Biology 121 Bioethics Lab 1. What are some of the leading causes of cancer (list or describe at least 5)? Exposure to radiation, sun, polluted water and air, and smoking are known to cause cancer. Also, additives and pesticides is also known to cause cancer. 2. What are some things that happen to cell DNA to initiate cancer (list or describe at least 3)? a. Cancer is a disease of the cell cycle; when cells do not respond normally to the cell cycle control system. b. A mutation (change or mistake at the DNA level) can also lead to cancer. c. Genes that stop the cell for multiplying (tumor suppression genes) 3. Do you think people should be held accountable for lifestyle choices, why or why not? I believe that there is not a perfect answer to this question, every individual is different, and they confront different situations and scenarios. Generally, I would say that people should indeed be held accountable for their lifestyle choices, for example, individuals may develop cancer or other diseases based on a bad habit such as smoking, drinking or even by their eating and exercise practices. These could be prevented if they change their lifestyle to a healthier one.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
