Scientists have a responsibility to use judgment in their work. To be “ethical” in scientific work means to conduct yourself according to certain guidelines or standards. Science isn’t just experiments and not everything is proven. Some things are opinion and some things are motivated by outside influences. Most people believe what they hear when a scientist or a study says its true. This story tells us that as students we should be skeptical while still respecting the field of science and know that scientists are real people just like us and can make errors just like we do.
There are many research methods scientists have used to figure out reasonable results to various questions or experiments. There have been many ethical concerns about the use of animals in experiments. Teachers and parents have opposed the fact that animals are being used a test subjects in schools. This led to the decrease of animals being used in experiments. The thought has been brought up that placebos can be used instead of the animals but the results may not be scientific and serious illnesses could be brought up. I think animals should be used instead because researchers need the most accurate results they can get and placebos would cause errors.
For many of the results/findings scientists make, lead to other issues. Scientists who make a finding are rewarded with increased funding. This tempts the scientists to exaggerate their results to make people believe they’re right. These scientists are making people believe what they came up with is safe when it really isn’t 100% positively true and can cause many to become sick or have other issues. I think the scientists should think about how they’re affecting other people and start being honest with everyone about their results so no other issues will be brought up. Scientists are the ones who should be completely honest.
When a new finding is made one scientist gets the credit for it. This leads to another issue. Scientists...
