Are Cell Phones to Die For? - Tens of millions of people all over the world use cell phones on a daily basis. As of 2002, 100 million people and rising had cell phones just in the United States alone (EHSO 1). However, if an individual considered their cell phone to be a cause of brain cancer, would one still be inclined to utilize it. Some researchers have implied that the use of cell phones is a potential cause of brain cancer. On the other hand, this claim has not yet been sufficiently established. Of course it is understandable why one may suppose cell phones to produce brain cancer....   [tags: Technology ]

Death to the Old or Death to the Young? - Death to the Old or Death to the Young. Since Dolly the cloned sheep was born on February 24, 1997, stem cell research in the United States has been a widely debated topic, especially after President Bush’s August 9, 2001 speech, allowing federal funding for limited stem cell research. Stem cells, obtained from an embryo, are cells that have not developed to the stage in which they are specified. Thus, a stem cell can develop into any type of cell in the adult human body. In the process of obtaining stem cells from week-old embryos, the embryos are destroyed....   [tags: Science Cloning DNA Papers]

All organisms are constantly dividing and growing throughout their life time. The cell-division cycle in eukaryotes is a complex process that involves cyclins, cdks and multiple checkpoints that eventually lead to cell division. There are two different types of cell division which are Meiosis and Mitosis.

Endless Opportumities - Since its development, stem cell research has caused a big ethical debate across the nation. The stem cell lines developed for stem cell research are gathered from embryos after fertilization. An embryo is then divided into individual cells to create a stem cell line. From the embryo, one cell is placed in a dish and nourished with substances that stimulate the cell to divide. The resulting line will then continue to divide in a controlled environment if taken care of properly (Creating Stem Cells For Research)....   [tags: Medical Research]

Cell membrane - In life, it is critical to understand what substances can permeate the cell membrane. This is important because the substances that are able to permeate the cell membrane can be necessary for the cell to function. Likewise, it is important to have a semi-permeable membrane in the cell due to the fact that it can help guard against harmful items that want to enter the cell. In addition, it is critical to understand how water moves through the cell through osmosis because if solute concentration is unregulated, net osmosis can occur outside or inside the cell, causing issues such as plasmolysis and cytolysis....   [tags: Osmosis, Dialysis Tubing]

Many cellular processes occur by diffusion, which is efficient over short distances, but less efficient over long distances. Since all materials going in and out of a cell must pass through the plasma membrane, the greater the surface area of this membrane, the faster a given quantity of molecules can pass through. Smaller cells have a much greater surface-to-volume ratio than larger cells and therefore can "feed" all areas of the cell in less time....   [tags: essays research papers] 1053 words

However, when referring to tumors, cell migration is dangerous. Skin tumors arise in the epidermis. The tumor then invades the dermis, creating a metastatic lesion, which breaks down tissue, including bone.
