There is no iron in your blood
if there is, every time you breathe in oxygen your more likely to get iron poisoning
there is such thing as iron poisoning.

There is no salt in your blood
if there is, every time you breathe that salt will take the moisture
out of your blood and potentially kill you
There is no metal or zinc in your blood
if there is there could be metal poisoning.

Your blood is just made up of three simple things
Oxygen, Water, and DNA
That's It!

Con

"There is no iron in your blood
if there is, every time you breathe in oxygen your more likely to get iron poisoning
there is such thing as iron poisoning."

There are body functions which help regulate the iron amount and with almost every other substance, if not then we would die from overflowing with blood, overflowing water which would make us drown, and overfilling with oxygen to the point that we pop like a balloon. Same thing with zinc. Therefore two of them are sufficient enough for my side of the resolution to be proved.

But also it has been said that blood carries plasma, "plasma, a yellowish liquid that carries nutrients, hormones, and proteins throughout the body". http://kidshealth.org...
and dna is a apart of plasma, not plasma a part of dna.

>Reported vote: ADHDavid// Mod action: Removed<

6 points to Con (Conduct, Arguments, Sources), 1 point to Pro (S&G) Reasons for voting decision: Pro used wikipedia, which is unreliable. Con actually provided refutations to Pro, while Pro just made assumptions and declared it final. Overall, Con won.

[*Reason for removal*] The voter asked that this vote be removed and, as such, it will not be counted against him. For future reference, RFDs can be altered after they are cast. You don't need to get them removed.

7 points to Pro. Reasons for voting decision: Pro had better arguments, spelling, and conduct. :D

[*Reason for removal*] Not an RFD. The voter merely restates their decision without explaining it.

@SJM also I didn't mean that we drink too much water, that is irrelevant
I meant, at birth you take your first breath in water
water stays a liquid in your blood

@ BryanMullinsNOCHRISTMAS Anecdotal, and you do need iron to live, I'm not saying a lot. And I'm assuming you're a troll based off your robot example, so I'm going to stop replying. Also the debate is not about do you need or not need, it's about whether it could be a part of it. Because if it could be a part, then blood is not only made up of those three things.

@SJM that means you are taking advantage of my words, that's not what I meant
I meant a tomato can be the same thing, but I pronounce it in 2 different ways
the tomato is still the same thing even though I pronounce it in 2 different ways

Every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square, and they are not the same thing.

Reasons for voting decision: The resolution is "Blood is only made up of DNA, oxygen, and water." Con wins the debate if he shows that blood is made up of more than those three things, or if he shows that blood lacks those three things. Con showed that blood does have plasma, which effectively negates the resolution. Con wins. Advice to pro: One round debates are generally an automatic loss as it puts you at a significant disadvantage.
