Biomedical Technology shouldn't have a limit.
Biomedical Technology shouldn't have a limit, because it furthers our growth and knowledge in life as well as furthering the ways we can improve and help others such as living longer, curing disease, and getting rid of disabilities.
To cure cancer you need research, to have research and there may be a limit that could be in the way to finding a cure. This could be the breaking or the making of finding a cure for anything. The limits we have is the limits we put on ourselves. To further our research we must have more resources, and be able to test them how we need them. Such as treatments that may be illegal is some country but are effective, this could prevent our growth.
Why should there be a limit?
How could Biomedical Technology help?
Sue Manning stated in her article,'7 Half-Pound Mutts Become First Test-Tube Puppies in World', that a "Team of veterinarians, scientists and lab workers gathered around a surrogate hound and watched her give birth to seven half-pound puppies, the first dogs ever conceived in a test tube." This shows the advancements in Biomedical Technology, Because if we can clone something bigger like a dog, then we can start or learn to clone limes/organs for people that have them missing or need a replacement. This can help so many people by giving them a chance to have normal lives, by cloning what they need for transplants and surgery's. As an example a hurt war veteran that has lost a limb, can have a transplant although it is hard to do such things it is possible.

Is there something made inspired by the human body?
Why shouldn't there be a limit?
In 'Stem Cells Still Unchartered Territory in Sports', written by Will Graves, "At least not in the United States, where medical regulation is more restrictive than elsewhere. To avoid scrutiny from the Food and Drug Administration, stem cell doctors generally perform same-day procedures similar to what Nitkowski received. That's not the case overseas. Clinics in various countries in Europe, Australia and Asia offer far more aggressive therapies. Patients can have stem cells taken out then grown in a laboratory for weeks, producing millions more cells." The European nations can grow stem cells to improve a patients illness, while in the US we cannot do this for a patient and must try other ways that may not be as effective to help the patient.
What is an example of Biomedical Technology?
In an article by Melinda Beck she said, "A new blood test from Personal Genome Diagnostics can detect a specific mutation that predicts whether a pancreatic cancer is likely to respond to treatment." It may not be a cure for cancer, but it can find it early. This shows the uses for Biomedical Technology, as an effective way to help people in whatever their needs may be to help them.
