I JUST NEED FOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERWED ON THESE ARTICLES LISTED BELOW: ONLY NEEDS TO BE 1-2 paragraphs long no more than 250 words for each answers PEARSON WEB ACTIVITY CHAPTER 5 Black Market Bones Organ transplants were once considered extremely difficult if not impossible, but today the procedure has become so successful that the demand for transplant organs has far exceeded the supply available. There are legal prohibitions against the purchasing of human organs, so donation is the only possible source for organs needed for transplants. The organ shortage has given rise to an underground or black market for human body parts. Black market sources include grave robbing, theft of cadaver parts from funeral homes, Willed Body programs at medical schools, payments to the very poor in developing nations, and use of body parts from condemned prisoners in some countries. Some people have even traveled overseas to access these sources of needed body tissues and organs. Some concerned people are questioning whether or not it is time to allow people to make money on transplanted organs in an effort to increase the supply. The question then becomes, how can we safely and legitimately do this? Some argue it's time to allow families to collect money from parts removed from deceased loved ones rather than rely on the generosity of families who donate tissues and organs to those in need. Regulation would be vital, as even now the human tissue industry generates millions of dollars each year. It will not be easy to protect everyone involved in the organ donation process if the ban on payment is lifted.

If the laws are changed to allow a new source of organs, what safeguards should be in place to protect individuals and their families and to prevent corporations from making large profits from the sale of these tissues? 2) Should organs be used that originate from other countries, where condemned prisoners may be used for their organs? What sort of moral limitations should be placed on the use of such human tissues? Think about the conditions whereby such tissues can be legitimately acquired. PEARSON WEB ACTIVITY CHAPTER 6 Are Anabolic Steroids Dangerous? Ever since people became aware of the effects of hormones such as testosterone on the human body, people have used this knowledge to try to enhance human performance. Anabolic androgenic steroids are man-made hormones derived from the basic structure of testosterone and are used to facilitate the growth of skeletal muscle. Although about 100 types of these compounds exist, and they are effective in certain applications, they also cause severe and long-term negative side effects. In general, the side effects are so negative that anabolic steroids have been banned for use except in certain medical situations (for example, to treat body wasting from HIV infection). Even though the negative effects are so widely known, many people, including adults and teenagers, use these drugs to enhance sports performance. Our society places such a high value, both socially and monetarily, on athletic performance that athletes will do just about anything to gain a competitive edge. With multimillion-dollar contracts on the line it's easy for an athlete to justify taking performance-enhancing drugs, even knowing that there could be severe health consequences down the line. However, what is the cost of changing the character of a sporting event? Should one athlete have his or her accomplishments diminished because another athlete ran the event more quickly due to the effect of anabolic steroids giving that athlete faster, better muscle development with less work? Most sports have banned the use of such performance enhancers both to protect the health of the athletes themselves and to maintain the integrity of the sporting event.

What is it about the teen years that make it so vital to understand the serious health problems associated with anabolic steroid use? 2) Aside from the health risks involved with athletes taking steroids, what about the issue of fair play? Is this just about health or is it about the integrity of a sport? Should a player taking steroids be permitted to hold the new record for, say, home runs in a season? Discuss the implications of steroid abuse and the conduct of sporting events in general.
