Even though parents cannot predict the life span of their children lives they can make mindful decision to enforce the procedures in protecting their lives child’s life. Vaccinations are in place to save children’s lives from life threatening diseases such as polio and etcetera. Parents should make sure that their children are receiving vaccinations to save their lives
Because vaccines are highly controversial, it is important to understand how they work and to then weigh the benefits versus the risks. People receive vaccinations or refuse to get vaccinations without the understanding of what vaccines are or how they work. “A vaccine is a product that produces immunity from a disease and can be administered through
Sandel state that certain prenatal tests can “detect genetic abnormalities” and have the ability to determine the sex of the fetus. These tests allow for a parent to choose the sex of their child by taking a couple of fertilized eggs and look at the sex and check for the possibility of defective flaws. The parents choose the perfect egg and get rid of the imperfect ones (Sandel). Just like the paraphrase above, this shows if it takes a significant amount of embryos and fetus’ to find one perfect child, then the situation goes from parents looking for a child to a situation of murder to many unborn children. That is extremely inhumane, especially if it is a parent just looking for one specific
It helps infertile couple to have a baby of their own (with their own eggs and sperm) 2. Unless donor egg or donor sperm is used, the DNA will be that of intended parents only The Disadvantages of IVF are: 1. IVF can result in undesired multiple births i.e delivery of more than 1 baby. This is more likely in ivf treatment than naturally because clinics and doctors tend to transfer more than 1 embryo in the womb so that the chances of successful delivery is higher 2. IVF can result in Overian Hyperstimulation Syndrome.
Thalassemia is the most common inherited disorder in the world that represents a major public concern. It is characterized by a defect in the genes responsible for production of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a protein that consists of alpha and beta chains. If the genetic mutations prevent any formation of beta chains then beta-thalassemia occurs which involves abnormal development of red blood cells and eventually anemia (1, 2). Children born with thalassemia major are normal at birth, but develop severe anemia during the first year of life.
However, the pill went on to cause more than 10,000 babies to be born with birth defects (Science). Thousands of babies had deformities because tests on hamsters and rats showed the pill to be effective. Additionally, “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 25,000 heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths before being pulled from the market” (Vioxx). Animal testing is extremely misleading in the medical field. Scientists attempt to link the results of testing drugs on animals to its effectiveness on humans.
Many people may think that vaccination is a bad thing, that instead of preventing it causes illness, that is not natural. Natural or not, there are many reasons as to why we should vaccinate us and the younger generation. Most of the time children don’t like vaccination because it hurt, but is the responsibility of a parent to seek the wellbeing of his or her child. Vaccination it’s a preventive measure of various diseases. Unfortunately, things like the anti-vaccination movement, the misinformation on the Internet, and the believe that vaccination causes more damage than is worth, have led our society to think that it’s right not to vaccinate.
It occurs mainly in individuals aged between 20 and 60 years; However, there are also the peaks between the elderly and children. This abdominal hernia variant mainly affects males: is it estimated that men are affected from 7 to 10 times more than women. The congenital inguinal hernia usually occurs during early childhood due to a lack of occlusion of the duct peritoneum vaginal, a canaliculus present in the fetal stage used for the migration of the testicle from its original location (the lumbar region, near the kidneys down) to the scrotum . the acquired inguinal hernia is an expression of a progressive weakening of the abdominal muscles in the vicinity of 'groin: the muscle scaffold failure is favored by overweight, age, type of heavy work, pregnancy , excessive stress or metabolic disorders (abnormalities of the collagen ). inguinal hernia may be painful or not: the extent of the pain increases if the herniation compresses an area rich in nerve
However Human cloning is dangerous for the new engineered baby and their moms, so it should be banned to prevent new disease, to constantly limit the population of dying human beings, and to stop unnecessary fees to modify babies. During the process of human cloning when the scientists try to change the genes they will create new and undetected disease
Introduction Vaccines are known to be a crucial means of maintaining population health, although many people are against being and/or getting their children vaccinated. A vaccination typically consists of a low-dose or synthetic virus strains injected into the body such that one will develop an immune response to that specific pathogen. In the case that a person contracts the virus in the future, their immune system will be able to recognize it and act faster, thus killing the invader. The war on vaccines escalated in 1998 when a false claim was made that the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine was linked to colitis (inflammation of the colon) and autism spectrum disorders. The untrue claim was subsequently published in The Lancet and the news became public.
Haemophilia is very hard to identify if someone is a carrier, the genetic disease will remain dormant until it is passed onto the offspring. There are many ways that Haemophilia can be identified or diagnosed in a patient. When an infant goes through circumcision, if prolonged bleeding continues after the circumcision occurs, that may be the first indication of haemophilia in a baby boy. In boys who aren 't circumcised, easy bruising when the child becomes more mobile may lead to the diagnosis. The first episode of bleeding generally occurs by the time a child is 2 years old.
Some parents might argue that vaccines are not safe, and that by the government forcing parents to vaccinate their children, they are harming their children. Skeptical parents may thing that vaccines are not safe due to autism being linked to vaccines in some rare cases. On the contrary, vaccines are actually very safe and effective, “Vaccines are only given to children after a long and careful review by scientists, doctors, and healthcare professionals… The disease-prevention benefits of getting vaccines are much greater than the possible side effects for almost all children,” (vaccines.org). By having healthcare professions carefully examine the child to make sure he or she is ready for the vaccine shows how much they care about the safety and welfare of your child. Concluding that healthcare professionals are using safe treatments on your child.
However, the premutation gene is more common in girls than boys (Skomorowsky). If a person carries the premutation gene and does not pass the affected X chromosome to their offspring, that person can still have other complications or problems. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute, “Males who have a premutation...are at risk for fragile X associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS).” Other complications that can occur when you carry the premutation are: fibromyalgia, thyroid disease, hypertension, neuropathy and premature ovarian failure
Whether it be for MMR or simply the flu, children should be vaccinated. Science has come a long way to be able to prevent diseases. Without vaccinating children, it is like they are living in the dark ages with how susceptible they are to diseases (Hibberd). So many people are trapped inside a mindset that has a negative connotation towards the vaccines. If vaccines were truly so bad then doctors would not be urging them on as greatly as they are
As a result of vaccination, antibodies will be produced that attack the weakened virus without infection occurring as it would with natural infection. The antibodies will remain in the body and when exposure to the virus occurs the immune system will have a memory of how to fight it in the future. Despite the biological benefits of vaccinations, there is still debate on this topic. It is important that we understand where people 's doubts about vaccines lie and if they are valid or not. The main concerns people have with vaccines are that they are believed to be unsafe, ineffective and unnecessary, but is this
