DDT breakdown products were found in 99% of people tested by CDC. Health impacts, such as in girls who were exposed to DDT before puberty are five times more likely to develop breast cancer in middle age according to the President’s Cancer Panel. DDT can also cause pregnant women who are exposed to DDT to likely give birth prematurely or low birth rate babies. Conclusion: DDT is highly effective at killing mosquitoes that carry malaria but the damage that it does is far too great causing the environment to suffer and people’s health and animals health to be affected greatly over time. I don’t believe that DDT is healthy nor should it ever be legal in the United
Now people want to ban the all Pit Bull mixes or any dog that could be mistaken for a Pit Bull. But by using breed specific legislation would be wrong because you would be taking innocent dogs away from their loving family. So I say Pit bulls should not be banned for their behavior when they are trained to be aggressive and short tempered. The American Pit Bull Terrier is well known for superior intelligence,strength and loyalty. in recent years this breed has been mis advertised as violent and vicious.
Unfortunately in order to provide fact from myth, distinct proof is necessary for valid action to be taken place. Now this being said, I do believe his theory of cancer being related to unnatural causes; its been proven that many diseases and issues have been caused by humans infectious ways. Cancer in any form is deadly and typically unavoidable, however with Tarters essay it would give an entire new perspective on how the human race fights cancer. His essay gives people a chance, before they become afflicted such as himself and those around him (his
One reason dogs should not be allowed in the workplace is because they are a distraction. In the article “No I do not Want to Pet your Dog” Farhad Manjoo states”A half-dozen people were crowding around him cooing and petting”. Instead of working people would be petting all the dogs that are at their work. Bosses will not pay people who just sit around all day pet dogs and do no work. “The dog is sure to come around you get between your legs, rub against your thigh, take a nap on your feet.” Farhad Manjoo, “No I do not Want to Pet your Dog”.
Out of 93 side effects only 19% of them could be predicted from the testing of animals (“Cruelty”). This fact shows how animals and humans are extremely different. Since animals have all of the same organs as humans do, they could be susceptible to some of the same illnesses as we can get. Mice and rats testing drugs in humans are accurate 43%, that’s less than half of the time (“Cruelty”). Paul Furlong Professor of Clinical Neuroimaging at Aston University says "it's very hard to create an animal model that even equates closely to what we're trying to achieve in the human."
Dog bans have been a controversial issue in modern years. Some believe that action needs to be made to protect humans from certain aggressive dog breeds and others believe that attacks result from poor care. The author of “Dog Ban Only Solution to Attacks” expresses his opinion on supporting the bans. He supports this using several cases of anecdotal evidence and quotes, and tends to get emotional in several paragraphs. The article wasn’t very well written in my personal opinion and I disagree with his support for banning specific dog breeds.
The reason this has become a wide debate is due the greatnumber of stake holders that is; parents, doctors, nurses, and the community in general. Mostadvocates say that the decision to vaccinate themselves or their children must ultimatelydepend on them and their judgement. While healthcare officials oppose this on the groundsthat making vaccination mandatory we could protect the children and others from diseasesthat are vaccine preventable. The debate comes down to concept of risk aversion and howrisky vaccines really are. Through my speech I hope to convince you that mandating vaccinesis beneficiary to individuals, the society and the economy.I would now like to elaborate on why I believe vaccines should be made mandatory.An individual who chooses not to take a vaccination affects not only themselves but also thesociety.
claim 2- Drugs that pass animal tests are not necessarily safe. Evidence - For example, the 1950s sleeping pill thalidomide, which caused around 10,000 babies to be born with severe deformities, was tested on animals prior to its release. That was tests on pregnant mice, rats, guinea pigs, cats, and hamsters did not result in birth defects unless the drug was at extremely high doses.Animal tests on the arthritis drug Vioxx showed that it had a protective effect on the hearts of mice, yet the drug went on to cause more than 27,000 heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths before being pulled from the market. Now, do you believe we share the same DNA with animals? Refutation - yes, some of this products do work, but would you want to risk it?
it has been tested for possible side effect on animals such as rats. Even more frightening, these animals were later sacrificed and gutted for tests on their organs ("898. Butylhydroquinone, Tert...”). In some places, animal testing is required before putting new additives into foods. This requires the ‘torturing’ of animals and most likely the killing of them.
