Asakaze Nishimura TOK Period 8 Mr. Lamb May 17, 2016 Extended Essay 2008 words The shortage of organ donors and the rapidly increasing demand for organ transplantation has been causing many dilemmas in our society. Organ transplantation can save many people’s life if it is done accurately on time but the problem in many cases is that people get rejected. By the time the patient has received its donor submission, in most situations it is too late to do the organ transplantation. But even if you get a chance to get an organ transplant on time, there is what is known as transplant rejection. Transplant rejection occurs when the transplant recipient’s immune system rejects and attacks the transplanted organs.
One reason there’s a shortage of transplantable kidneys is that living donors are not always able to give their kidneys to person they want to because of biological reasons; loved ones for example. Kidney exchange implemented worldwide would provide an opportunity for exchange to occur. Finally, in regard to tackling black market issues legal avenues could be sought. For example, laws could be enacted that would hold doctors accountable for not reporting suspected organ trafficking. Currently, doctors would be violating doctor-patient privilege, their legal obligation to the patient is superseded by public interest in ending alleged medical violations of human rights.
because of the way they do this which is though DNA many problems will occur out of this. according to George Dvorsky the way the clones are created there is much room for error and when there error you 're wasting time energy and money.

INTRODUCTION Human organs are the most valuable gifts of life by the Creator. Until today, thousand of lives have been saved by organs transplant by the sale of human organ or by donation. However, nowadays the organ donations have decreased and the demand of the organ has increased. According to Farah Salwani Muda @ Ismail (2014), the problem of organ shortage started to emerge in the mid-1980s, when the person who is in needed of the organ has to wait for a very long time to get the required organs and the demand has became higher than the supply. Thus, the illegal selling of human organ had increased in order to support the demand of human organ to save the lives of people.
Everyone should be an organ donor if they qualify. Many people around the world are waiting on a list while they are slowly wasting away, and could be for years to follow because there aren’t enough donors for the number of recipients. Right now there are 115,429 people waiting for organs. We could be saving more lives then we are today by simply requiring organ donation. Although there are valid reasons people say no to it, but there are many more reasons to be a donor.
This nation spends more money on healthcare than any other country and is still not able to provide better healthcare than those countries. I also agree with the article in terms on patient taking advantage of Medicaid/Medicare programs and demanding over-treatment. As an insurance administrator, my job is to run eligibility and benefits for all patients in our office which consists of almost thirty specialists, and when I run legibility, I see the same patient visiting different specialists on a daily basis. It is not always necessary that the patients only encourage over treatment, many physicians also encourage over treatment but regardless of who encourages it, the government suffers. After reading the article I realize the importance of the quality of healthcare.
Despite advances in medicine and technology, and increased awareness of organ donation and transplantation, there continues to be a gap between supply and demand. The United States should be an opt-in system instead of an opt-out system and if anything help people change their minds and become either live donors or donors when they pass-away with facts, common misconceptions, and myths. There are many facts about organ donation that many people do not know. In Australia they use an opt-out system meaning everyone is an organ donor at death this keeps the organ donation waiting list really low at only one thousand, five hundred people at any one time while the USA has an opt-in system meaning you ask to be put in and at any one time seventy-four
Plastic surgery may have a bad reputation from media and the television series “Botched,” which focuses on cosmetic procedures gone wrong. The media portrays plastic surgery as a way for the wealthy to become more beautiful, thinner, or younger looking. One may consider this the dark side of the industry because, it allows people to cover up their insecurities instead of accepting them. However, there is another side to plastic surgery that could be considered the “good” side. Many individuals rely on plastic surgeons to look normal again after a bad wreck, losing a breast after cancer, or to fix problem areas that cause pain to other parts of the body.
Becoming an organ donor after death is not only an important decision for yourself, but it saves many lives after yours, it’s morally correct, and helps grieving family members. Organ donation is a great feat, it is giving the gift of life. According to organdonor.gov, “More than 125 million people have registered as organ donors, but only about 3 in 1,000 can actually become donors when they die.” If the amount of people that sign up could donate, then we would have a significant difference. To sign up to be an organ donor is a very simple process. The first step is to make the decision to donate, registering as a organ donor is a personal decision.
This is significant This is important because it explains to people how expensive plastic surgery is and how costly it can range from. Teens should not be allowed to have plastic surgery done. If they do not like the turnout of their surgery then it is a lot of money down the drain. Also take into account that all of the money within that range could be used for necessities for life instead of plastic surgery. Teens should not get plastic surgery because they are still growing, or they will pay too much in the end and might not like the
