Karina Matos Professor Gardner SSC.495- C 4 October 2012 Plastic Surgery & American Beauty at 1921 In Beth Haiken’s article “Plastic Surgery & American Beauty at 1921” argues that plastic surgery was mainly for women and that women weren’t able to get the surgery unless they had an injury or facial wound. The author believes that the main issue in the 1900s was many surgeons weren’t aware of side effects, who would be able to have work done, what the different types of surgery, and the effects of surgery on the society. The emphasis that the plastic surgery had on people was brought upon them when soldiers were getting facial wounds during WW1 and was becoming a medical phenomenon. Surgeons said that many people were reading
Other physicians who argue that placebos are unethical do not disagree they can help, but believe the patient should know what they are receiving. This debate over placebos will continue until there are laws forbidding the use of placebos without the patients consent. This is specifically why all countries need to act on making these laws. Making laws that pertain to the use of placebos will not only stop unethical use but also increase trust in physician-patient relationships and provide more means of safety for the patients. One of the biggest issues with physicians prescribing placebos is they are doing so without even telling their patients what it is.
Cartwright 1 Ashleigh Cartwright Ed Mashburn English 101 3 December 2008 Cosmetic Surgery: Beauty or the Beast? When it comes to the ups and downs of cosmetic surgery, a person should look closely at the procedure he or she is planning on having done. Even though each procedure has its own list of pros and cons, they can all be generalized for simplicity. Some of the most common disadvantages of cosmetic surgery are the risks and complications involved, the high price tag, and the fact that the end results can not be promised. When compared to the advantages though, they usually outweigh the disadvantages.
Erin Miller Discussing the Pros & Cons of the Article: The Ideal and the Real of Breast-Feeding Like the over all general consensus of the writer of this I article, I too agree that the “breast is best” argument is not as dire as some health officials are stating. The idea that not breast feeding is along the same lines as smoking during pregnancy seems ridiculous to me. I'm sure that we all know many people who were not solely breast-fed or not breast-fed at all that have grown up healthy. While there is some merit to the benefits of breast-feeding such as mother-child bonding, antibodies that may prevent gastrointestinal infections like vomiting and diarrhea, and breast milk being a whole lot cheaper than formula, that does not mean that any other option is not beneficial. Particularly in our society where a large majority of new mothers can't afford the time to solely breast-feed.
Research suggests that silicone is preferable to saline for use in breast augmentation, because clinical trials have found no link between silicone and autoimmune disorders, the higher-viscosity silicone is less likely to migrate into breast tissue if the product ruptures, and women by far are more pleased with the breast tissue feel of silicone. Baldwin, Jr., C. M., & Kaplan, E. N. (1983). Silicone-induced human adjuvant disease? Annuals of Plastic Surgery, 10: 270-273. (Since a portion of this thesis is discussion of the correlation of immunologically mediated disorders that silicone may or may cause this article explores this.
At age 48, Vivian is diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer by well-established physician Harvey Kelekian (Christopher Lloyd) depiction of unprofessional. He gets her to approve to aggressively harsh chemotherapy that will help serve his research agenda and to help appeal to the tightly scholarly commitment already in progress. The patient, Vivian Bearing, experienced several unprofessional behaviors from those providing her care. From one side of the walls of the special clinic where work professionals and well-qualified doctors, but from the other side we see absence of attention to patients only in the frames of university course. They speak only words, but no emotions and there is an absence of sympathy.
Montag received ten procedures of cosmetic surgery in one day and is a perfect example of a woman who feels more beautiful after her cosmetic surgery. According to CNN News Heidi Montag stated, "I was made fun of when I was younger, and so I had insecurities, especially after I moved to L.A. People said I had a ‘Jay Leno chin’; they'd circle it on blogs and say nasty things” (Heidi Montag Obsessed 1). In 2009 Montag received ten different procedures in which she got done all in one day. Due to Montag’s insecurities of her body and the need to pursue cosmetic surgery she caused tension between her family and herself, brought about negative media portrayal and a false sense of beauty with her family, the world, and her show. Heidi Montag was recently interviewed by television show and radio host, Ryan Seacrest.
Teen mothers are more likely to drop out of school, remain unmarried, and live in poverty, their children are more likely to be born at low birth weight, grow up poor, live in single-parent households, experience abuse and neglect, and enter the child welfare system. Daughters of teen mothers are more likely to become teen parents themselves and sons of teen mothers are more likely to be incarcerated (Hoffman, 2006). All of this can be linked to the teenager’s lack of access to care, fear and misinformation (Brown, 2010). Demographics Nationwide in 2006, 750,000 women younger than twenty became pregnant. The pregnancy rate was 71.5 pregnancies per 1,000 women aged 15–19.
But what truly causes it is a mystery that leaves scientists and doctors with just guesses and tests to do. Some people say that babies die of SIDS just from sleeping wrong. In 1994, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) had a “Back To Sleep” campaign that told parents to always put infants on their backs when sleeping. After that, the rate of SIDS went down by more than 50% (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services). Even with that drop in the death rate, SIDS is still responsible for about 3,000 deaths per year (“Sudden Infant Death” 1621).
The “Guttmacher Policy Review” reports that “abortion was listed as the official cause of death for almost 2,700 women in 1930.” (guttmacher.org) There were probably many more who did not show up in the statistics. They also point out that the death rate among women from abortion soared in Romania when the Ceausescu regime outlawed abortion in 1966 and dropped dramatically after Ceausescu was overthrown. (guttmacher.org) Making abortion illegal does not stop abortions and it ends up killing many women. Some countries like The Netherlands where abortion is free and legal have lower abortion rates than places like Peru where it is illegal.
