The ethical use of new technologies is important for the advancement of modern health and medicine in many areas including, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, reproductive technologies and genetic research, sports, and nutrition. This is partly because revolutionary technologies have provided new opportunities that raise ethi- cal issues and public debate. In this context, technology is viewed not as a solution, but as a driver of societal development fostering change and generating new ethical considerations to address. The goal of technoethical inquiry within the context of modern health and medicine is to ensure that technological changes are desired and accepted by those affected.
