Secret Laboratories – Hidden Experiments and Research

Throughout modern history there have been many experiments, which have taken place without the knowledge of the general public. Many of these have been both unethical and unnecessary, and have been conducted for ‘the greater good.’ The majority of them are ordered by the government or military, of influential countries, and include: Porton Down, Britain… Continue reading Secret Laboratories – Hidden Experiments and Research

Secret Experiments – Unethical Projects for the ‘Greater Good’

Many immoral experiments have been conducted for research, to test medications or even just out of sheer curiosity. The experiments often violate the basic human rights of the victims, and can even affect their descendants in some cases. The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male In Tuskegee, Alabama, between 1932 and 1972,… Continue reading Secret Experiments – Unethical Projects for the ‘Greater Good’

Man-Made Diseases – Death Created in a Lab

Many scientists have proposed the theory that a high number of diseases currently plaguing humans are unnatural, and have been created by mankind it laboratories worldwide. The theory also proposes that those behind these creations are the government and other influential leaders within our society. The main reasons behind their creation are population control and… Continue reading Man-Made Diseases – Death Created in a Lab

Human Cloning – The Duplication of a Living, Breathing Being

Cloning is the process of creating an exact replica of something or, in the case of human cloning, somebody. There are many ethical concerns about the cloning of humans, and there have been laws passed in several countries declaring it illegal. In addition, the United Nations issued a Global Declaration on Human Cloning in 2005,… Continue reading Human Cloning – The Duplication of a Living, Breathing Being

Genetic Modification – Changing an Organism’s Genetic Composition

The process of altering an organism’s genetic make-up, to ensure that it will have certain characteristics, is known as genetic modification or genetic engineering. It has already been applied to plants and animals for many years. Even though genetic modification can be used to cure life threatening diseases, many argue that it is immoral to… Continue reading Genetic Modification – Changing an Organism’s Genetic Composition

Genetic Engineering – Altering Humans

The human genetic composition is what determines our health, personal traits and even our behaviour. Genes are passed on to us from our parents, and can also be the source of many imperfections as well as hereditary diseases. As humans we are always trying to make everything better, including ourselves. This has resulted in the… Continue reading Genetic Engineering – Altering Humans
