User: Why do protons stay together in the nucleus rather than repel each other? Electrons in surrounding atoms cancel the repulsive forces between protons. Electrostatic forces between protons and neutrons hold the nucleus together. Nuclear forces overcome electrostatic forces between protons in the nucleus. Neutrons surround protons and keep them far enough apart to prevent repulsion.

User: From an ethical standpoint, which best describes why new biotechnology products should be tested extensively before they are allowed to be used? There can be unintended consequences to many new biotechnology products. Many new products end up being more expensive than they appear to be. Biotechnology products tend to stop working after a few years. There are usually no benefits to the products of biotechnology.
