Give two reasons why the use of phage therapy was controversial, and eventually abandoned in the West. a. Phage therapy was controversial in part because doctors testing phage on patients was done without controls and, in many cases, on self-limiting conditions. It was unclear if bacterial diseases were being cured because of surgical procedure, the phage, or a combination of the two. Control groups were never established, and the phage phenomenon quickly found itself without any scientific research backing it. b.

Kass-Bartelmes & Hughes (2003) identified the lack of communication between the patients, family members, and healthcare providers. Information given was too complicated to understand which in turn causes confusion about treatments available. Similarly, different research expressed the need for early discussion when the patients are still healthy although the doctors may find it difficult and uncomfortable initiating the conversation leading to missed opportunities. However, it can instil hope if it is carried out delicately (Ng,
The speech, Mr. Wiesel showed to the audience that he knows of these events firsthand because he shared his own personal suffering and established ethos by telling the story in first person. He argued about the guilt of past violent events and proclaimed that said events could have been avoided if humanity had been less indifferent. He stated that had someone have intervened earlier, these events could have been avoided. Nonetheless, Mr. Wiesel still showed gratitude to those who intervened and fought those responsible for the hardship of himself and his people. However, he still did not understand why they did not do an intervention at an earlier time to avoid the suffering of thousands of people.
Jawaharlal Nehru once said that “Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit.” This is the case in the story “The Medicine Bag” by Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve. When Martin, the protagonist became more and more involved in his culture he learned more about it and he gained more character along his journey. Maria on the other hand had been in touch with her culture for the entirety of the story and had respected the traditions that they had celebrated. Because these two stories had different types of plot structures, they are surrounded by different environments, have different types of relationships with their grandparents, and have differing views on their cultural heritage. The characters Martin and Maria are both surrounded by
My Experience with DIabetes Many people in the United States are plagued with the disease that is Diabetes, according to a study done last year there are approximately 29.1 million people in the United States that currently have diabetes. So this is where my story begins, in the summer of 2012 my family started to notice a significant change in my health and appearance. I was rapidly losing weight and no one was quite sure why. After two weeks and the disappearance of 30 pounds of weight off my body, my parents decided that it would be a good idea to have me go to the health clinic down the street to get some blood work done to see if it could be diabetes or if i had maybe just started to hit puberty and it was my body changing and adjusting.
Unfortunately, doctor assisted suicide is not legal in the patient’s state, and he must suffer through his existence for one more month, if he’s lucky. Several states have already seen the benefits of a “death with dignity” law, such as Colorado, Oregon, California, and others. Doctor assisted suicide is a right that belongs to any mentally sane patient, because nobody should have to suffer through the pain of terminal illness, drive their family into poverty, and then die anyways. Cancer treatment, while vital to a patient who doesn’t have six months to live, is very expensive. In the article written by Matt Mauney, “Costs of Chemotherapy Treatment”, Mauney researched the costs of various cancer treatments, in order to give cancer patients an expectation of how much treatment will cost them.

This is a story of triumph and tragedy. The tragedy was seeing a ten year old boy, burning with fever, who died after drifting in and out of consciousness for three days. I can still recall the intolerable pain of his mother on the loss of her only child. I was a teenager then and had accompanied my father to a free medical camp in a remote village near Lahore. Touched by that incident, I decided to arrange a campaign for malaria prevention and collected donations for free medications and mosquito nets.
It also found that there was not enough content to push young people to adopt positive approaches towards health information and health policies. One of the strongest points that emerged from the investigation was that few journalists are dedicated health reporters and majority of African media had no newsroom policy to sustain health coverage, and therefore relied heavily on event-related coverage to generate health news. The study also revealed loop holes in communication and coordination between the media and policy makers on public health
