Medicine - Part 2
Marijuana is used as a medicine for killing pain and relieving a number of symptoms. The use of marijuana in medical practice is, however, not legal in many states in the USA. The medical term for marijuana is “cannabis”. When patients go through extreme pain, marijuana is used as a pain reliever. It is also applied to treat chemotherapy patients who have loss of appetite due to nausea. The medical use of marijuana as a natural cure has enabled doctors to effectively administer it as a drug for many ailments, including many life threatening illnesses.

Among the diseases medical cannabis can help to treat, there are nausea, glaucoma and anorexia. It is also possible to use medical cannabis during the processes, which accompany medical diseases treatment, such as cancer chemotherapy.
Sometime ago human cloning was just a science fiction creator’s imagination, but nowadays it is a part of everyday life. Human and animal cloning became known to the public quite recently, but it has been in progress for many decades. Moreover, cloning is a very beneficial thing for our and future generations.

The main purpose of a nursing essay (or, more exactly, nursing school admission essay) is to make the committee that will read and study it believe that you are going to make an excellent nurse; and not only excellent, but better that the majority of those who submitted similar essays at the same time with you. Although there are not so many nurses working in the health care system, and there is constant need of more, the nursing schools are still very selective about whom to accept and whom to refuse. It is hardly surprising, for there is hardly any other sphere where an incompetent may cause harm. However, it is none of your concern. Your concern is to get through, and ours is to help you do it.

Schizophrenia is a well known emotional and mental disorder that causes hallucinations, paranoid and delusional behaviour. In contrary to many other diseases, schizophrenia is mostly affected and caused by external environment. People that are suffering from this disorder usually cannot differentiate their imaginative world from the real one. Schizophrenia is very often a result of stress and develops gradually. It is therefore, very important to start early treatment of the disease. A lot of literature gave attention and analysed this disorder, contributing great and extremely interesting data on causes, diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia. Due to its nature, this illness received a lot of reflection in the movies and the main reasons why I have chosen this topic for my research is the attention it received in non-scientific literature and cinematography. One of good examples of the movies that raise the question of schizophrenia is “A Beautiful Mind”.
