For example the development of eye glasses by the way the lens its self and the frames have improved over the last 100 years. Glasses use to be heavy as they were made from metal but the development of polymers aloud the frame to become lighter.

A simple definition of biotechnology is humans' use of organisms. This is a centuries-old practice now known by terms such as cloning.

The effects of bioengineering has on society is massive as it can help disabled people in a way that, the effected person can replace their leg if they had it blown off in war. In these unfortunate circumstances they are able to replace it with a prosthetic leg. This type of engineering impacts on a great number of individuals too as it can change their life by replacing and eyeball so the patient can see again out of that eye. This is amazing technology even though it is quite pricey, but yet rewarding.

One of these issues are testing organs on animals, many people consider this to be wrong as it may cause harm to the animal been tested. On the other hand the engineers say this is good because it give them results weather they are getting to what they want for example growing artificial organs inside animals then fitting them to a human body once they are ready for harvesting. This event is wrong and right but ends up helping out the person in need of the organ.

The other ethical issue is that a bunch of people are arguing that it is wrong to have non humane body parts attached to the human body....
