  Answer the two inquiries below. (the inquiries can also be found on pages 140-141)  8. In the 1950s and 1960s, Navajo Indians and  others worked in the uranium mines in New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and  Colorado.  The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) and the Public Health  Service (PHS) allegedly knew that such work was hazardous.  In the 1920s  European studies had linked radioactivity to cancer and determined that  ventilation of shafts could reduce the hazard.  U.S. research in the  late 1940s revealed that cancer was also caused by inhaling radon gas.   Yet neither agency pressured the mine owners to install safety devices,  and neither warned the workers.  Moreover, the PHS monitored the health  of a test group of miners; in the words of Stewart Udall, “The PHS used  the miners as guinea pigs to study the effects of radiation.”  Today  those workers develop lung cancer at a rate five times higher than that  of other people.  Do the AEC and the PHS have any moral responsibility  for these consequences? AND 15. The evidence that smoking  is harmful to one’s  health continues to grow.  Now smoking is linked not only to lung  cancer, emphysema, and certain heart and artery conditions, but also to  cancers of the bladder and pancreas.  In addition, smoking by pregnant  women has been linked to such fetal defects as low birth weight and poor  general health.  With these facts in mind, decide whether the following  people commit any moral wrong and, if so, identify the circumstances in  which each would be morally responsible. The heavy cigarette smoker The pregnant woman who smokes The smoker who encourages a nonsmoker to start smoking The farmer who grows tobacco The cigarette distributor The advertising person who creates ads to entice people to buy cigarettes The well-known personality who lends her name to cigarette advertising
