This report is based on a school assessment researching Bioengineering as it has progressed through the recent 100 years and what impacts Bioengineering has on the individual and community. The purpose of this report is also to show a recent development in the Bioengineering field. The finding of this report is great as it shows that Bioengineering is massive to the people that are in need of a body part.

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. Now there are glasses so thing and light that if you drop and step on them they are pretty much guaranteed they don’t crack. This is a break through as the development of eyeglasses continues.
A simple definition of biotechnology is humans' use of organisms. This is a centuries-old practice now known by terms such as cloning. Whenever a human removes a leaf and uses it to produce a new plant, it is a form of cloning. The technology of this science has now reached the atomic level through genetic engineering.
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.
2. Analyse ethical issues associated with bioengineering.
Ethics of bioengineering are very broad. There are a number of right and wrong procedures that are taking place in bioengineering. 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....
