Is Obesity A Disease?

ZainabAshraf

The American Medical Association (AMA) has decided to classify obesity as a disease. Is obesity really a disease?... I argue that it's not a disease at all but rather the natural result of a person making extremely poor decisions about food choice and physical exercise. It's something that can be entirely reversed in virtually 100% of the cases by changing these two simple things. As a result, it rests firmly under the control of the patient, especially if they are educated about healthy nutri...

Labeling GMO food

NatalyS

64 countries ban or have GMO labeling. I don't think that we need to ban GMO development entirely because it has many positive effects. But the health risks of GMOs are unclear. We don't have long-term studies that prove the safety of Genetically Engineered Food (GMF). Also, the number of cancer cases has been increasing in the World over the last 20 years. Many people believe that the cause of it are GMOs. We have a right to know what is in our food and make our informed choice. It is my po...

Cigarette Smoking Should Be Banned Everywhere

Voiceless
Godridden95

Tobacco has been around for centuries and every year it become more deadly. Cigarettes have increased in deadly ingredients that harm the body and are known to kill. These toxins are unsafe and the nicotine makes them highly addictive. Many say, "So what if someone else smokes? It doesn't hurt me." Actually, it does. The U.S. Government approved nearly 600 additives, but the most deadly part of the cigarette is the gas it releases into the air after being lit. There are over 4,000 chemical compo...

Is spanking a child, child abuse?

TheBestMango
AnyUsername

No spanking a child is not abuse, it is considered a proved form of discipline. Spanking shouldn't be the first choice when it comes to a child, other more calm and nice methods should be used first, but there comes a point when if a child consistently repeats an action that dangers himself or others or breaks any rules set in the household, school yard, or public should be "spanked" appropriately. Using this method to reduce defiance isn't taking away any freedom of the ch...

Abortion should not be aloud unless very harmful to the mother.

Commen_Knowledge_97

This should not be aloud, because it is just terrible. Killing one of God's creations for selfish purposes. Even if the child was created by rape, dont kill it! Give it up for adoption. If you made the mistake of getting pregnant, I think you should be the one to take care of the child sense you thought you were responsible enough to have "safe" sex out of marrage!...
