The Nestlé Corporation has behaved unethically by manipulating breastfeeding mothers into using their formula, allowing slavery in the production of their goods, and exploiting the current drought in California. A major scandal for the Nestlé Corporation was when it was revealed that they pushed their baby formula onto breastfeeding mothers, with negative effects. Nestlé was accused of targeting new mothers from poor countries. They did this by giving out free samples to hospitals and having their representatives wear nurse uniforms to aggressively push the formula onto the mothers. They claimed that their formula was, “so like mother’s milk that the tiny stomach won’t notice the difference” (Andrei 2).
Some examples are that for the past several years we have heard that polio vaccine lead lymphoma and caused the AIDS epidemic, and the MMR vaccine lead to Crohn’s disease and autism. These theories, however have not bothered themselves with facts, that might be fair in the time of chiropractic’s infancy, but now, in the 20th century it is not acceptable. The lack of true information about vaccination is a struggle to the vaccination policy. A research by Kennedy et al. shows that health professionals consider that girls are empowered to make decisions about the HPV vaccine for themselves, some of them decide not to take the vaccine for the lack of information.
Introduction The key ethical issues that were presented in this case study were quality control, lack of customer care, responsiveness, and harming the customer. The Johnson and Johnson case may have been seen as a turning point due to many things the company did right. However, there were many ethical issues in this case which will be explored more throughout this paper. Background The situation that was presented to us occurred in September of 1982, where seven people in the Chicago area were killed when they ingested Tylenol, a painkiller produced by Johnson and Johnson. The Tylenol that ended up killing the seven had been laced with cyanide, but the extent of the damage and whether it was internal or external was not known for several weeks.
Surrogacy has always been an ethical problem worldwide since it involves a third party to be able to create a baby. There are two types of surrogacy; gestational and traditional. In both of these cases the father donates the sperm. In traditional surrogacy the surrogate mother’s eggs are used through artificial insemination and in gestational surrogacy the mother also donates the egg while the surrogate mother works as an incubator for the fertilized egg. Infertility occurs when the egg is unable to be successfully fertilized by the male sperm due to low sperm count, obesity, premature menopause and other factors such as sexually transmitted diseases..
That said, 2003 was a particularly difficult year for the Indian arm of Coca-Cola, with 2004 shaping up to be similarly onerous. Coca-Cola faced negative press over issues as diverse as contamination; anti-Iraq-war protests; alleged environmental degradation; and, as 2003 came to a close, an alleged sexual-harassment case involving a senior company executive and a former Miss Universe with whom the company had previously had a product-endorsement contract. The Plachimada issue has now returned to haunt the company and follows a barrage of bad press over the bottling plant.

Although there is always two sides to every argument and other people have a different opinion on the matter. One of the other sides leading arguments is
Agent Orange’s use by the United States affected Vietnam in a negative way economically, demographically, and ecologically. Agent Orange had many negative effects, especially with the contamination of water sources and the disruption to the balance of the ecosystem. Even today, the Vietnamese population is still feeling the effects of the outrageous chemical. In fact, the agent can bond with a component in a person’s cells and the genes get passed down from generation to generation. This is a scary discovery when it comes to the lives of thousands of people.
The recent demand for illicit drugs would have never happened. Not only this, but the consequences of using an illegal drug are boundless. It can negatively impact a users health which can often lead to sickness or disease. It can also cause permanent, physical, or emotional damage to the users and negatively impact their families and anyone else they have come in contact with.
