Antibiotics only treat infections caused by bacteria and not illnesses caused by viruses. The doctor finds prescribing antibiotics to be the easiest way to take care of a patient instead of treating the infection or illness. Many people believe that antibiotics are the cure for every infection or disease; however that couldn’t be farther from the truth. We should encourage the doctors to prescribe medications to treat illness and only resort to antibiotics when other prescriptions fail. Improper use of antibiotics is the primary cause of drug-resistant bacteria.

the article "What You Eat Is Your Business" (2004), author Radley Balko suggests that instead of having the Government control what people eat, the people should take it upon themselves to having a "sense of responsibility and ownership for personal health and well being” (158). Balko supports his claims with the socialized healthcare system in America; all the medicine for health problems related to obesity is paid for, leaving the unhealthy individual with nothing to worry about. The author’s purpose is to convince the reader that these measures are not efficient and that the government needs to foster the people into taking responsibility of one’s own health and not anyone else’s. The article by Balko is trying to address everyone about
Doctors for example, would take preventative measures to help the individual that he/she is dealing with. If the patient isn’t getting better then it looks bad on the doctor as he isn’t doing everything he can to ensure the patient is getting better. An example of this would be for a patient to stop smoking.

Then the doctor has done everything he can to try to get the patient to stop smoking.

They can involve some comfort and pain, but this is what I would rather me and my children go through, rather than being sick with a disease that can be fatal. A person may have an allergic reaction to a vaccination, but this is a very rare side effect. Before child/children receive a vaccine their parents receive brochures that explain the side effects that are possible and explain the benefits to having that vaccine.

In this paper, I summarize the article, present comments on the highlights of the article and suggest where additional research findings would be of use in improving the sexuality of ill elderly adults.

All those negative attitudes of the society prevented the ill elderly from acknowledging their sexuality as a healthy and important part of life. ‘Sexuality is described as one of the most natural and basic aspects of life that affects an individual’s identity as a human being.

It is important to focus on the main health disparities the minority faces prior to choosing the best prevention. Taking into account cancer, diabetes, obesity and unintentional deaths, along with remote locations and limited access to healthcare, it could best be said that a combination approach of both primary and secondary prevention be taken towards the AI/ANs population. This allows a focus to prevent and educate along with focusing and maintaining the diseases already in motion. This is found to be most effective for most health care providers ("Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Prevention,"
While the government works to form regulations to aid the vulnerable population, many people feel that this is an infringement upon their basic rights. Beneficence is the act of doing well for the sake of others; the state is doing exactly that because they are protecting populations from harming themselves and others as it pertains to obesity. The Stewardship Model is a model that allows people to maintain their autonomy while still aiding in efforts to decrease obesity. The Stewardship Model states that public health programs should “attempt to reduce risks for obesity that populations might impose on each other and reduce cause for obesity through legislation or regulation that creates environmental conditions that sustain good health (e.g. access to healthy food and opportunities to be physically active” (Kersh, Stroup, & Taylor, 2011, p.1).
