Are electronic cigarettes good for you?
Debate Rounds (3)
While e-cigs are better than regular cigarettes, that doesn't mean that they are GOOD for you. Due to the unregulated nature of e-cigs, a lot of times they contain substances that are far from good for you, such as formaldehyde . Formaldehyde has the potential to cause cancer, which is NOT a positive health effect. In addition, they still contain nicotine, and it may be possible to be poisoned from these e-cigs [same source as before]. In short, while e-cigs are more healthy to a degree than conventional cigarettes, due to their unregulation and possible substances held within it, they are not "good" for you.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct goes to Con because Pro forfeited the last round and plagiarized. Arguments also goes to Con. In round 1, Pro argued that electronic cigarettes are better than conventional cigarettes; this argument was refuted when Con correctly pointed out that it was irrelevant. Con said that the superiority of E-cigs to normal cigarettes does not mean they are good for you--it just means they are less bad. Con also cited reasons why E-cigs can be bad to health, creating a strong constructive case. Pro failed to back up their case or refute Con's case further in the next round, where he copy-pasted a passage that dealt with the economic effects of taxation on smokers and had nothing to do with E-cigs. Pro failed to prove his case while Con made valid constructive points and showed why Pro's arguments were irrelevant.
