I think that technology is more bane than boon as they are a kind of danger to us. An example of technology is nuclear technology which involves reactions of atomic nuclei and it is destructive. They can penetrate deep inside the human body where they can damage biological cells and thereby initiate a cancer. If they strike sex cells, they can cause genetic diseases in progeny. Nuclear technology involve the building of nuclear plants where accidents happen and people die or suffer from diseases. An example would be was the Chernobyl disaster which occurred in 1986 in Ukraine. That accident killed 56 people directly, as well as damaging approximately $7 billion of property. A study published in 2005 estimates that there will eventually be up to 4,000 additional cancer deaths related to the accident among those exposed to significant radiation levels. Radioactive fallout from the accident was concentrated in areas of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia. Approximately 350,000 people were forcibly resettled away from these areas soon after the accident. Therefore we can see that nuclear power plants are dangerous and they are built and used by technology thus technology is more bane than boon to the society.
