The mother could also become permanently sterile and may never be able to bear a child. Abortions not only kill the baby, they can the mother too. During an abortion, despite the use of anesthesia, 97% of the women report severe pain, and more powerful drugs are used she could suffer dangerous side effects that could be fatal. Some other complications after abortions are inflammation of the reproductive organs. As well, there is strong evidence that abortion increases the risk of breast cancer.
It took me a while to piece together all the information. Many people are infected by the flu, plagues, measles, and many more illness or diseases per year. There is not much people can do to not get sick; but at the hospital there is, and that would be washing your hands. Even though some don’t, doctors should always be washing their hands because they are the ones carrying diseases from patient to patient (Gawande 344). If a doctor sees a patient who has the flu, and doesn’t wash his before he goes to see his next patient, that patient may also get the flu.
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among women. This type of cancer is ranked the second cause of death in woman. The best way to detect cancer of the breast is a mammogram. A Mammogram is an x-ray imagine used to screen for breast cancer. Mammograms play a very important role in breast cancer detection and helps decrease breast caner deaths .
A simple snap of a mammogram wouldn’t be able to capture the shot of how the cancer or tumor looks like, or where it spreader through your breast. The 3-d ultra sound would improve early detection of breast cancer by building an ultrasound scanner that can image the entire breast thus standardizing ultrasound breast imaging to provide high quality images improving detection of no palpable breast cancers that cannot be seen with mammography in women at high risk of breast cancer, especially in women with dense breasts. In the remainder of this passage I am going to discuss more about this 3-d ultrasound research. The unique way of catching cancer or tumors before they enlarge. 3-d ultra sounds are very suitable for any woman with breast pains and unusual feelings in the
Pros of Designer Babies Genetic screening can reduce the baby's chances of being born with several serious diseases like Down Syndrome, Famial hypercholesterolemia, rare blood disorders such as Diamond Blackfan Anaemia, etc. Adam Nash was the world's first known designer baby born by the revolutionary pre-implantation process in the year 2000. Scientists genetically selected his embryo so that he would possess the right cells to save his dying sister's life. His sister suffered from Fanconi's anaemia (blood disorder), and mostly the chances of Adam getting that disorder was also very high. An embryo was chosen, which did not have Fanconi's anaemia.
But in recent studies these chemicals have caused health problems such as Liver cancer, fertility problems and other developmental issues in humans and animals. (So basically the dispersants are working but once they do their job, they are sinking to the bottom of the ocean and making things worse) Environmental groups attempted to obtain information regarding the structure of ingredients in Corexit through the Freedom of Information Act but were denied by the EPA. The EPA later released a list of all 57 chemicals in the 14 dispersants on the EPA’s National Contingency Plan Product Schedule after Earth Justice sued on behalf of the Gulf Restoration Network 5 are associated with cancer, 33 are related to skin irritation that is anywhere from rashes to severe burns, 12 with eye irritation and 7 with kidney/respiratory toxins and all are toxic to aquatic life. As you can see in these pictures it is devastating to wild life. Some immediate impacts consist of oil coated bird feathers causing birds to lose their buoyancy and the ability to regulate body temperature.
There are two vaccines (Gardisil and Cervaix) that are given to year 8 girls to prevent HPV. “This vaccine is said to save an estimate of 400 women each year .” A pathogen is a biological agent that causes diseases or illness to its host A cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues. Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph system. Cancer is a problem to body because it can spread and then takes over parts of the body that carries out essential functions A vaccine protects your body from specific diseases that make you become very ill, disabled or even kill you. The way the HPV vaccine works is by using an inactive form of the virus.
Colon Cancer Risk Assessment Steven L. McClain SCI/162 December 17, 2011 Jessica Broome Colon Cancer Risk Assessment Colon cancer also known as colorectal cancer is cancer of large intestine, which is the lower part of the digestive system. Colon cancer usually begins as small non-cancerous bumps (adenomatous polyps) and over time can become cancerous. According to the Center for Disease Control (2010)“Of cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and the third most common cancer in men and in women.” Also the Center for Disease Control states that “the risk of getting colorectal cancer increases with age and is greater in men than in women.” (Center for Disease Control, 2010). The following information was retrieved from the Mayo Clinic Some signs of colon cancer are: • A change in bowel habits such as diarrhea or constipation. • Rectal bleeding or blood in the stool.
Correspondingly selective abortion based on genetic abnormalities is overt discrimination. People with physical limitations are not to be perceived as any less human than able people. Moreover if the fetus is beyond 20 weeks of gestation then in fact it will feel severe and excruciating pain and may also cause psychological damage to the women. A study published
Infection- This is an invasion by and multiplication of pathogenic, micro-organisms in a bodily part or tissue which could cause harm. Infections can be spread with ease, poor practice is the main reason for spread of infection. Examples of poor practices are not washing your hands regularly, hand washing should be done thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, followed by hand-drying with a paper towel. Another example of poor practice is not covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze. You should always get vaccinated and always use safe methods of cooking and preparing food.
