  • Cancer - 1,487 words
    Cancer Introduction According to Mollet, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Estimates for 1982 indicate that 430,000 Americans will have died of some form of cancer. If national trends continue, some fifty-three million Americans now alive will contract cancer sometime during their lifetime. Of this inverse number, approximately one-half will die of cancer despite a medical effort to cure and prevent cancer (300). Although 45 percent of the detected cases of serious cancer are curable, an increase of 5 percent in the last ten years, it is obvious that measures can be taken to increase the cure rate and also prevent onset of various cancers. Clark suggested that ...

    ... Bibliography Of all the diseases and viruses that are known to man, no other can strike fear in so many peoples hearts, as the word cancer. What is cancer? Cancer is a new growth of tissue resulting from a continuous proliferation of abnormal cells that have the ability to invade and destroy other tissues.1 Cancer may be found in any type of cell or tissue in the human body. Cancer is not found in just humans, but also in animals and plants. Cancer cells can grow where ever normal cells grow or divide. Cancer is not one disease but many single diseases classified under one name.2 In our bodies we produce many thousands of new cells everyday. We produce these cell in order to grow until ...

  • Cloning - 659 words
    Cloning Nicole Pluta November 29, 1998 Scientific experimentation has led us to many great discoveries such as: Chemotherapy, heart surgery, and bone marrow transplants. Recently scientists have discovered a new way to heal humans. This is known as cloning. Although they have yet to clone a human they have cloned sheep. Cloning has brought up a huge controversy among the American people. There are two sides to the story. Either you agree with cloning or you dont. The only way to help make that decision is to look at the good and bad points of cloning. There are many positive aspects of human and non-human cloning. Human cloning technology could be used to reverse the number one killer in the ...

  • In The Two Articles, Heloisa Sabin And Peggy Carlson Argued On The Issue About Animal Testing There Does Not Seem To Be Any A - 784 words
    In the two articles, Heloisa Sabin and Peggy Carlson argued on the issue about animal testing. There does not seem to be any agreement between the two writers, while there is an obvious disagreement between them. Sabin agrees to Animal Testing: Animal research saves human lives but Carlson disagrees: Animal tests are unreliable. Animal testing is quite an arguable topic in the world. In Sabins article, she stated the example of her husband using polio vaccine as her persuasion as he was one that benefited a lot from the outcome of animal testing. Her husband, Albert Sabin, inventor of oral polio vaccine, told a reporter before his death in 1993, There could have been no oral polio vaccine wi ...

  • The Immortality Switch: - 1,333 words
    THE IMMORTALITY SWITCH: TURNING TELOMERASE FUNCTIONALITY ON AND OFF Abstract: A role of telomeres in the aging process and cancer has long been known to exist. Furthermore, telomerase a reverse transcriptase enzyme, has been well characterized as a polymerizing agent of the 3' hydroxy end of DNA strands. The specifics of the roles of telomeres and telomerase and their relations to other cellular processes, however, still need to be better defined. Given the current level of understanding of telomerase, however one deduction can be made with certainty. The most useful information research will be able to provide regarding telomerase's applicability as a clinical treatment tool, is information ...
