Doctor A doctor is someone who can help someone else in need. There are many types of doctors, ranging from general pediatricians to specialists. They are respected people and are looked to when something is wrong. Everyone needs a doctor at some point, so doctors are very much in demand. I am interested in this career because I like to help people. Also, it pays well so I can live off the salary. Another reason is because many of my relatives are doctors, nurses, or dentists.

One of the first uses of silicone in a medical implant came in the for
One of the first uses of silicone in a medical implant came in the form of lifesaving tubes implanted into young children to funnel excess fluid from the brain into the chest cavity, where the fluid could be safely metabolized and excreted. Since these shunts were first used, in the late 1950s, silicone in various forms has come to be an important part of many implants. It is used in tracheotomy tubes, in artificial lenses for the eye, in artificial heart valves and in facial implants for bi

This list is far from complete. Human cloning technology could be used to reverse heart attacks. Scientists believe that they may be able to treat heart attack victims by cloning their healthy heart cells and injecting them into the areas of the heart that have been damaged.

Many people suffer from unattractive fat build up in certain areas of their bodies. Women tend to accumulate fat around the hips, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks. Men have problems with “love handles” and their abdomen. Either might have problems with their neck, chin, legs, arms, or breasts. These stubborn deposits remain even after diet and exercise. At best, many people would have to become excessively thin in other areas prior to slimming these problem spots. But now there is away to help peo

This is essentially the same meta-analysis that was conducted by Judge Pointer’s scientific panel. The authors concluded that th

He didn't notice that the lights had changed.(the Beatles, 1967) These lyrics proved to fans that Paul McCartney had indeed died in a tragic auto accident in late 1966. Some people were skeptical about the explanation, but upon investigating the album covers and the lyrics of the Beatles' songs, the story seems to make sense. Some of the lyrics have to be a twisted

Genetic engineering, one of the most recent technological sciences, is now a great issue in society. While the effects of it can be very helpful in some ways, it can also cause many problems. In spite of potential risks, genetic engineering should be allowed in some fields of science. Collier's Encyclopedia defines genetic engineering as recombinant DNA technology, the application of biochemical and genetic techniques to alter the chromosomal materials, the basic genetic substance of cells (Ko

Arterial aneurysms are sacs formed by distention of the artery wall, they are life threatening as they can rupture due to a positive feedback in the relationship that described the stress in the wall of an artery. The blowout of an aneurysm can lead to certain death as blood gets lost, mostly internally, in a rapid fashion. There is a great medical need for an intervention that can be used in an emergency situation in order to allow for enough time to perform a more involved surgery. Previous w

A head-on collision took place today. The impact hurls the boy through the windshield of a pick-up truck and onto the pavement. He dies instantly of massive head injuries. He was only four years old. That accident actually happened on a Pennsylvania highway on a clear sunny day. It is only one of the thousands in which victims could have survived with minor injuries-or none at all-if only they had been wearing seatbelts. But millions of people refuse to buckle up. Statistics show that seatbelts
Yohimbine
Yohimbine
Yohimbine Yohimbine is the by-product of the bark of an African tree. It is felt by some authorities to stimulate sexual abilities when taken orally. The medication is taken twice per day. Studies in the medical literature do not demonstrate any short or long term benefits of this drug, and for that reason, we do not recommend its use. Yet it is the only oral drug available in common use to boost sexual abilities, and it is frequently mentioned in the popular media, or in mailers targeted to old
Birth Control

Birth Control The practice of birth control prevents conception, thus limiting reproduction. The term birth control, coined by Margaret SANGER in 1914, usually refers specifically to methods of contraception, including STERILIZATION. The terms family planning and planned parenthood have a broader application. METHODS OF BIRTH CONTROL Attempts to control fertility have been going on for thousands of years. References to preventing conception are found in the writings of priests, philosophers, and
Blindness
Blindness
Blindness The term blindness implies total or partial loss of vision involving both eyes. The exact level of vision defined as blindness, however, varies in different countries because of differing legal or social requirements. In the United States, blindness is defined as unimprovable vision of 20/200 (6/60) or worse. This means that an individual is generally considered blind who, even with the use of ordinary eyeglasses, can see no better at 20 ft (6 m) than a person with normal vision can se

Cancer I. Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. If the spread of these abnormal cells is not controlled, cancer can cause death. Most cancers take the form of tumors, although not all tumors are cancers. A tumor is simply a mass of new tissue that serves no physiological purpose. It can be benign, like a wart, or malignant, like cancer. Benign tumors are made up of cells similar to the surrounding normal cells and are enclosed in a membrane that
