Sample issue: The diagnostic use of nuclear isotopes has saved lives by providing more reliable diagnoses of certain diseases. However, in the longer term, nuclear medicine could have harmful effects on the human body.
Sample questions: How have today's X-rays improved over those in the past? How is ultrasound used to monitor fetal development? How has the development of imaging technologies improved the diagnosing of diseases not visible to the human eye?
Sample issue: Cellphones are widely used in Canada. However, some studies have suggested that radiation emitted from cellphones may cause damage to the brain, particularly in children
Sample questions: What impact does the ingestion of food additives have on the cells of the digestive system? What impact does smoking have on lung tissue? What effects does expo-sure to UV radiation have on skin? How can using a personal audio player affect a person's auditory system?
