From this example, lead pollution during manufacturing and recycling become a disadvantages of a non-environmental friendly technology. Like lead pollution in this example can cause the death of some species, including human. From the examples above, pollution problem cause disadvantage to a technology, which engineers need to prevent, because it is harmful to human being. Therefore, an environment friendly technology should be nice to human being by reducing
The lax regulation ultimately threatens the necessary and unnecessary creatures present in the environment, “‘pesticides are intended to kill living organisms, something that most would consider an adverse effect on the environment’” (Source G). Pesticides feed into the game of consumerism- people blindly feed into a little game. Without harsh government intervention, those who use pesticides will not understand the full extent to their actions.

In 2000, there was a 3% increase in suicide rates compared to the previous year. The increase from 2003 to 2004 represents the largest single increase since 1988. The suicide rate for people over 60 remains higher than those of different age brackets (prim), but has also continued to decline between 1988 and 2004. Rate for SSRI prescriptions continued to increase between 2003 and 2004, in contradiction to the other age brackets. In the Netherlands from 2003 to 2005, SSRI prescription rates dropped 22% for patients under 20 years old.
A pesticide is a substance used for preventing, controlling, and destroying pests. Pesticides are a class of biocides, which are poisonous substances.

The goal of the field of toxicology is to form ways to prevent, treat, and/or improve the negative health impacts. Environmental toxicology focuses on substances things like pesticides and lead, chemicals that can be released into the environment resulting in negative effects to the living organisms in the environment and the environment itself (Yu, Tsunoda, & Tsunoda,
Chemicals are used to develop the quality of our lives and most of them are not harmful to the environment or human health. Nevertheless, a number of chemicals have the potential to cause harm, in certain amounts, and should only be used if necessary or when the potential risks are appropriately managed. Chemicals affect the environment by being exposed through the air, water, and soil when they are produced, used, or disposed. Their influence on the environment is determined by the amount of the chemical that is released, the type and concentration of the chemical, and where it is found (Common Menu Bar Links). Various chemicals can be destructive when released to the environment even when there is not an immediate, observable impact.
While I believe this to be true, I also think that the happiness required to get ahead in life cannot be acquired from a pill, and must be earned through good experiences. If it was possible to gain happiness from just taking a pill, then people might lose all motivation to work hard, and go places in their life. A happiness pill could create laziness and a sense of entitlement, which would in turn hurt our society rather than helping it. Ravilious explains that happiness is a necessary component of one’s well being, and is also necessary for a nation to thrive (Ravilious, The Recipe for Success). By making all of this happiness artificial, given by a pill, I do not think that the outcome would be the same.

Similar to the quote by Albert Einstein, the individuals who sit back and let the innocent animals be killed are the ones who are causing the evil. People need to open their eyes and see the truth.
