My theory also is that eventually people will start bidding on artificial organs and the richer people will have say over a family that doesn't have a lot of money. If doctors wanted to replace original organs with artificial ones, it would take a lot of perfecting and obligating a clean bill of health for the patient. Who, if anyone, should be a prime candidate for these types of artificial/synthetic replacements? Do you feel that anyone should have access to them? Even a life-long smoker or alcoholic who knowingly subjected themselves to harmful substances?
With the rise of tanning bed usage in the last decade, being dark is now something that is a must to have that perfect look regardless of its negative effects. Most daily tanners ingore the fact that someday you will deal with premature aging, developing tanorexia and the most important, increases your chances of melanoma dramatically. People using the tanning bed for cosmetic purposes often ignore the effect of tanning on the skin after prolonged use. Exposure to UV radiation often causes photoaging, premature aging of the skin. Constant exposure to these rays will eventually result in a leathery appearance of the skin.
This increasing trend of cosmetic surgeries in America attribute to media and famous public figures who promote cosmetic surgery as corrective surgery. Teenagers believe that their appearance has to be flawless, similar with celebrities as a result about 326,000 teenagers had plastic surgery in 2004. The author suggests that it’s the parent’s responsibility to teach their children about the damages of cosmetic surgery, also parents should not support their children by paying the bills for unnecessary plastic surgery. Teenagers are not well informed about the damages of cosmetic surgeries consequently they put their lives are at high risk. Teenagers only focus on the cosmetic aspect of the procedures they desire, and forget that it is actually a surgery.
This drug significantly reduced cholesterol from 40 percent to 72 percent when given at two-week intervals. It was also given at four-week intervals but the effects were not nearly as significant. However, “Six patients, all receiving REGN727, stopped the therapy due to adverse events which included headache, injection site reactions, and diarrhea” (Curley, Ann, CNN, 2012). Those side effects would likely scare anyone. That is why the government needs to step in and offer a grant for these companies to dig deeper into their studies and come up with something that has less side effects.
For instance, some of the celebrities such as Goldie Hawn and Greta Van Susteren may look astonishing for their age, but what the media fails to portray is the fact that their natural, youthful appearance is anything but natural at all. According to Bordo, she points out that Susan Surandon looked older in Thelma and Louise than she does in her movies today. Cosmetic surgery has been a known yet hidden secret of celebrities for years. Nevertheless, Bordo clarifies that cosmetic procedures are becoming a common procedure for many non-celebrities today who wish to prolong or create unblemished looks. She tries to get this point across by stating that "Aging beautifully used to mean wearing one's years with style, confidence, and vitality.
According to a medico health solution analysis of customer data, the use of behavioral medication for children topped all the areas of drugs in 2003. America might be a developed country but there are only a seven thousand of children psychiatric hospitals and a small number of specialized doctors for those cases. Most of the diagnosis are made by teachers of schools or unspecialized doctors after strange behavior at schools. Because of this unprofessional attitude, kids are prescribed medication with long-term side effect that can even lead to overmedication or worst, death.

If women were to step out of their own determined “role” they’re then automatically considered as outcasts by society. For example, if a woman doesn’t uphold the correct expected feminine figure or appearance and they happen to have more of a masculine feature, people inevitably assume that they’re a “lesbian” or “transgendered”. In conclusion society just isn’t embracing individuality or differences, which is what everyone needs. Society itself needs to get over what they think is right and to let others act the way they
It came back a year later that only 60% of these children that were treated were successful, while the rest failed, but it is stated that this medication is not for everyone and does have severe side effects. Some of the side effects are that of more sleep for the medicated, where as the unmediated can get less sleep. With Ritalin a child can become more depressed, but the pro would be the ability to focus more in school. In my personal opinion, you can medicate a child to death, but you need to understand the cause of the behavioral problem, before you can remove the cause. Just proving a child with medicine but not really knowing for what is not the answer.
The solutions mankind has created to each one of our distastes is alarming, with the blink of an eye, soon we will all look alike. Plastic surgery removes individual cultural ties all Americans have in their ancestry and replaces them with a newly developed norm, one that these people try to suit themselves to. The westernizing of Asian eyes is a very simple procedure in which they establish a crease in the upper and lower lid of the eye(Meronk).

This may be true, but many would argue that we play God every day by changing our hair color, exercising or even taking medication. With eugenics legal, we would no longer have the need for medications that could improve long-term problems. Medication can be deadly and result in addiction and even death. With that said, eliminating medication could result in fewer fatalities due to drugs. People also argue that it’s like opening Pandora’s Box, suggesting that there is trial and error.
