Darwin Award Flight Attendants Augusto
515 wordsThe Darwin Awards commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives: by eliminating themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species' chance of long-term survival. In other words, they are cautionary tales about people who kill themselves in really stupid ways, and in doing so, significantly improve the gene pool by eliminating themselves from the human race. These individuals carry out disastrous plans that any av...

Small Cell Lung Cell Lung Cancer
824 wordsLung cancer is an uncontrolled, extremely deadly division of cells in the lung (World Book, Lung Cancer). The two major types of lung cancer include small and non-small cell. Many different risk factors contribute to lung cancer. There are numerous symptoms that are difficult to detect in the early stages of lung cancer. Doctors use special machines to detect the severity of each stage. Treatments and cures differ in each individual case. Lung cancer is a huge problem because it is the leading c...

Overproducing Thyroid Hormone Renders It Incapable Disease
406 wordsGraves' disease is a basic defect in the immune system, causing production of antibodies, which stimulate and attack the thyroid gland, causing growth of the gland and overproduction of thyroid hormone. Similar antibodies may also attack the tissues in the eye muscles and in the pre tibial skin (the skin on the front of the lower leg). There are three components to Graves disease: Hyperthyroidism (overproduction of the thyroid hormone) Ophthalmopathy, especially protrusion of the eyeballs Dermop...

Abnormal Cell Growth Leading To Cancer
1,619 wordsCancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Half of all men and one-third of all women in the U. S. will develop cancer during their lifetimes. Although it is common knowledge that cancer is generally inherited, this paper will further explore the causes and what happens on a cellular level when cancer develops in the human body. Basics of signal transduction Cell communication, or signal transduction, is simply the means by which cells in the body respond to signals coming...

Types Of Cancer Cancerous Cells
846 wordsOne Conquering Cancer Conquering Cancer One of the first scientists to prove that cancer is genetic was Biologist, Dr. Weinburg. In Weinburg s experiment he took cancerous cells from rats brains and mixed their DNA with that of normal cells. The result was that the cells became cancerous, proving that cancer is in genes. In recent years our knowledge about cancer and what causes it has greatly increased. We now know that vital genes mutating cause cancer. Just one mutated nucleotide out of 15, 0...

Cystic Fibrosis Endoplasmic Reticulum
717 wordsCystic Fibrosis Commonly found in young children, Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited disease that is caused by a genetic disorder. The disease originates in the production of a critical protein that transports chloride ions from one place to another called a cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). The DNA of an infected person is missing three building blocks called nucleotides causing the CFTR protein to be missing one amino acid called phenylalanine. Normally, a healthy CFTR p...

Morally Unacceptable Human Cloning
819 wordsAfter the introduction of the first cloned sheep, Dolly, it was not unexpected that intense discussions regarding the ethical issues surrounding human cloning would be raised. Cloning has been called both a medical benefit and a technological breakthrough. However, activists expressed anxiety and concern that the development might undermine the importance of human individuality, while raising concerns about unethical approach for further research. Heated debates concerning these matters exploded...

Lived Happily Genetic Variation
1,028 wordsLizards to Snakes Many millions of years the planet was dominated by lizards great and small. It was a place ruled by the laws of natural selection where the only way to survive was to be able to defend yourself with what you had. It was a constant struggle for food, shelter, and supremacy. It was about survival of the fittest, because only if you were best suited to your environment would you have a chance at living to reproduce. Sometimes adapting to ones environment could create a whole new s...

Cloning Humans Human Gene
459 wordsRecently there was a major breakthrough in the scientific research? the mapping of all DNA in a human gene is complete. Couple of years ago, this seems an impossible task for scientist to triumph over. All this revolution in science leads us to believe that the day, when the human being will be cloned, is not far away. Human cloning has always been an issue of controversy, be it in terms of ethically or religiously. Taking a look at why cloning might be beneficial, among many cases, it is arguab...
