said to be an acid, an analogue of acetic acid in which the three hydrogen atoms of the methyl group have been replaced by the chlorine group (2). DCA attacks the cancer cells and make their energy throughout the main body of the cell.
An article by Long (2010) stated that lobotomy was first performed in Lisbon in 1935. Lobotomy was performed by drilling two holes in the patients’ skulls, and the doctor would insert pure alcohol to destroy the brain’s tissue or surgically destroy the nerves that connect parts of the brain. Lobotomy was believed to be able to cure mental illness. However, because of its huge amount of failures and protests, many stopped performing lobotomies since it was considered barbaric. However, United States was among the countries that still performed lobotomies until the 1980s.
In any case, McDonald 's committed the error of asserting that "everything" imprinted in the pamphlets was false. Truth be told, sure claims, (for example, an eating routine high in fat, sugar, creature items, and salt is connected with coronary illness) were valid. After twelve years, at the season of Fast Food Nation 's printing, the "McLibel case" was still not determined altogether. On the other hand, McDonald 's got to be sick of the terrible reputation that resulted and did not plan to gather any cash or keep on preventing London Greenpeace from conveying its
None had regular dietary access to Vitamin C; a nutrient needed to prevent scurvy. As Letterman records in his memoirs “this disease ... and the causes which give rise to it undermine the strength, depress the spirits… of those who do not report themselves sick, and who yet are not well.” Medical records describe other common deficiencies through symptoms yet ultimately list the diagnosis of some variant of scurvy. This was a reflection of the medical understanding at the time; “some complaints were listed according to symptoms, others according to the seat of the disease, and still others according to their real or fancied cause.” For example, a deficiency in vitamin A manifested in night blindness, and niacin deficiency was evidenced through skin sensitivity and diarrhea. Due to this lack of understanding about malnutrition and its various symptoms, physicians diagnosed night blindness, or skin irritation, or diarrhea, rather than
Animal testing is it worth it or not? “We have moved away from studying human disease in humans. We all drank the kool-aid on that one, me included. The problem is that it hasn 't worked, and it 's time we stopped dancing around the problem. We need to refocus and adapt new methodologies for use in humans to understand disease biology in humans” said by Dr. Elias Zerhouni, former director of the National Institutes of Health (8 Expert Quotes Admitting That Testing on Animals Is Unreliable, page 2).
Walter Payton, former Bears running back, had died from a form of liver cancer. Even though his doctors were very optimistic about his condition in the past, he still died from primary sclerosing cholangitis. Per the Baltimore Sun, primary sclerosing cholangitis is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks its own tissues and scars the bile ducts. His physicians couldn’t believe that the problems he had from the liver disease would quickly kill a man with his physical abilities. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., diagnosed Payton with a side effect that caused his ducts to drain bile from his liver.
Although, I see the reasoning behind not requiring vaccinations. Every person has the right, but if they are going to harm the rest of the human race just because they do not vaccinations I do not agree with that. I do believe that vaccinations are a good thing and should be
The purpose of this research was to study the effects of syphilis on the human body if it went untreated. The main group of test subjects was 600 men of color, 399 of which had the disease, and 201 to be used as a control. The men were never informed of the purpose of the research and were lured into the study under the guise of free blood tests and treatment. Although at the start of the research there was no effective cure for the disease, the men were left untreated even after penicillin was discovered as the miracle cure for bacterial infections. In summary, doctors failed to treat sick patients in order to study a curable disease run its
At the beginning of this time period medicine was infrequent. There were only problems no solution; Infectious diseases such as The Great Plague were spreading but there we no medication for it. To cure the horrible epidemics they tried herbal remedies made out of plant and animals which had little effect on the patients due to lack medical knowledge. People again started to believe at the theory of four humors (Aristotle) and treatments by opposite humors (Galen) They used alcohol as a pain killers but it was hardly used due to the
