In 1977, Rita and Doug Swan, both Christian Scientists, did not believe in modern medicine, thinking that having “faith in God” was the only necessary “medical treatment”. According to them, being ill was an illusion, so instead of bringing Matthew, their sixteen months old baby who suffered from severe fevers, to the hospital, they paid a Christian Science practitioner to do some prayers for their baby. The practitioner told the parents that the fevers were caused by fear, and that the baby would recover with the prayers.

           Adam summarizes the real problem of eating meat, which is the consumption of all the world resources. Producing meat consumes 70% of the water used by humans and uses 30% of the land on earth (The Guardian). Humans are over consuming meat, and it became a problem due to the maximal capacity that earth can afford.

Makayla Sault is an 11 year old  Ontario Aboriginal girl who was diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia. She was given a 75 per cent chance of survival as she started chemotherapy at McMaster's Children's Hospital in Hamilton (Walker). However, due to the intensive treatments, she experienced severe side-effects.
