We all know that the technique of medicine has developed quickly and exquisitely.Say, Doctors take out part of the human body and replace it with artificial parts. Teeth are replaced with silver or gold, and blood vessels are replaced with plastic tubing. It's said these artificial parts work almost as well as the real ones,and people live longer and more comfortable lives thanks to this medical advance. It sounds really amazing and unthinkable to me.What do you think of it? I mean,plastic tubing can really work just as really blood vessels? Haha,maybe it's only a kink in my nature.

I will rather habve the real thing inside my body than those plastic tubings.. haha ^_^ If comes one day, our whole body parts can be replaced by medical advancements products, then it will be very scary.. As humans wun be really humans as they have no flesh or feelings already.. We will just look human on the outside, but inside the body, are nothing but replacements..

Yes, there have been a lot of advances in medicine and it seems to be coming faster everyday, but it has been my experience that the knowledge they have is very small compared to what they don't know. Everyone is different and reacts differently to medicine and as quickly as they put something on the market, they take something off because of bad side effects.

The medical world is about as baffling to me as outer space is. There are things I would not think possible that are done pretty much on a daily basis. I have seen people with artificial limbs, and unless you knew them you wouldn't notice anything at all. So, artificial blood vessels doesn't surprise me in the least.

As the medical science is making great strides so also are the new challenges. The number of new diseases and complexities are also on the rise.Are the new developments reducing the risks ? No way ,in that we are under tremendous pressure in everything we do and most importantly how we do. We are now more prone to diseases than a few years ago.We have can not liberties in the diet. And side effects of medicines are also increasing. One thing for sure we can say that the potential of human mind and intelligence has been proved to be great with these wonderful discoveries.They can win noble prizes for some but we can not say with the same surety that these guarantee human happiness and peace of mind at large.

medical advancements have really made things easier for example is test tube baby.earlier a lot of people will have to live without any child for their lives simply because they couldn't conceive sometimes due to physical incapability or infertility issues.but today medicine have made it possible through a test tube baby.they transfer the foetus in the mother's womb and it grows as a healthy child making it possible for the couples to enjoy parenting.

When you think about it, it is amazing how far doctors, science and technology has come over the years. It is like we are constantly striving for a way to stretch life out for as long as possible and it is brilliant what can be done to save peoples lives. I think that they need now to work on something to stop us aging at a certain age so we just stay the same age until we die, then we do not have to worry about plastic surgery and stuff!!
