Resolution: At least 99% of human adults should eat vegan in the entire world.

"Definition:
What is a vegan? What is veganism?

Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients. "[1].

Pro contends that nearly all human adults should eat vegan. The resolution isn't 100% because some people have rare disease and other extraordinary circumstances that might interfere with such a diet.

Pro focuses on adults because veganism is so rare that parents might not recognize nutrient deficiency in children and babies.

Pro will argue on the grounds of health, environment, animal happiness, and world hunger.

Not trying to force, convince of your own free will. If I was trying to force, the resolution would be veganism should be forced upon 99% of adult humans. Instead the resolution is at least 99% of human adults should eat vegan in the entire world.

I. Health

It is well known that fruits and vegetables are healthy. Vegan diets exclude many foods yet allow fruits in vegetables. Therefore, its only logical that most vegans will eat more fruits and vegetables thus being healthier. A multivitamin can take care of any nutrient deficiencies met on a vegan diet.

II. Environment

Claim: Meat is wasteful compared to grain.
Warrant:"Meat is less efficient because we eat the animal that eats the grain instead of eating the grain ourselves. It takes about 15 pounds of feed to make 1 pound of beef, 6 pounds of feed for 1 pound of pork and 5 pounds of feed for 1 pound of chicken, the Department of Agriculture estimates. For catfish, it's about 2 pounds of feed per pound of fish." [2].

Impact: A vegan diet takes less acreage compared to an omnivorous diet. Helping save the environment.

III. Animal happiness

Animals are sentient and capable of feeling emotions like happiness and unhappiness. Factory farming is infamous for being cruel. Since the profit motive is at work it will always be cheaper to raise an animal in inhumane conditions like battery cages. "In the wake of an ABC News investigation into alleged unsanitary and inhumane practices at one of the nation's largest egg farms, animal rights activists are calling for an end to the egg industry's widespread use of so-called "battery cages," in which birds live six to a cage in long stacks of wire cages. "[3]. Being confined to battery cages cause unhappiness to animals.

IV. World Hunger

In part II Environment acreage was mentioned. The grain lots feeding farm animals could be re-purposed to feed hungry humans. [2].

Claim: World hunger exists today
Warrant: "The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that about 805 million people of the 7.3 billion people in the world, or one in nine, were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2012-2014." [3].

Impact: World hunger could be mitigated if more people decided to turn vegan.

At least 99% of human adults should eat vegan in the entire world. Vote Pro.

Rather a shame that this round was forfeited. The arguments are simple to rebut, and a variety of arguments could be introduced in the contender's favor.

"Your" is possessive.
For example, "your argument is poorly worded."

"You're" is a combination of the words 'you' and 'are.'
For example, "you're a pretty cool dude."

See the difference? :)
