    1818 words, 8 pages

    Brittany Cinkowski English Composition 1 One of the first responses after having your first child is whether it is a male or a female. However, for the parents of one out of 2-3,000 infants, it is not quite that simple. The issue of intersexed children has been on the rise the past couple of years. With new technology being brought forth to treat such children, the issue is often whether or not treatment such as surgery or hormone injections is ethical? Parents should, inevitably, hold off surgery until the intersexed child can decide for his or herself if they wo

    The Changing Perception Of The American Body Image

    What will the average person do to feel accepted? We compare ourselves to the appearance of the people that surround us. For example it has been said that the average person watches four hours of television a day. (Elliot 486.). With so much time spent watching people that seem flawless it is no wonder that most Americans feel inadequate. Plastic surgery seems to be one cure for these feelings of inadequatacy.. After reading about how Americans view their bodies I have concluded that humans need to feel accepted by their peers. The need to feel accepted is shown by the

    On Sex And The Youth On Status Quo

    1245 words, 5 pages

    When it talks in the category of metaphor, sex is utilitarian, the expressions young people used to refer to ‘having sex’ included phrases such as, “putting Colgate on a toothbrush” or “opening a girl”. Girls referred to female genitalia by saying, “they are like doors”. Young people’s analysis about numerous sexual partnerships were expressed via opinions such as, “It is good to have a spare tire; if one gets flat, just fix the other,” or: “Girls say, you don’t need to have one cloth only.” On the other hand, these examples reveal that the adolescents’ metaphorical lan

At that time I didn't even realize that this news would completely change my life.

    What Is An Acl Injury

    A torn ACL is an injury or tear to the anterior cruciate ligament. The ACL is one of the four main stabilizing ligaments of the knee, the others being the Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL), Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) and Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL). The ACL attaches to the knee end of the Femur (thigh bone), at the back of the joint and passes down through the knee joint to the front of the flat upper surface of the Tibia (shin bone). It passes across the knee joint in a diagonal direction and with the PCL passing in the opposite direction, forms a cross shape, hence the name cr

    Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Research The Future Of Medicine

    3215 words, 13 pages

    At one time an umbilical cord was considered medical waste. However, according to the Texas Cord Blood bank, more than 8,000 people have received umbilical cord stem cell transplants. This type of stem cell has the potential to be any cell in the body, and offers less rejection for a recipient that needs a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Information such as this makes umbilical cord research more necessary and Americans should demand that more research be done. One umbilical cord from a single birth provides up to one million stem cells (Greear, 2003). This is enou

    Many scientists around the world want people to believe that there is no means to do research on human stem cells other than to destroy human embryos. Indeed, an embryo is a perfect source of human stem cells, because, in actuality, the stem cells are the embryo. But who can precisely determine where the boundary between an embryo and a human being is? And, does this boundary exist at all? People don’t know.

    A Complete Guide Why is it so popular? LASIK has advantages over other vision correction procedures, including a relative lack of pain afterward and the fact that good vision usually is achieved by the very next day. An instrument called a microkeratome is used in LASIK eye surgery to create a thin, circular flap in the cornea. Another, newer way of making the flap is with a laser. The surgeon folds the hinged flap back out of the way, then removes some corneal tissue underneath using an excimer laser. The excimer laser uses a cool ultraviolet light beam to precisely remove ("ablate") very

The purpose of the head, including the skull and face, is to protect the brain against injury. In addition to the bony protection, the brain is covered in tough fibrous layers called meninges and bathed in fluid that may provide a little shock absorption. When an injury occurs, loss of brain function can occur even without visible damage to the head. Force applied to the head may cause the brain to be dire
