Humans are naturally inquisitive and have always asked questions about the worldaround them. Many questions could not be answered due to a lack of availabletechnology, but many others could be answered through the process of trial and error.Over time, the way humans ask and answer questions about the natural world wasdeveloped and shaped into what is now call the scientific method. It allows scientists toconduct research in a systematic, organized fashion.As humans make new scientific discoveries, they are able to develop additionaltechnologies. For example, historically people used the bark and leaves from the willowtree to treat fevers and pains. This was a traditional medicine that people shared withone another via word of mouth. As technology advanced, the materials from the willowtree could be analyzed in a lab and the components could be studied to see whichnatural chemicals were responsible for reducing the fevers and pain. Research showedthat the willow tree contained a form of salicylic acid and that this was what gave it itshealing powers. This scientific research led to the development of the aspirin we usetoday which is now mass produced (and that you have probably taken at some point inyour lifetime).You depend on many technologies throughout your day that make your modern lifepossible. In this assignment you will look at some of these technologies and thescientific discoveries that made them possible. You will evaluate both the negative andpositive impacts of these discoveries. You will also broaden your scope to look at howdifferent cultures with different levels of access to technology approach the sameproblem – health care.Part I Science in your personal and professional lifeThink about your day from the time you wake up to the time that you go to sleep. List four technologies that you rely on and would find it difficult to getthrough your day/night without. Do these technologies have any negativeimpacts on your life? Why or why not? Think about your day from when you wake up to when you go tosleep. Describe one scientific discovery that makes modern lifepossible. List as many negative and positive impacts as you can think of thatthis scientific discovery and the technologies that it allowed to bedeveloped may have. Evaluate and discuss if the positives outweigh thenegatives overall, or whether the negatives outweigh the positives.Part II Science and technology in a multicultural worldMany research programs around the world focus on the discovery of cures to ailmentsfrom cancer to mental illness. Modern society invests a great deal of money, and time while pushing the boundaries of modern technology to develop new cures, and improveexisting treatments.Review the following Unit 9 Assignment Resourceshttp://extmedia.kaplan.edu/genEd/SC200/1605A/SC200_U9_Assignment_Resources.pdf Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to the westernized hightech research approach to medical treatment. Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to using traditionalmedicine as an approach to medical treatment. Are there benefits to having multicultural approaches to medicaltreatment? Explain your answer. Could these two cultural approaches both be improved by drawing uponthe other? Why or why not? Discuss any challenges there may be in combining these two differentcultural approaches to treatment that have a very different level of reliance onscientific research and technology.Basic Writing Expectations: At least 1000 words not counting the title or reference pages.
