Aplastic Anemia

Cloning
Cloning
Cloning The rapid development of the technology for cloning has led to moral debates around the world on whether or not to ban creating human clones. With the advancement of clone technology two states, California and Michigan have already banned the cloning of humans. Everybody who thought it would proceed slowly and could be stopped was wrong, said Lee Silver, a professor from the University of Princeton (McFarling 1) . . .

Obesity
Obesity
Obesity Obesity also called CORPULENCE, or FATNESS, excessive accumulation of body fat, usually caused by the consumption of more calories than the body can use. The excess calories are then stored as fat, or adipose tissue. Overweight, if moderate, is not necessarily obesity, particularly in muscular or large-boned individuals. In general, however, a body weight 20 percent or more over the optimum tends to be associated with obesity. The body's ability to adjust food intake to body needs can be

Cloning
Cloning
Cloning Pressing the Clone Issue Do you remember when in vitro fertilization (often called ?test tube babies?) was the center of controversy? Many people believed that this technique violated the laws of God and nature! Today, in vitro fertilization creates between eleven and twelve thousand babies a year, allowing many infertile couples to have biological children of their own. Currently, when cloning is mentioned, people tend to have the same type of negative reaction. Some people may react ne

Medical Testing on Animals Every year, nearly 100 million animals die in research laboratories at the hands of curious scientists who perform outdated and inaccurate tests that prove no benefit to humans or animals. Before these animals die, they are routinely burned, scalded, poisoned, starved, given electric shocks, addicted to drugs, subjected to near freezing temperatures, dosed with radioactive elements, driven insane, deliberately inflicted with diseases such as cancer, diabetes, oral infe

Blood is pumped out of the left side of the heart into the arteries - the blood vessels that carry the blood ' s oxygen and nutrients to your body. As the blood pumps out of the heart and into the arteries, it pushes against the artery walls. Blood pressure is the measurement of the pressure of the blood in the artery. Blood pressure measure
