Biological warfare (BW)—also known as germ warfare—is the use of biological toxins or infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, insects, and fungi with the intent to kill or incapacitate humans, animals or plants as an act of war.

Biological weapons (often termed "bio-weapons", "biological threat agents", or "bio-agents") are living organisms or replicating entities (viruses, which are. The Biological Basis of Morality. Rarely do we see an argument that opens with the simple statement This is my starting point, then into laws, and, if the predisposition or coercion is.

Fascinated by aging and mortality, West applied the rigor of a physicist to the biological question of why we live as long as we do and no longer.

The result was astonishing, and changed science: West found that despite the riotous diversity in mammals, they are all, Cited by: These biological principles still operate today. As a point of illustration: the SARS outbreak was traced to an area in southern China where civet cats (an unclean animal) are eaten as a delicacy.

However, the laws of clean and unclean meats are not the only biblical instructions that concern diet. their eight-parameter model that have, from an empirical point of view, a similar effect on the mortality curve as the fixed frailty model but that are not biologically interpretable according to.

Short Summary Volume III is unique in the history of bio-science and medicine as it presents for the first time a complete General Theory of Biological Regulation of cells and multi-cellular organisms, including the human new theory also explains the pathogenesis of all human diseases and how to heal them from an energetic point of view, which is the only correct approach to any.

Abstract. The demography of aging involves the investigation of trends in, and characteristics of, fertility, mortality, and migration and how these components of population change influence, and are influenced by, the physical and social environments in which people live.

The Coronavirus Is Accelerating History Past the Breaking Point Every era gets the infectious diseases—and the resulting political upheaval—it has coming. By Kyle Harper. Scale is a very interesting book with a huge amount of insights and fascinating information. Geoffrey West is clearly brilliant.

However, the book is pedantic and verbose, and badly needs an editor (which makes it quite humorous that the book was edited by Cormac McCarthy). Death is the cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism.

Phenomena which commonly bring about death include aging, predation, poisoning, malnutrition, disease, suicide, homicide, drug intoxication, starvation, dehydration, and accidents or major trauma resulting in fatal injury. The remains of a living organism begin to decompose shortly after death.

Eugenics is the attempt to solve the problem from the biological and evolutionary point of view. Eugenics aims to seek out the root of human troubles, to study humanity as a kinetic, dynamic, evolutionary organism, shifting and changing with the successive generations, rising and falling, cleansing itself of inherent defects, or under adverse.

We can simplify the corresponding mortality trajectory, excluding infant and child mortality, by (1) a first plateau or a lowest point, similar to the initial mortality rate (IMR) proposed by Finch and his collaborators (Finch et al., ), followed by (2) an increase in the mortality rate and (3) a second plateau, corresponding to the three.

When I discovered the 'Iron Rule of Cancer' and the two-phased nature of disease inI submitted my work as a thesis to the University of Tübingen in the belief that I had discovered the connections linking all cancers.

Life is the most complex physical phenomenon in the Universe, manifesting an extraordinary diversity of form and function over an enormous scale from the largest animals and plants to the smallest microbes and subcellular units. Despite this many of its most fundamental and complex phenomena scale with size in a surprisingly simple fashion.

For example, metabolic rate scales as the 3/4-power. The report appeared in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute on “We are encouraged by the fact that this year’s report continues to show declining cancer mortality for men, women, and children, as well as other indicators of progress,” said Betsy A.

Philip Ziegler follows the course of the black plague as it swept from Asia into Italy and then into the rest of Europe. When first published inthis study was described by the Guardian as as exciting and readable an account as you could wish."This new edition of the major study on the subject is illustrated by over seventy contemporary black and white illustration/5().

Chapter Gender Inequality 2 sociological use of the term, dogs don’t have gender; only people living within socially step from these biological facts to the view that it is also a fact of nature that women are From an egalitarian point of view, gender relations are fair if, within those relations.

While I have noticed that most of the published data focus on outcomes other than the mortality rate which is more clinically important from my clinical point of view.

Most of the published. Initially, he observed the action of selection on living things in nature—a fact of natural history that is inescapable in view of the high rates of reproduction and mortality in all organisms.

Later, he realized just how creative selection could be when extended over the long history of life on Earth. Scale is a thrilling scientific adventure story about the elemental natural laws that bind us together in simple but profound ways. Through the brilliant mind of Geoffrey West, we can envision how cities, companies and biological life alike are dancing to the same simple, powerful tune, however diverse and unrelated they are to each other.

Definition differs somewhat from your book which gives a broader definition. (view that these biological processes / behaviors need to be regulated by medicine or laws) Feminism, Medicalization and Social Control of Women's Bodies -charles Horton cooley theorized that the "self" emerges from our ability to assume the point of view of.

Abortion continues to be one of the most passionately debated contemporary topics. The weighty moral and ethical implications of abortion also escalate tensions. To fully ponder the ubiquitous and solemn issue of abortion, one must consider questions of morality, biology, and philosophy.

A classical question is drafted for the post graduate students of biochemistry that "Is biological system defy the second law of thermodynamics?" Second law entails that "In any cyclic process the entropy will either increase or remain the same" N.

Terms, defined. For purposes of the Environmental Protection Act, unless the context otherwise requires: (1) Air contaminant or air contamination shall mean the presence in the outdoor atmosphere of any dust, fume, mist, smoke, vapor, gas, other gaseous fluid, or particulate substance differing in composition from or exceeding in concentration the natural components of the atmosphere.

1 And indeed the book's most obvious or- ganizing principle lies in its phenomenological analysis of three forms of activity that are fundamental to the human condition: labor, which corresponds to the biological life of man as an ani- mal; work, which corresponds to the artificial world of objects.

The present work is conducted as part of the development and the valorization of bioactive natural substances from Algerian medicinal and aromatic spontaneous plants, a clean alternative method in biological control. For this purpose, the bio-acaricidal activity of Salvia officinalis (sage)essential oil (EO)was evaluated against the Varroa destructor, a major threat to the honey bee Apis.

“Musings on Mortality is a book suffused with wisdom and argued with the strong hand of a weathered and feeling literary scholar. To treat such tragic and inconsolable subject matter with such clarity and respect, with such equanimity and understanding, is to levitate above it.

A New Perspective on Human Nature only if a person writes a book, for instance, can we say that s/he has the capacity to write a book. through such things as traditions, institutions, laws.

The main concern from an x-risk point of view is “runaway global warming” based on strong feedback loops. For example, global warming causes permafrost to melt, which releases previously trapped carbon, causing more global warming, causing more permafrost to melt, etc.

Biological warfare is seldom used for a very good reason: It is almost completely ineffective against any modern military. They have the proper equipment to protect themselves and they are organized enough to prevent the disease from spreading.

Th.The science of eugenics is still young and much of its program must be tentative and subject to the test of actual experiment. It is more important that the student acquire the habit of looking at society from a biological as well as a sociological point of view, than that he put his faith in the efficacy of any particular mode of procedure.Spencer’s Biological Theory: Herbert Spencer, in his book The Principles of Biology, published inpresented a different biological law governing multiplication of species.

According to him, preservation of species is the general biological law governing the growth of all population – both human and infrahuman.
