Question;Unit 3 Discussion Board 1: CloningEthanol and other fuels manufactured from crops currently cost more than gasoline, but they are renewable energy sources and have fewer emissions. How much of a premium would you pay to drive a vehicle that runs on biofuels?Unit 3 Discussion Board 2: BiofuelsShould animal cloning be banned? Do you feel that in the future, as research progresses in the field of cloning, that a human may be cloned?Unit 4 DB: Henrietta LacksIn 1950, Henrietta Lacks was suffering with Cervical cancer. The resident who was treating Henrietta took a sample from her cervix, and this sample was used to develop the HeLa cell line. The HeLa cell line is an immortal cell line which helped research the different polio viruses and lead to the development of vaccines for polio, amongst other medical advances. The ethical dilemma that arises from this great discovery is that no one asked Henrietta for permission to take a sample and use her cells for research. Henrietta died at the age of 31 because her runaway cell divisions killed her. Her cervical cancer spread quickly to other organs. However, her legacy lives on, as her cells are still dividing and being used-60 years after she died. No one knew, until 25 years after she died, that her cells were the HeLa cell line which has advanced cancer research to where it is today, as well as other medical treatment research. The family has not received any compensation to date. It is now illegal to sell one?s own organs or tissues, but no one is under a legal obligation to share profits reaped from research on a patient?s tissues-or cell lines derived from them. Should the family of Henrietta Lacks be compensated? Her cells are still being sold worldwide.
