Smoking should be made illegal

Smoking is should be made illegal because it causes cancer, brutally harms the environment and is the cause 6 million deaths around the world every year. 600 million trees are chopped down every year. Why? Just to satisfy the addiction of millions of people around the world. Smoking is completely non beneficial to the smoker and the people around them. I understand that there is a sense of choice for the smokers but the smokers are at the same time changing lives for non smokers around them. If...

JodieS

Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with years of nursing and medical experience who go back to school to become certified as Nurse Practitioners. They are trained clinically to provide primary care services and have a lot to offer. With physician shortages, lack of access to care in certain areas, changes in healthcare reimbursement, it is essential to fill the gap with highly trained individuals such as NP's. In California currently NP's are not allowed to practice without the supervisio...

all drug legalization

Drugs are bad and everybody knows that. But does this mean that they shouldn't get legalized? Because even though it's dangerous should everyone decide for themselfes if they want to do drugs and hurt themselfes. People would die of course but it would have been their own choice and crime rates would go down because there would be almost no profit in being a drug dealer. It should be up to everyone of us to decide what we want to do not some people in ancy clothes in a fancy building....

Water is The Best Choice For Our Daily Life

I believe that water is always be the best choice as a healthy drink. Although there are many healthy drinks such as herbal tea,goat milk,and even coffee. But, water still be the best choice because it is calorie-free and no additional sweetener. Besides,we cannot avoid the fact that H2O is one of the major element in human body. It is about 50-65 % in adult, and in infants is about 75-78%. So,we need more water in our daily life. Source: http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/healthy-d...

Drug Commercials

There must be a way to police these drug commercials. Other countries have laws prohibiting the advertising of drugs to the general public. Let these companies advertise their drugs to physicians through the internet or mailings. I am so sick of these ads. I just change the station. put the sound on mute, or better still, shut the TV off. You couldn't pay me to take this crap!! FDA doesn't care, they are in bed with these pharmaceutical companies, and the networks don't care they are making bill...

Fast-Food should be permanently banned globally.

jakeriverj
Bogs

Fast food should not be banned because in the U.S. alone there are over 200,000 restaurant locations. Revenue has grown from $6 billion in 1970 to over $160 billion last year at an 8.6% annualized rate (1). The fast food industry also creates around three and a half million jobs for people who would lose their job if fast food was banned (2). As well as creating revenue and jobs, another obvious reason not to ban fast food is that it is fast and simple to get. For college students who are too bu...
