Her cowriter, unaware of this fraud, supports Imanishi-Kiri by making strong and hostile statements defending Imanishi-Kiri to the NIH investigating board, damaging his own credibility. Dr. Baltimore ended up resigning as president of Rockefeller University, because of this incident. If Baltimore had actually enforced his ideas about fraud and misconduct and had given Imanishi-Kiri a set of moral guidelines, the situation may have turned out differently. The deliberate misconduct, as exhibited in “the Baltimore case”, is only one type of scientific transgression. The other type is negligence.
Carson provides rational examples to show the harm that pollution is causing to the earth and pests. Carson states, “Can any one believe it is possible to lay down such a barrage of poisons on this earth without making it unfit for all life?” (605). Rachel Carson is trying to prove that spraying chemicals is not relevant because it causes harm to nature and anything else that comes in contact with the chemicals itself. Carson uses this scientific observation to prove that the cycle is continuous; all it is doing is causing more harm. As is it perceived, Carson feels passionately toward the environment and wants her audience to feel the same way.
Professor Cynthia Tompkins Spanish 472 11 October 2012 Guatemalan Syphilis Experiment If I had suggested that the U.S. government had probably done syphilis experimentation on people other than the Tuskegee experiments on unsuspecting American black men, American statists would undoubtedly respond, “Conspiracy theory! Conspiracy theory! It is inconceivable that our government would do such a thing.” What’s interesting about statists, however, is that when it turns out that government officials really did conspire to do horrific things to people, the statists are never surprised. Sure enough, it turns out that federal officials did conspire to commit syphilis experiments, not just at Tuskegee but also on unsuspecting prisoners in Guatemalan jails. The experiments took place in 1948 and just came to light, thanks to a researcher who discovered the experiments in notes kept by one of the federal officials involved in the Tuskegee experiment.
Psychologist Diana Baumrind considered the experiment "harmful because it may cause permanent psychological damage and cause people to be less trusting in the future. " Australian psychologist Gina Perry examined Milgram's methodology, using original data from the Yale archives in her 2013 book Behind the Shock Machine: The Untold Story of the Notorious Milgram Psychology Experiments. Perry claims that Milgram's experiments and conclusions are flawed because he intentionally downplayed or ignored critical data that failed to support his thesis.

White’s view on the barbaric heart promotes our own self-benefit, which links to Tarter’s view of living downstream. However, Tarter emphasizes that science is needed for our environment to be more sustainable, while White opposes to this with his radical view that science is the cause of the many barbaric acts. Tarter’s view of the factors that cause our environment to deteriorate is indirectly reflected in White’s idea that destruction of the environment is destruction towards ourselves. One point that Tarter focuses on is how Human Exploitation vs Environment Exploitation are the causes for most of our diseases today, but especially of cancer (Tarter 824). White’s response to this exploitation would be positive, because he would say that yes our environment is being destroyed and that the use of all chemicals causes our air and health to weaken.
This is one of the main scientific concerns because the experiment was carried out on a child who was not physically and mentally healthy, thus the results acquired were not very reliable and accurate as compared to if a normal healthy child was experimented on. (Weiten, 2011). Ethical Concerns (Flanagan,2001;154) "Ethics are a set of moral principles used by professionals, such as doctors. Ethical issues include damage to individuals, questions regarding privacy and also damage to the profession." The first and foremost ethical concern about this experiment was that Watson used the boy as an experimental subject without taking into consideration the possible ill effects.
Are drug companies that test experimental drugs in foreign countries acting Ethically? To an Utilitarian theorist testing medications in outside nations would turn out to be not ethical. Utilitarianism tell us that we should always do or follow an action that generates the greatest happiness for whoever is affected by the act. In utilitarianism one must consider all outcomes of a particular activity, and then act if and only if that action maximizes utility for all affected. Drug companies that test trial medications in foreign nations are not acting ethically.
Taking in the situation and seeing that “Sycamore Pharmaceuticals to come under fire for promoting its popular rheumatoid arthritis drug, Osteoporin, for the treatment of other diseases like Crohn’s disease and lupus”. (Daft, R.L.) John Blake, a worker of Sycamore Pharmaceuticals, is faced with telling the truth to the Food and Drug Administration or to continue to lie for the company. There are many things I would suggest to John Blake and the first thing would to be honest with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) because keeping your morals straight will also look better. It is possible for John to be penalized or he could lose his employment with the company.
Marketing and advertising is the act that puts this together for them, it is the vail they put on our society while they do what pleases them and fills their pockets behind closed doors. This is the false consciousness they have created in our minds. During the film The Corporation, we go through the Personality Diagnostic Checklist from the World Health Organization icd-10. If we look at all the personality aspects of a corporation and the moral direction of their values and decisions, according to the checklist a corporation is a Psychopath. They have no moral consciousness, no concern for the feelings of others, they only care about one thing: how to make as much money
Dr.Jeyll kept his information hidden because he didn't want people to find out about he has found. He was frightened on how people would react if they did found out the truth. The scientists in the article were unsure of how to control or use the data. Just like Dr.Jekyll did not know how to control Mr. Hyde from hurting people. When Doctors are Their Own Best Guinea Pigs This article is about how two scientists who won Nobel Prizes in Medicine suspected that Bacteria that were in Biopsies cause stomach inflammation and ulcers.
