Junk Food in Schools

CoolCat123
Merlito

Kids should be allowed to eat and receive junk food at school. The reason why they can't right now is because they're "obese". This is not true. Sure some kids are obese- but why should everyone be punished? Kids should be allowed to eat/receive junk food at school....

Right Libertarianism (Pro) vs Left Libertarianism (Con)

Heraclitus
Voidness

I have never understood how Libertarianism can left wing. I will argue why Right Libertarianism is better but also how it is the only real form of Libertarianism. Also that the only true Anarchists are the Anarcho-Capitalists. First definitions- Left Wing Politics: Political positions that accept or support Egalitarianism. Right Wing Politics: Political positions that view some sort of Economic Inequality or Social inequality as either inevitable, normal or natural. Views differ over wh...

Are video games good for you.

We see that typically in people that don't play action games, their reaction time [on tests of multitasking] lengthened by 200 milliseconds, which is something like 30 percent," Bavelier says. "But in gamers, it lengthened only by 10 percent" (Trudeau). What the stat is saying is that people how don"t play action games/any games have a slow reaction time when multitasking and that gamers have a faster reaction time to multitasking. What this means is if you play video games you do stuff faster t...

Should adolescents be able to watch porn?

Grilled_Cheese
asherphil

Many mothers dont allow their adolescent son/daughter to watch porn which is completely understandable but why is it wrong.If you ask me porn is a great way to lower rape numbers and sex offending crimes.As being a adolescent hormones are high it is quite hard to stop thinking of this simple pleasure especially now where 13 and 12 year olds are getting pregnant.I believe the only way from letting your teen daughter/son from getting pregnant is porn.Teenagers simply aren't physically and mentally...

Chocolate Milk: The Harmful Stuff

mack54136
Ave_Matthew

Is chocolate milk okay to drink? I strongly believe that schools should not allow chocolate milk because a 7.5 ounce can of Coke has 25 grams of sugar while chocolate milk can have up to 20% more, a 8 ounce glass of chocolate milk can have from 15-31 grams of sugar, and yes, chocolate milk may have calcium but all the added sugar doesn"t let your body absorb it. One reason that chocolate milk should not be allowed in schools is because a 7.5 ounce can of Coke has 25 grams of sugar while choco...

Is prevention of cancer really the best cure?

Everstart
2ninjacat

1. Cancer is an acceptable price to pay for the prosperity and knowledge produced and obtained by the jobs it creates in the fields of research and treatment. 2. Cancer is an acceptable price to pay for the morality of waiting past puberty to reproduce which leaves the window open for the epigenetic damage to accumulate from environmental pollution sources, causing cancer. 3. Treating cancer is better than preventing it, no matter the cost of life. About 200 Billion a year is spent on cance...
