Eating meat is good for your health

Noradrenergic
Mirza

Does anyone want to argue in favour of this? Assuming focus on developed western nations, and that extended life expectancy and prevention of disease = good for health. Also, that eating meat is good for your health in comparison to other non-meat alternative food sources (i.e. not to be compared with eating nothing instead etc.). I'll argue against. If someone accepts, this will be my first debate, so please let me know if there is anything that I've missed out regarding format & rule...

Marijuana Is a Medicine

launilove
wweasel

A powerful medicine Marijuana contains an amazing chemical, beta-caryophyllene, and scientists have thoroughly proven that it can be used to treat pain, inflammation, atherosclerosis, and osteoporosis. Jürg Gertsch, of ETH Zürich, and his collaborators from three other universities learned that the natural molecule can activate a protein called cannabinoid receptor type 2. When that biological button is pushed, it soothes the immune system, increases bone mass, and blocks pain signals — withou...

Resolved: Vaccination is Beneficial

InnovativeEphemera
Domr

Previously participated in this debate, however after much effort opponent forfeited in the second round. I will port my opening here. 10k characters, 4 rounds. I expect evidence to back up your BoP in demonstrating that, on balance, vaccinations are not safe and beneficial, just as I will provide evidence where I bear the BoP for demonstrating my arguments.I take no issue with giving you the opportunity to see my arguments prior to the debate.

There are no negatives to moderate drinking

Ore_Ele
headphonegut

The challenge was declined, even though it was said to be "scientific fact." If anyone else would like to defend Geo's comments, this is open to all. This is a challenge based on comments said in this thread. [1] For this debate, we will use the following definitions. negatives - "negative medical effects" so this tosses out any social and financial consequences. moderate drinking - "consumption of 14 alcoholic drinks per weekly, spread evenly throughout the week." This tosses out do...

People with AIDS should be shot into the space.

Geekis_Khan
HadenQuinlan

First, I'd like to ask that people vote off of better argumentation, rather than what they personally believe think, even if the PRO seems a bit totalitarian. AIDS is a big epidemic, yet we still have no cure. So, what is the best way to eliminate the disease? Complete eradication. Contentions: 1.) By shooting people with AIDS into the space, we will almost completely get rid off the disease. Of course, it will still lurk in the dark corners and such, but for the most part, people will no...

Resolved: Abortion ought to be illegal under normal circumstances.

Aaron100
Puck

1. Abortion ought to be illegal The abortion of a fetus is not the innocent action some make it out to be, it is a terrible crime against a child that is not able to defend itself or have a say in its future. When a women becomes pregnet, she has an obligation to care for her baby until it is born and then either give it up for adoption or care for it like she should(in some cases adoption is nessecary, but we won't go into that). 2. A human is made at the moment of conception The second...
