Vulnerability in the domains of medicine

The polysomy of the adjective, its nuances and approaches allude to the biological and/or biographical fragility or weakness of an individual or social group (populations at risk). Vulnerability legitimizes itself in bioethical discourse. The medicine has had a reductionist vision and neglected the vulnerability of the environment and its impact on human beings. The need to preserve the health of the planet and of all beings living on it. Ethics and law against harmful transgressions and abusive paternalism that use human beings in research protocols in the name of scientific and technological progress.
