I would like to consider doing a paper on:
1) Stem cell research because that is still a big debate with lots of controversy. You have the religious groups and the science groups all arguing about it and I feel like it would be simple to find information on this topic and write about it.
2)How powerfully your mind affects your health. You always hear doctors and people telling you to stay positive when undergoing tough situations regarding your health but what is that just a placebo or does it actually do something?
3) DNA testing like you mentioned in the email is a very interesting prospect because as I said before you have groups that are opposed to it. Also some people just would not want to know that they will definitely develop some type of disease or something like that. This is a topic with a lot going around about it and would be good to write about
