    Stethoscope Essay Examples

    • 1557 Words
    • 6 Pages

    cost of a stethoscope does not change my action. With respect to worrying about debt, there are likely other tradeoffs I can make in my personal life to avoid a stethoscope. I would rather go with that route. While some may have the personal integrity to not be influenced by receiving a stethoscope, I prefer not to put myself in that position in the first place. While the taking the stethoscope seems somewhat unsavory, I do not see an issue with listening to the lecture. Taking the opportunity to be informed of a potential treatment does not seem unsavory. While I could see the potential concern that even taking in the presentation could bias ones judgement, one should approach this with a mindset of extreme skepticism. Nothing that presentation says can remove that fact that the treatment is new and that true effects and benefits, or a lack of them, can take decades to reveal.

His stories bloomed into reading autobiographies of homesteaders, such as The Good Life by Scott and Helen Nearing, and Hard Times in Paradise by David and Micki Colfax. These stories are what led me to live in rural Hawaii where many collect rain water, grow our own food, and have learned to be less consumer driven. While…
