Of course by taking the vaccine one cannot eliminate the cancer since it only targets four strains of HPV but it will surely reduce those numbers greatly, and isn’t this what we want in the end? Finally, I believe that whether one should take the vaccine or not is a personal choice. Looking at both the benefits and the risks and seeking advice from knowledgeable doctors, a girl must then decide whether she wants to take the vaccine or not. Take home message: one must not directly believe what he/she reads, information posted online is not always reliable; numbers might seem shocking at first but they might mean something trivial. Always do your research; evaluate the pros and cons, talk to specialized people about the issues, and then make a decision.
Unfortunately, the evidence in the oil’s claim is not apparent to women when reading its advertisement. By examining the rhetorical components of the advertisement it reveals the creditability of the author to be low. Likewise, the advertisement unsuccessfully motivates women to buy the oil by appealing to the emotion around breast cancer. The Healthy Girls Breast Oil website is not effective in using the fallacies of: false cause, either/or, and appeal to emotion to convince women to buy their product to stop breast cancer. False cause is used when two events occur close together in time and connect a cause.
At first we only heard about Ebola in other countries, but when it spread to the United States, our country started to worry and we became stressed. “If we take proper safety measurements the outbreaks can be minimized and hopefully prevented (Federal Info)”. Ebola is a rare and deadly disease that has now affected the United States. According to the (cdc) symptoms of Ebola include a fever, severe headache, muscle pain,
Although many people claim that if physician assisted suicide were to be legalized, it would invite abuse from the doctors and maybe even the family members, according to David J. Mayo, “…Oregon’s 15-year experience with legalized death with dignity provides such conclusive data: The threatened abuses simply have not materialized” (qtd. in Karaim 465). It is normal to think that abuse will occur if physician assisted suicide were to be legalized, but it is next to impossible. Obviously many people believe that if physician assisted suicide were to be legalized, it would target the poor or other vulnerable groups. However, Battin et al., “found no evidence that patients in the vulnerable groups were more likely to receive PAS” (qtd.
About 12% of women in the United States will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, more than any other type of cancer (www.breastcancer.org, 2015). Many people lack the knowledge of how breast cancer is developed. Some people think they will not get cancer because they do not smoke cigarettes, but this is not the only cause of cancer developing in the breast. Anyone can get cancer. Everyone is potentially at risk for developing some form of Cancer (American Cancer Society, 2015).
Being a woman myself and having to deal with “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” is a little bit annoying. I understand that it raises awareness and funds for breast cancer research, but it also seems a little sexist in the fact that we don’t have this much support for testicular cancer research and treatments. Women should not be pressured to get rid of the cancer and not their breasts, or to even be worried about cancer if they have no reason to be.
Alternative Medicine have recently became more popular and more dangerous. Alternative Medicine are basically were people with life threatening diseases go to other countries and get treatment. Most countries advertise these medicines because because they are trying find a cure for diseases.Most of the time these medicines are made from people who know nothing about medicine or anything medical. Illegally manufacturers can use clever names to make their product seem safe group like the elderly. When in reality they most likely will kill or give the people life long illnesses.
(www.newsmax.shtml) The Committtee to Protect Medical Freedom warned that the vaccine would infact put more people at risk of contracting the deadly disease. AIDS is not like polio or smallpox, which can occur randomly without any warning; the public already knows how to avoid this disease. Coverage of ‘promising’ vaccines is extremely misleading, and those being tested so far appear harmful and dangerous. (newsmax.com) Even with the disparencies surrounding these vaccines, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases is sponsoring an HIV vaccine test on babies born to HIV-infected mothers. The program has admitted that a small percentage of their trial applicants have indeed become infected, but now have access to the best medical care available.
At the time they were also battling pandemics and the eminent threat of smallpox. There were deaths associated with the inoculation; so there were those that opposed the idea of prevention through immunization. Today, we are facing a wave of people that decide not to vaccinate their children, and there is a direct correlation between the decline of vaccinations and in cases of preventable diseases. Why are people not vaccinating their children against potentially fatal, yet completely preventable disease? I once worked with a woman that decided not to vaccinate her extremely premature daughter.
